Fighting With Wire sign to Xtra Mile Recordings

Xtra Mile Recordings have announced the signing of Derry trio Fighting With Wire. The label will release their new album ‘Colonel Blood’ on the 24th September, the follow up to their 2008 debut ‘Man Vs Monster’ in 2008.

Speaking of the whole experience, lead vocalist Cahir O’Doherty says, “We finished recording our 2nd album in summer 2010 in Nashville with producer Nick Raskulinecz, we were so excited for people to hear it, but unfortunately the label went silent on us. A year and a half later we parted ways but got our record back, we were really back at square one again. But we had this record which we were proud of so we thought we’d put it out ourselves and give it one last tour before calling it a day. Then we got a call from Xtra Mile and a chance to put this record out properly and give it the release it deserves. We are excited again for the first time in two years, this is a label we have always admired and it gives us a chance for a fresh start for Fighting With Wire. We’re very excited and honoured to be a part of the Xtra Mile family, 2012 is shaping up to be great year and we can’t wait for everyone to hear our album!”
