About this album

Red Barked Tree is Wire’s twelfth studio album and was released on 10 January 2011in the UK on Pink Flag.

According to a press release: ” (Red Barked Tree) rekindles a lyricism sometimes absent from Wire’s previous work and reconnects with the live energy of performance, harnessed and channeled from extensive touring over the past few years” and that the songs “range from the hymnal Adapt to the barking sledgehammer art-punk of Two Minutes, the album encompasses the full palette of style and nuance that has always endeared Wire to pastel-tinged pop aficionados and bleeding-edge avant-rockers alike.
