2003 – 2013 (10 years)
Derry, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
Fighting With Wire emerged in 2003, the brainchild of guitarist Cahir O’Doherty (Jetplane Landing/Clearshot) and drummer Craig McKean (Clearshot).
Although the band has gone through considerable changes, notably going through 5 different bassists, the past three years has seen them play shows with the likes of Reuben, Biffy Clyro, Million Dead, Seafood, yourcodenameis:milo, and Future Of The Left.
After putting out a number of limited edition DIY singles and appearing on numerous 'Public Service Broadcast' compilations, they began work on longawaited debut album 'Man Vs Monster' in late 2006. Recorded in Northern Ireland and finally completed in mid-2007, it was released on 10th March 2008 and became a favourite with BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, calling it "phenomenal".
They have now also signed a deal with Atlantic Records.
