Northern Ireland trio Fighting With Wire are set to unleash their brand new single ‘Waiting On A Way To Believe’ on 9th July 2012 through Xtra Mile Recordings.
A direct and fast-paced anthem in the making, with driving rock riffs and instantly memorable melodies it is the first track to be taken from the band’s forthcoming second album ‘Colonel Blood’ – the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut ‘MAN VS MONSTER’. An enormous-sounding, stadium-filling collection of heavy rock songs, ‘Colonel Blood’ is packed with belting riffs, brutal rhythmic attacks and sing along choruses. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, with Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Foo Fighters, Danzig) together they’ve created a straight-up rock record that delivers punch after punch of tuneful, energetic, upbeat and damn right catchy songs.
Lead guitarist and vocalist Cahir O’Doherty explains: “With this new record we really focused on the songs, we’re all influenced by early 90’s American rock so making this record we tried to give that 90’s sound a modern makeover. It was great working with Nick Raskulinecz in Nashville, he really got what we were trying to do and helped us make this record sound huge.”
Already this year the band have toured with revered metal pioneers Helmet, as well as completing their own UK headline tour and with the new album poised and ready to be unveiled, it’s going to be a very exciting year for this hard working trio from Derry.

Press reviews for MAN VS MONSTER
“absolutely phenomenal from the start to the end, a flawless modern rock record…” BBC Radio 1 Zane
“are living proof that despite the gazillions already used you can still come up with a fucking great band name if you try. More importantly the music matches; vicious and stinging in parts but applied with dexterity and finesse.” KERRANG!
“these three guys make enough noise to drown out an Armageddon-scale nuclear attack… against a seething mass of generic and unoriginal rock and indie bands.” Rocksound
