Fighting With Wire: Colonel Blood

You might recall my little rant back in June about the lack of love being shown for a band called Fighting With Wire, and the painfully long wait that we (and they!) have endured for the release of their second album, Colonel Blood. Well good news people, it’s finally here.

I already had a pretty good idea of what to expect having heard a few songs at live shows and online, but to finally have the album in its entirety in my mitts is a treat. Cahir and the boys have done good. Great in fact.

The opening song and first single, Waiting On A Way To Believe, sets the tone for the rest of the record – memorable riffs and energy-fuelled choruses. They’ve drawn comparisons to grunge legends like Nirvana in the past, and although there are definite shades of some seminal nineties bands, FWW have their own unique sound that is laced with their Irish blood – listen and you’ll see what I mean.

I won’t say anymore, but I thoroughly recommend you get your hands on a copy and give your ears a treat. They are currently supporting Coheed and Cambria, so if you can catch them live then even better!

FWW are now signed with Xtra Mile Recordings and the tour means that they are finally playing some venues that reflect their sound and talent. This is a well-deserved new start for the boys from Derry and the only way is up.
