Fighting With Wire Call It Quits

After a week of speculation and worrying Tweets about playing their final shows, the news that Irish rock band Fighting With Wire are splitting has finally been confirmed.

A statement on the band’s Facebook page says:

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped and supported our band over the last ten years, time has come to call it a day. It has been an amazing journey and we are grateful for every opportunity we got along the way. We worked hard and tried our best and we're proud of FWW, we achieved more than we ever thought we could and we enjoyed every minute.
We have a few more shows booked and a final show in our home town Derry in September, we'll post details about these shows soon. A massive thank you to all the bands we've played with and all the great friends we made, keep it tense brothers and sisters ;-)
Thank you for coming to our shows, buying our records and believing in our band. See you on the road.

Jamie, Craig and Cahir

Well I for one am devastated. I’ve spent many years telling anyone who would listen about how great this band are, and constantly feeling like they were on the edge of hitting the big time. Recently this has seemed closer than ever with the much anticipated release of Colonal Blood and tour supporting Coheed and Cambria, so the news that they are splitting up has come as a bit of a shock!

Who knew that when I saw them in Brighton last summer that would be the very last time? All I can say is a great big thank you to a massively under appreciated band. Thanks for the memories, the music, and the gigs that I had the privilege of attending. Best of luck for the future, you will be greatly missed!

Right, I’m off to play Man vs Monster until my ears bleed and drown my sorrows in a pint of Jack….
