Fighting With Wire

Fighting With Wire

Hometown: Derry (Northern Ireland)


Fighting With Wire emerged from the ever creative Northern Ireland music scene in 2003, the brainchild of guitarist Cahir O¹Doherty (Jetplane Landing / Clearshot) and drummer Craig McKean (Clearshot). An idealistic bunch, they¹ve since done what rock bands are meant to do: they wrote a bunch of songs, and took to the road. The last three years has seen them play shows with the likes of Reuben, Biffy Clyro, Million Dead, Seafood, YCNI:M and Future Of The Left, racking up hundreds of miles and honing their live show into a ferocious explosion in the process. After putting out a number of limited edition DIY singles, they took a breather at the end of 2006 and finally started work on their long awaited debut album. Recorded in Northern Ireland and finally completed in mid–2007, Man Vs Monster is a dynamic beast of a record raging out of your speakers one moment yet gentle and intricate the next, and all without losing focus of what¹s important: the song. What¹s next for Fighting With Wire– More touring and more songs, we would expect.
