By Josiah HughesAs previously reported, British post-punk forefathers Wire are returning with their 12th studio album, Red Barked Tree, on January 11 via their Pink Flag imprint. Like any hardworking band, that means the group will embark on a flurry of world tour dates in the new year.
To start things off, the band will spend January and February travelling through Australia, the UK and Europe. Those dates are available for your perusal here.
