Fighting with Wire were an alternative heavy rock and punk band hailing from Derry, Northern Ireland. They toured with an extensive list of alt rock heroes including Biffy Clyro, Million Dead, Reuben, Twin Atlantic, yourcodenameis:milo, Kerbdog, Helmet, You Me At Six, Nomeansno, InMe, Brigade, Against Me! and Seafood. Ten years after inception and a year after Xtra Mile released second album Colonel Blood, Fighting With Wire left a gaping hole in the UK's reliable rock arsenal. Their final gig was in their hometown, attended by labelmate and fan Frank Turner. They will be missed. Vocalist and guitarist Cahir O'Doherty - also of the excellent Jetplane Landing - played guitar on tour when Frank was unable to due to surgery. Thus, Fighting With Wire earns lifetime membership status with the Xtra Mile family.
