Additional Information:

Fighting With Wire emerged from the ever creative Northern Ireland music scene in 2003, the brainchild of guitarist Cahir O'Doherty (Jetplane Landing / Clearshot) and drummer Craig McKean (Clearshot). An idealistic bunch, they've 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 what's important: the song.

Press:

"The most essential rock album since 'The Color and the Shape'" - Big Cheese 5/5

"As debut albums go, this is an absolute corker. Derry's Fighting With Wire play like they're already headlining stadiums." - Kerrang! 4/5

"A flawless modern rock record" - Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1

"‘Man Vs Monster’ is a huge-sounding, balls-to-the-wall guitar record at a time when we’ve never needed one more." - AU Magazine 9/10

"Despite what cheery, kid-friendly pop-punk bands might have you believe, it's possible to make energetic, upbeat, melodic rock that doesn't sound so sugary you feel like you should visit the dentist after listening. Northern Irish boys Fighting With Wire - featuring members of Jetplane Landing and Clearshot - have the melody and the hooks, but there's a backbone of solid rock holding it all together to brilliant effect, treading the same loud path as Reuben, and boasting power-pop riffs that The Wildhearts would be proud to call their own. As debuts go, this is an absolute corker." - Kerrang! 4/5

"This Derry trio is hell-bent on ripping rock a new asshole, and for the large part, they do a damn fine job" - Filter

"The tug-of-war between pleasing melody and punk ferocity is superbly balanced. There's plenty of Foo Fighters moments, sweeping choruses and riffs that pack plenty of punch as on Everyone Needs A Nemesis. With a little bit of work from the listener needed to unlock each layer it's a positive and rewarding album." - The Sun
