Matzah's SXSW Artist of the Day (Part 3 - Wires On Fire)

I'm especially excited to profile my next SXSW Artist of the Day. Their music was introduced to me by my friend Sam Sunchild and they've been in my cd player every since. Get the Door, It's Matzah! proudly presents:

Wires On Fire

Hailing from the City of Angels, Wires On Fire bring back true punk music to the Los Angeles music scene. Drawing from a range of influences, spanning from Black Sabbath to The Birthday Party to Drive Like Jehu, Evan, Michael, Jeff, and Darren (the recent addition to the band with the departure of drummer Dash Hutton) play an exhilerating blend of alternative punk, whose energy reverberates in the ears of their audience. Their music radiates a unique intensity, with pounding drums, gritty, melodic guitar, and thumping bass, complemented by raw screaming. Wires On Fire' contribution to punk music hasn't gone unnoticed, having toured with The Fall, The Mean Reds, The Icarus Line, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Death From Above 1979, and Dillinger Escape Plan, among others.

Listen to songs by Wires On Fire on their first Buddyhead release 'Homewrecker':
