Wire have announced their 17th studio album.

Now 40 years into their influential career, the post-punks will put out 'Mind Hive' on January 24 via their own label Pinkflag. The record marks the band's first new material since 2017's 'Silver/Lead'.

Alongside the news comes the record's driving first single, Cactused, a more poppy affair than what we're used to hearing from them. It's accompanied by a video shot by Graham Duff for the band's upcoming crowdfunded documentary film, People In A Film.

Wire will support the album with a UK tour in early 2020, following which they'll head to North America in the spring, returning on May 21 for a London show at the Islington Assembly Hall. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on October 25.

'Mind Hive' tracklist:

1. Be Like Them
2. Cactused
3. Primed and Ready
4. Off The Beach
5. Unrepentant
6. Shadows
7. Oklahoma
8. Hung
9. Humming
