Midnight Wire are a four piece Indie/Rock band from Leicester – previously described as a cross between Two Door Cinema Club and The Libertines.
Their first worldwide release ‘Oh Lola’ received national radio play and was toured with Midnight Wire’s debut 35 date headline UK tour.
Their second release ‘Not Just Selfish’ received worldwide radio play and was also toured extensively. The track has now racked up over 70,000 views which is an astonishing feat for any unsigned band.
Recent shows have seen them appear at Gary Numan, Chris McCormack and Carl Barat’s club night ‘Jubilee’ at the Camden Barfly, multiple O2 Academies as well as appearances at the likes of Summer Sundae Festival, Riverside Festival, Strawberry Fields Festival and a hometown show at De Monfort Hall in Leicester.
Other successes include headline appearances at Oxjam Islington and Oxjam Hackney and being crowned winners of the OBS 2012.
Midnight Wire’s most recent track ‘Never Gonna Leave LA’ was featured on Huw Stephens BBC Radio 1 track of the week and received over 27 plays in its first day on radio. The release saw the band attract the attention of a number of major record labels and the next release seems more than likely to be a success.
In aid of charity, Midnight Wire agreed to feature at Soccer Six alongside Babyshambles, The Enemy, XFM and many more.
With the debut album out September 2014 - this is the band to watch out for.
