With roots in both Ft. Collins and Denver, Colorados Wire Faces has a sound that can only be described as bigger than the sum of its parts. Their music seethes with primal energy, chaos, and melodic mastery. Singing drummer Shane Zweygardt, guitarist Ian Haygood, and bassist Menyus Borocz stylistically blend elements of post-punk into their groove-focused, experimental Rock N Roll. This concoction is the result of the bands somewhat autonomous style of writing. Their affinity to not subscribe to a particular genre has allowed Wire Faces to stand apart from other rock bands, while strengthening the foundation of their creative center, improvisation.

2011 was a momentous year for Wire Faces. The trio had the opportunity, once again, to play at the SXSW festival in front of a mass of un-expecting festivalgoers. They were named Best Rock Band for the third year in a row, by the FoCOMA Peer Awards, and were nominated for Best Post Punk Band by Westword for the second time. They also released a 6-song E.P., Diamonds & Gold, which gained wide regional acclaim and charted on the CMJs Top 200 list of that year. Since then, Wire Faces has been feverishly writing and recording their sophomore full-length recording, set to release in February of 2013. In fact, the album was written, recorded, and produced entirely by Wire Faces, and finds the band examining a more mature and colorful spectrum of sound. The new release truly marks a milestone for Wire Faces, and is a great indicator of what lies ahead for the band in 2013.
