We are WYRES – a melodic punk rock four-piece from Manchester with serious Myspace-era vibes.

Formed at the worst time in history to start a band (March 2020), song ideas flew back and forth over WhatsApp during lockdowns – with 24 home-recorded demos emerging within a couple of months.

The aim was to capture a sound that’s melodic punk at heart while still raw around the edges – in the vein of Hot Water Music, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Bayside, and Beatsteaks.

All four members also played in Failsafe, so it’s no surprise WYRES’ sound captures an element of nostalgia – harking back to the glory days of Myspace and Napster when that band came of age.

Due out 14/01/22, debut single “CIRCLES” will see WYRES begin releasing material recorded over nearly two years of lockdown chaos. More will follow throughout 2022, along with supporting live dates.
