Post-rock legends Wire have announced new release details for “PF456 DELUXE” which will be released on Record Store Day on  June 12th, through their Pink Flag label. 
PF456 REDUX was originally released in 2002, comprised of tracks from the two “Read & Burn” EPs, plus the album “Send”, all of which were edited in length to accommodate the vinyl format. This new Deluxe edition for Record Store Day 2021 sees the tracks released at their full length, most of which for the first time on vinyl plus the “12 Times You” 7” vinyl thrown in for good measure. “PF456 REDUX” will also be re-released on CD.
PF456 DELUXE comprises 2×10” singles + 1×7” single housed in a hardback book designed by Jon Wozencroft, including a 6000 word essay from writer Graham Duff, with new interviews with Wire’s Bruce Gilbert, Colin Newman, Robert Grey and Graham Lewis, as well as complete lyrics and recording details, plus many previously unpublished photographs.

Following their 1990’s hiatus Wire reformed in 1999 and after setting up their own pinkflag imprint, between 2001–2003 released five distinct Wire items: Twelve Times You (7” vinyl). Read & Burn 01 (CD EP) / Read & Burn 02 (CD EP) / Send (CD album) / Redux (vinyl album).

Following the 2 “Read & Burn” CD Eps Wire released the full length album “Send“, combining some tracks from both Read & Burn EPs and four unreleased pieces. Since none of the tracks had previously been issued on vinyl, a creative solution was sought to include all of the tracks from Send and the two Read & Burn EPs. However, none of the tracks on pf4, pf5 and pf6 were ever put out on vinyl at full length – hence “PF456 Deluxe”
