With comparisons being drawn from Black Label Society, Metallica, Pantera, Rob Zombie and other heavy hitters on the main stage, it's easy to see Open Wire's appeal. Known for their high-octane shows, tight playing and diversified discography; Open Wire is a band of constant evolution. They have two albums, 2012's "Naked Dreams" and 2015's EP, "Zero Crossing". They are currently in the studio working on their third and as-of-yet untitled album.
Formed in early 2011 over a chance meeting between guitarist Dan Wuensch and vocalist Matt Thies over a bummed cigarette, the entity known as Open Wire grew out of a few short jam sessions that Dan invited Matt to to meet Eric and Phil. Having found a voice to match their style, Open Wire evolved into a reality beyond a weekend hobby.
This hard rock show is driven by the galloping thunder of Phil Milligan’s drumming, Dan Wuensch’s intricate guitar riffs, the bone rattling bass playing of Eric LeRay and Matt Thies’ howling vocals.
