Wire's first three albums Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, and 154 are undisputed post-punk classics that heavily influenced countless artists and still remain vital and relevant today. Today Wire announced the release of special expanded editions of these timeless albums, plus remastered standard editions of the original releases on vinyl and CD.

The expanded editions of Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, and 154 are encompassing definitive versions. Pink Flag will be released as a 2CD set; Chairs Missing and 154 are both 3CD sets. The first disc in each set includes a remastered version of the original material, and the extra disc(s) come with a ton of bonus material including non-album singles, b-sides, alternate versions, demos, and previously unreleased material. The sets are packaged with an 80 page hardback book with lyrics, commentary, archival photos, and new interviews with Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey, and Bruce Gilbert. These special editions arrive May 18th and are available to pre-order through Wire's store. It should be noted that the extra/bonus tracks from these reissues will not be released digitally.

On June 22nd, Wire will issue standard CD and standard vinyl editions of Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, and 154. Other than remastered audio, Wire attempted to keep these standard editions as similar to the original releases as possible. The vinyl releases have the same artwork as the originals (minus the Harvest logo). The digi-pack CDs have identical tracklistings to their vinyl counterparts. According to Wire, "these versions should be considered Wire’s classic 1970s albums, pure and undiluted."

Meanwhile Wire will be releasing a singles box set for Record Store Day in the U.K. on April 21st. The box set Nine Sevens collects nine 7-inch singles recorded between 1977 and 1980 along with the rare EP given away with the first pressings of 154. Though the release is restricted to the U.K., the singles will be individually released digitally after Record Store Day.
