Barbed Wire are an emo/alt-rock trio based in Rome. The Sun Sets In The Wrong Place is Barb Wire's second studio album and you can order it now!


Conceived and written between September 2021 and February 2022, then recorded in May and June 2022 in a house in the besautiful roman countryside. The album contains eight tracks of rocking post-punk and was produced by Andreas Macrì and mixed / mastered by Simone Umbaca.


"The location was excellent to concentrate on the 8 tracks and not have time deadlines of work (some songs were recorded at 2 a.m in the morning)

The 8-tracked album represents the perfect mix of 3 different minds listening and drawing inspirations by different music but focused on sounding in a very emo-ish way (90's style) with some post-punk details on the basslines.

Songs talk about those moments you are stuck in memories which let you in trance for some whiles and make you feel you're alone even in your ordinary places.

This album follows the "colour concept" started with BW's first album (purple) as the very vapor-ish colour of memories when you feel nostalgic."


BW will play this album live on tour throughout Italy and Europe this year.

The band started playing a sort of nu-crossover during the first two years of activity, but after that, Barbed Wire turned their style into a melancholic and energetic mix of 90’s emocore (i.e. Mineral/The Get Up Kids/ Texas is the Reason) and darker post-punk sounds. Barbed Wire published their first album, One Last Drive, in November 2020 and performed its songs live in many Italian stages, while working on their second album. Enter June 2022, and the band had completed their next release, titled The Sun Sets in the Wrong Place, with its first single “Bedroom Walls” coming out 9th September 2022 via Engineer Records and Italian labels, Brutto Posto Dove vivere and Non Ti Seguo Records.
