LIARS return in 2017 bearing new recordings from deep in the Australian bush.
The bustling backdrops of Los Angeles, Berlin and New York have been replaced with a presence far more intimate and autobiographical as Liars once again boldly step out of their comfort zone into vastly new musical territory.
To get a glimpse of the forthcoming album, out in August, watch these five short clips and follow the playlist to be the first to see and hear additional material. New clips will be added throughout the summer.
Following an amicable parting of ways with Aaron Hemphill, Angus Andrew decamped to his native Australia to create an album unlike any Liars had attempted before.
In Angus’ words: “My favorite feeling is going into the complete unknown. What’s the point in making something you know you can? My goal was to make creative decisions that keep me awake at night.”
Liars also announce a string of festival dates in the US and Europe this summer ahead of the release of what will be the eighth Liars studio album. With a new touring band joining Angus, the dates include performances at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago and a headline date at Brooklyn’s Warsaw. Full details below with more to be confirmed.
