“FACTS ARE FACTS AND FICTION’S FICTION”
LIARS (Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross) release the first single from their new album, Mess On A Mission, on 17 March 2014.
The single comes backed with remixes from Silent Servant (Sandwell District / Hospital Productions), SFV Acid (UNO / 100% Silk), Black Bananas (Jennifer Herrema of Royal Trux / RTX / Drag City) and young Melbourne based collective Nest Of Teens.
Listen to Silent Servant‘s mix here:
“Mess On A Mission acknowledges some of the modern day issues of uncertainty, of being overwhelmed with possibilities, too many choices and it vocalises them. It’s cathartic and a more positive spin on something our music has always dealt with: anxiety”

Mess is the follow up to 2012’s WIXIW, the sound of a band in an ambiguous, fragile
in-between state. Mess, on the other hand, is Liars with their balls out – an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics that sacrifices self-persecution for potent, purposeful abandon.
Watch the trailer for the new album here:
Liars’ career has seen the band rattle through pigeonholes in an attempt to avoid them all together: brittle yet taut punk funk; liminal no-wave; ecstatic noise-pop;
21st-century garage rock; post-millennial post-rock; delicate electronics; reaching here, where Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross now find themselves – maybe not quite at ease with the world, but staring it straight in the eye while showing their teeth.

Mess is the sound of Liars not only facing their fears, but chewing them up and spitting them back out in all their technicolour glory.
