Directed by Clemens Habicht, who has previously worked with Clinic and Tame Impala amongst others, this sinister film takes us on a short journey through the waterways of the Australian bush: http://po.st/LiarsSAZVideo

UK support comes from Glasgow’s Happy Meals.

Liars have, as a matter of course, sounded radically different with each album, pursuing new concepts and occupying diverse mindsets. On this, Liars’ eighth studio album, 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 and reinvent the band’s paradigm – blurring the lines between electronic and acoustic, between the experimental impulse and the addictive pop sensibility.
Angus Andrew decamped to his native Australia, specifically to a remote part of the Australian bush, to create an album unlike any Liars had attempted before. Cut off from the rest of the world in his remote home studio, with no other distractions, Angus gave free reign to artistic impulses he’d never explored and those included experimenting with the acoustic guitar and sampling.
