Q – “Liars’ untidy room remains a wonderful place to visit”
UNCUT – “…always at the vanguard, never running with the pack”
CLASH – “2014 is all about ‘Mess’…It sounds exciting, it sounds new – it makes a man want to fall in love with this band all over again.”
LIARS (Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross) release their new album, Mess, on 24 March (25 March in the US).
Listen here a week ahead of release on NPR: http://n.pr/1eKYhU2
Described by Clash as sounding “like a rave at the apocalypse”, the new album is an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics that sacrifices self-persecution for potent, purposeful abandon and sees Liars if maybe not quite at ease with the world, then at least staring it straight in the eye and showing their teeth.
The first single, ‘Mess On A Mission‘, is out this week. 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, the release will be followed by an exclusive Record Store Day limited edition vinyl embedded with string on 19 April.

Live, Liars are unmissable. Known for their turbulent, intoxicating and inventive performances, the band recently announced a North American tour. With stops at Austin Psych Fest, New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge and Sasquatch Music Festival, the dates will be followed by UK / European shows, to be announced shortly.
