August is a big month for Liars as they release their new self-titled album and the single for Plaster Casts of Everything. As if that's not enough, they've just announced tour dates with Interpol!
The two bands will spend the better part of September and August tooling around the US, largely avoiding middle America with the exceptions of cities like Kansas City, Minneapolis, Denver, Salt Lake City, and Boise.
You can watch the Liars video for Plaster Casts of Everything above. It's from the album Liars on Mute Records, and was Directed by Patrick Daughters.
It's an album that will feature a bit of a new shift for the band in terms of style, and its direction is a surprise to everyone, including the band.
“I’d never felt like a songwriter ‘til this album,” explains Angus. “If you told me last year Liars would release a record like this, I would have laughed. If you said I’d be playing guitar solos, I’d have called you a liar. We never know what we’re making ‘til it’s made… this time I’m a bit shocked.”
The band spent 3 weeks in Berlin recording the album earlier this year. They supposedly threw theory out of the window in favor of the mare practical bent of traditional structure.
