Liars have indeed been confirmed to open up for Radiohead on a leg of their North American tour. Liars will open the dates in the first half of May as Radiohead heads through the southeast and Texas.
Underworld is rumored to also be opening a later slot on the Radiohead tour, but no official dates have been announced yet.
Liars are touring in support of 2007's self-titled release. The album featured a new shift for the band in terms of style, and its direction was a surprise to everyone, including the band.
“I’d never felt like a songwriter ‘til this album,” explains Angus. “If you told me [in 2006] 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 in 2007. Supposedly throwing theory out of the window in favor of a more practical bent of traditional structure.
