One thing's for sure in the new Liars video: the dry cleaning delivery game ain't what it used to be. A stout middle-aged dude is on the hunt to quell his murderous rampages, and he's singled the members of Liars (maybe he didn't like the last album?) He manages to bungle the deed on lead singer Angus Andrew, though, he as escapes from the van and runs down an alley, complete with the aptly titled signs that read "End" and "There's nowhere to go," which pretty much sums up his situation at that moment. The fight for survival begins just as video ends, and ladies and gentlemen, I do believe we have the first chapter of a serial on our hands. Look for more to come, in the meantime "No 1 Against the Rush" is from the forthcoming Liars album WIXIW, due out on June 5th via Mute Records. And that's the truth. Do you like this video?

“Beginning with Patrick Daughters' video for Plaster Casts Of Everything, we've really enjoyed giving directors complete freedom in executing a visual interpretation of a Liars song entirely based on their own reaction to the song, free from any factual references or creative input from us. We were really won over by Todd Cole's enthusiasm for “No. 1 Against The Rush”, as well as his very musical and rhythmic pacing in his treatment. Despite being wrapped head to toe in plastic, being dragged through broken glass, and being strangled to the ground, we had the easiest job to do on the set and we eagerly look forward to any new forms of punishment that can be inflicted upon us in making the next video," said Aaron Hemphill about working with director Todd Cole.
