LIARS NEW ALBUM 'MESS' OUT March 25th, 2014

LIARS (Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross) release the first single from their new album, “Mess On A Mission,” on March 18th, 2014.

The single comes 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.

Listen to Silent Servant's mix HERE

“Mess On A Mission acknowledges some of the modern day issues of uncertainty, of being overwhelmed with possibilities, too many choices and it vocalises them. It’s cathartic and a more positive spin on something our music has always dealt with: anxiety”

The new album, Mess, will be released on March 25th on CD, double vinyl, download plus an extra special limited edition vinyl, which sold out in less than 24 hours.

Mess is the follow up to 2012’s WIXIW, the sound of a band in an ambiguous, fragile in-between state. Mess, on the other hand, is Liars with their balls out – an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics that sacrifices self-persecution for potent, purposeful abandon.

Watch the trailer for the new album HERE

Liars' career has seen the band rattle through pigeonholes in an attempt to avoid them all together: brittle yet taught punk funk; liminal no-wave; ecstatic noise-pop; 21st-century garage rock; post-millennial post-rock; delicate electronics; reaching here, where Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross now find themselves – maybe not quite at ease with the world, but staring it straight in the eye while showing their teeth.
