Liars to Make a ‘Mess’ of the U.S.
Experimental electronic band Liars have just announced their plans for a short U.S. tour in order to support their new album, Mess, due out March 25 via Mute Records. The tour will kick off on April 26 at Desert Daze Festival in Mecca, CA, and then it continues to Austin, TX (at the Austin Psych Fest); Philadelphia, PA; New York, NY; Brooklyn, NY; Allston, MA; George, WA (at Sasquatch! Music Festival); and Portland, OR, with a final show on May 27 at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets for the concerts, both solo and festival appearances alike, are on sale now.
Formed in Los Angeles in 2000, Liars is comprised of vocalist and guitarist Angus Andrew, percussionist and guitarist Aaron Hemphill, and drummer Julian Gross. The band is known for their dramatic stylistic changes between albums, moving from punk to harmonies and sound looping to electronica and back with ease. They’ve released six albums and a whopping 18 EPs and singles from 2001 through the present day, including 2007’s Liars and 2012’s WIXIW, with their seventh album to be released this month.
