Liars are currently on tour in support of WIXIW (released 6/5) with Cadence Weapon and Unknown Mortal Orchestra in select cities. Be sure to follow the band on Instagram for updates from the road @Liarsliarsliars!
Liars are pleased to share a video [below] produced by the talented Yours Truly featuring the band’s single “No 1. Against The Rush.” Filmed in an LA studio, the video is an intimate behind the scenes glimpse of the boys doing what they do best, making eerily beautiful soundscapes.
You can also watch the official video for “No. 1 Against the Rush” directed by Todd Cole HERE.
WIXIW is Liars’ sixth studio album and the follow up to 2010’s critically lauded Sisterworld, which garnered an 8.1 Pitchfork rating and Best New Music.
The album, with artwork designed by John Wiese, is available on CD, deluxe vinyl (with CD) and digital. The limited edition wax-dipped silk-screened vinyl made by Liars themselves is now sold out.
Recorded in LA, self-produced by the band with additional production from Mute boss Daniel Miller and mixed by Tom Biller, the album is hard to shake, tough to pin down, and impossible to get out of one’s head even after an initial listen. Simultaneously the most accessible and most challenging release from these iconoclasts, it is both a summation of Liars’ work up to now, and a complete break from anything you’d ever heard the band do previously.
