Band will drop new LP and play gigs this June
Liars have confirmed that they will release a new studio album this June.
The band, who dropped their last LP ‘Sisterworld’ in 2010, will put out the as-yet-untitled record – which will be their sixth studio effort – on June 4.
Speaking about the record, frontman Angus Andrew said:
If we aren’t confusing people, it’s not us. If we aren’t confusing ourselves with what we do, then we’ve failed.
Previously, the band had hinted that they were working on new material by posting a video on their Tumblr site Amateurgore.
The clip features an unspecified piece of music with interspersed images of Andrew and co at work in the studio on new material. It also includes random images of knives being sharpened and ambulances on fire, as well as shots of the trio digging graves together, before finishing with the words ‘June 2012’ on the screen.
Liars have also announced a string of UK shows which will take place this summer. Starting with an appearance at Field Day festival in London on June 2, the band will also play the UK capital’s XOYO venue on June 12 and Manchester Ruby Lounge on June 15.
