Alright, so. Liars! Who here’s a fan? We usually are. But then again, maybe we’ve just been fucking with you all this time? You never can tell with Liars!
Speaking of lying, Liars (I mean THE BAND; you know, Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill, and Julian Gross?) have announced that they’ll release their new album, the follow up to 2012’s artsy-fartsy foray into “electronica,” WIXIW (TMT Review), in March 2014. But then again, maybe they’re kinda pulling our legs about that? You never can tell with Liars.
Seems legit though. After all, they’ve been performing tracks from the (as-yet-untitled) album at some recent-enough gigs around town (Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Temple of Dendur, MoMA PS1, Primavera Sound and Sónar Music Festivals), and they’ve started teasing the record in adorable little cryptic trailers that you can’t watch. Just kidding. You totally can. Or can you? You never can tell with Liars.
Anyway, not too many more details as of now, other than the band’s assurance that they are “currently finishing the album at their studio in Los Angeles.” Oh, well I guess that and the fact that Angus Andrew says that work on the new album was “almost the exact opposite experience” of making WIXIW. “Instead of being doubtful, work on the new album has been immediate, fun, instinctual and confident.” Fun? Confident? Eww, I don’t know…
Oh wait. Duh! They might not be serious! You never can tell with Liars.
