Boy oh boy, sure is a lot of buzz about Liars’ new record, and since they keep releasing tiny bits of info at a time, we keep on talking about them like every damn day. So I’m officially making this a separate news section, called Liars Beat.
Today on Liars Beat: our investigative team was able to uncover the new album’s title, which will henceforth be called WIXIW (pronounced “wish you”). The title is explained by front man Angus Andrew as “a familiar and universal sentiment of longing and hope, but when misspelled becomes uniquely shrouded and difficult to interpret, which in many ways is representative of our music and the songs we wrote for this album.” Here’s a trailer for the album:
The 11-track album due out June 5 on Mute will be preceded by a single, “No.1 Against The Rush,” out May 29. You can listen to it here.
And lastly on Liars Beat, we have uncovered the first handful of shows in support of the new record, listed below along with the album’s tracklist. Stay tuned for all the latest. Next time, we’ll discuss possible rumors of a Vegas wedding involving Julian Gross and a camel.
