Liars have announced an as-yet-untitled upcoming new record, due out in August. Based on various social media posts from the band, it looks like the album title might be TFCF.
The bustling backdrops of Los Angeles, Berlin and New York have been replaced with a presence far more intimate and autobiographical as Liars once again boldly step out of their comfort zone into vastly new musical territory. Following an amicable parting of ways with Aaron Hemphill, Angus Andrew decamped to his native Australia to create an album unlike any Liars had attempted before.
In Angus’ words: “My favourite feeling is going into the complete unknown. What’s the point in making something you know you can? My goal was to make creative decisions that keep me awake at night.”
To get a glimpse of the forthcoming album, out in August, watch below five short clips:
Liars have also announced a string of festival dates in Europe and the US this summer ahead of the release of what will be the eighth Liars studio album. With a new touring band joining Angus, the dates will include the first London appearance since 2014’s inflammatory Village Underground headline show, at VISIONS festival in London on 5 August.
