FACT - “When Liars assured us that they intended to have fun on this record they weren’t kidding, and with all this devil-may-care revelry finally the tenor of angst that’s forever underscored their sound has melted to nothing.”
GRAZIA – “Unforgettable”
GQ – “[a] frantic synthstorm”
LIARS (Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross) announce details of a new single, ‘Pro Anti Anti’, out on 9 June 2014.
Described by Spin as “a fiery cacophony of fuzzy, jarring tones and marching beats”, by NME as “a nasty banger” and by The Quietus as “one of the most pugilistic bangers Liars have every written”, you can listen to ‘Pro Anti Anti’ here: http://youtu.be/c9C13jk1VL0
The single is released on limited flesh coloured vinyl and download and features remixes from Factory Floor whose recent remix credits include Trent Reznor and Daniel Avery, London’s Truss, who remixed Depeche Mode’s ‘Should Be Higher’ and the mysterious Melbourne collective Nest Of Teens who remixed Liars’ previous single, ‘Mess On A Mission’, the single comes backed with an exclusive new track ‘Waste Fraud’ and a radio mix from Daniel Miller. ‘Pro Anti Anti’ is the latest single to be taken from their critically acclaimed seventh studio album, Mess (out now).
Live, Liars are unmissable. Known for their turbulent, intoxicating and inventive performances, the band embark on a North American tour this month and return to Europe with two festival shows: La Route du Rock in France and the Jabberwocky festival, London in August.
Due to a back injury, Julian Gross is unable to perform on the tour. In his place, drumming duties will be handled by Butchy Fuego who has worked with The Boredoms since 2007, as well as Nite Jewel, Rainbow Arabia, M.I.A. and Pit Er Pat, amongst others. Speaking about Julian’s injury, Liars have said:
“Dear people of the world, it is with great sadness that we must report some painful news about our fearless drummer Julian. He recently has been afflicted by a crippling back injury that has prevented him from [amongst other things] drumming, dancing and traveling. As such we've had to come to grips with the fact that Julian will not be able to perform with us on our upcoming string of shows. For his health and his future it's best that Julian stays in Los Angeles to rehab and take care. Please make an effort to send him all the get well wishes you can muster. Love, Liars”

Mess - the follow up to 2012's WIXIW - is an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics that sacrifices self-persecution for potent, purposeful abandon and sees Liars if maybe not quite at ease with the world, then at least staring it straight in the eye and showing their teeth.
