Liars Announce Tour, Expand on Sisterworld

If news of the forthcoming Liars album, Sisterworld, wasn't exciting enough for the super-fans, maybe their announcement of an expanded edition of their fifth album will be. The special version of Sisterworld will include a companion disc of remixes and reinterpretations from such luminaries as Thom Yorke, Alan Vega, Tunde Adebimpe (TV On the Radio), and Bradford Cox (Deerhunter/Atlas Sound). On his band's foray into the world of remixing, frontman Angus Andrew said, “We wanted to help develop and expand the role of the remix, particularly to engage artists less acknowledged for their work in the field. They were asked to 're-interpret' the song by any means necessary and the result is definitely the most exciting collaborative effort we've been involved in.” The LA-based trio has also announced a tour of North America in support of their new record, which comes out March 9. Check out the dates below.
