Now that the three members in Liars have released an album on Mute that blasted through all conventions of the puzzling art-rock genre and been around the U.S. supporting, uh, Interpol, they are ready for their own headlining tour, scheduled to begin early next year.
If the aforementioned tour with Interpol was, as Liars frontman Angus Andrew described, a "mind-blowing orgy of music and memories," then this new set of dates, for which the band has invited L.A.-based rockers No Age along, should have both performers and audience members figuratively (or maybe even literally) bouncing off the walls and reminiscing for months to come. Says Andrew: "In all, I anticipate the whole tour being shambolic, psychotic, and historic. A winter wonderland of weirdo rockers."
Check the band's recently released fourth full-length, Liars, for inspiration, or go to the band's site to download a free four-track EP. Nice!
