LIARS start their tour this weekend with a show at The Met in New York and announce a very special surprise: two brand new tracks – ‘I Saw You From The Lifeboat’ and ‘Perfume Tear’ – and a film available as a free download. ‘I Saw You From The Lifeboat’ is accompanied by a unique film, which was created by the band, documenting the past few years and offering a rare insight into the life of Liars.
To download the free tracks, (see above) where you can watch the video for ‘I Saw You From The Lifeboat’, and follow the links to the downloads. Everyone that receives the download will be entered into a draw to win a piece of original artwork created by Liars.
Explains Angus, “After releasing WIXIW and returning home from touring there was a palpable sense of creative relief and release. We relished in the opportunity to make stuff under no real directive and began almost immediately to produce all kinds of unrelated works. It’s a great position to be in creatively so we decided to share a small portion of the results with you today. Both of these songs happened almost instantly, and, in sharp contrast to the music we produced for WIXIW, were not labored over or scrutinized. It’s been great for us to recall the immediacy and excitement of creating music on the fly – unrestricted by subject matter and void of preoccupations about how it should ‘work’ in the greater context of things.”
