Liars has returned with new music along with news regarding who they work with behind the scenes. Liars announced that they would be parting ways with Aaron Hemphill in a amicable split. This is not the first time an artist has chosen to part ways with someone on their team. It most likely will not be the last time something like this happens.
Looking for new ways to introduce their album to hungry fans, Liars has released a 5 song playlist on Youtube titled TFCF. With Youtube being a popular choice for how people consume music this is sure to reach many of Liar’s fans who have been waiting for a new album.
Argus had this to say about the upcoming release, “My favorite 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.”
Liars was formed in 2000 and consists of Angus Andrews on the guitar and as lead vocalist, and Julian Gross playing the drums, as well as former group member Aaron Hemphill who was also played the guitar. The group, like many others, have went through their moments of sonic growth finally appearing to settle in the punk rock and electronic area.
The group will be going on tour later this year performing across the world starting in London, England and ending in Brooklyn, New York.
