Published Mar 26, 2012Earlier this month, we learned through some arty, electro-scored videos that Liars were in the midst of prepping a new LP, their first since 2010's Sisterworld, but the trio were keeping things fairly cryptic. It looks as if the outfit are going to keep playing things mysteriously by revealing info about the album piecemeal, but we now have a confirmed street date for the disc: June 5.
A press release for the as-yet-unnamed LP, which will be release through the band's longtime label Mute, explains that recording sessions took place in Los Angeles. Technically, the collection is self-produced by the group, but they did get some extra assistance from Daniel Miller, and it was mixed by Tom Biller.
Despite the snippets of sound we've got from the video teasers, a proper single has yet to be delivered. But Liars' new tunes are said to be the product of collaborations started when band founders Aaron Hemphill and Angus Andrew moved into an isolated cabin in the mountains to begin writing.
Having toyed with elements of no wave, drone and pop over their career, Liars' next LP reportedly is a forward-thinking amalgam of past and future, and is being described as the "most accessible and most challenging release from these iconoclasts."
"If we aren't confusing people, it's not us," Andrew said in a statement. "If we aren't confusing ourselves with what we do, then we've failed."
More info about the album is expected to be revealed in the months leading up to the June release date.
