Liars announce new LP ‘Titles With The Word Fountain,’ share “Murdrum”
Liars are back with a new album, titled Titles With The Word Fountain, which will be out via Mute on September 21 on cassette and digitally, and November 2 on vinyl. The 17 songs on the LP were recorded during the same sessions as last year's TFCF, but main man Angus Andrew doesn't see it as leftovers. "To me it’s more like a sequel. I chose the songs that appear on TFCF based on how well they addressed the trauma of a failed creative relationship," Angus says, referencing the amicable departure of Aaron Hemphill from the group. "Whereas the material on Titles With The Word Fountain is more playful despite revolving around the same sentiments." Angus also says "There was a lot of pressure in producing TFCF as it was guaranteed to be framed by the lack of band members. With Titles With The Word Fountain I felt stripped of that burden and more free to include work that could be construed as unclear or abstract."
The first single is "Murdrum" which manages to be both pretty but also pack that brooding intensity Liars are known for. You can listen to that, and check out the album art and tracklist, below.
Liars have a few Australian tour dates in September, and those are listed below. If you need more Liars, they've also got a split 7" with fellow Aussies Tropical Fuck Storm out in September as well.
