Earlier this year, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers released their new album Nightroamer, and now Sarah has announced their debut solo album, Cruel Liars, under the moniker Mightmare (out October 14 via Kill Rock Stars). Sarah singlehandedly wrote, produced, and engineered Cruel Liars, allowing the project to consume them at the start of the pandemic (freshly sober, no less). Sarah says:

I created my solo project Mightmare and leaned into it obsessively for the first year of the pandemic and out of that manic fixation came Cruel Liars. I put every cell and strand of my being in this album, I'm proud of it for its brightest moments and its glaring imperfections, for its darkness and its quiet hand guiding me to zeniths of personal truths.

"Saturn Turns," the lead single to Cruel Liars, is out now, with a companion music video featuring Sarah on an endless road, questioning their sense of direction--pairing well with the song's distorted guitar and cinematic lyrics. Watch below, and check out the album art for Cruel Liars. You can pre-order the album here.

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers also have a ton of upcoming tour dates, including their rescheduled East Coast run that hits NYC on November 3 at TV Eye in Ridgewood, Queens. They also play NJ's XPoNential Music Festival and New Haven, CT, on November 10 at Cafe Nine. All dates below.
