LIARS announce a London show at 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Thursday 27th May 2010.

Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross return in 2010 with their boldest and most exhilarating record to date. Sisterworld – out 8th March 2010 – was written and recorded in Los Angeles by Liars and Tom Biller and is an invigorating summation of their career so far, a dense art-pop thrill from start to finish.

Featuring the forthcoming single, Scissor, Sisterworld will be available on CD, vinyl and a 2xCD version will feature remixes and reinterpretations of all 11 tracks from artists including Thom Yorke, Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Bradford Cox (Deerhunter / Atlas Sound), Melvins, Alan Vega (Suicide), Chris & Cosey (Throbbing Gristle) and Blonde Redhead. Full tracklisting to follow…

Says Angus Andrew, “On this project we wanted to help develop and expand the role of the remix, particularly to engage artists less acknowledged for their work in the field. They were asked to 're-interpret' the song by any means necessary and the result is definitely the most exciting collaborative effort we've been involved in.”

Sisterworld is Liars’ own space, completely devoid of influence, somewhere
remote from the false promises and discarded dreams amassed in LA. In it Liars explore the underground support systems created to deal with loss of self to society.

After a sold out show at The Luminaire in January, MEMORY TAPES is back to play at Cargo. A one man band based in New Jersey, he's been dropping bombs (as memory cassette and weird tapes) on Gorilla vs Bear through 2008 to huge acclaim and massive blog proliferation. His sound is nostalgic both aesthetically and emotionally – so there is little surprise when comparisons drift to outfits such as Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, New Order and Boards of Canada. More established pop references come through as well with echoes of classic Motown and girl groups. After the great reception that greeted his debut album, the ever prolific, MEMORY TAPES intends to make two albums a year, promising that the next one will a psychedelic girl group record…
