LIARS are following up the acclaimed WIXIW which as been described as poised and fragile with Mess which their label, Mute, describe as “Liars with their balls out – an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics that sacrifices self persecution for potent, purposeful abandon.”

The new album is due out on 25 March 2014. It’s produced by Angus Andrew and mixed by Timothy “Q” Wiles (whose previous production credits include label-mates VCMG), the new album is less concerned with place as on previous albums, but sees the band back in their own studio in LA.
Angus said of the new record, “We are a reactionary, or maybe a better word is schizophrenic band. We go from one extreme to the other. Working on the last record was really doubtful and paranoid, and that’s fine, but it just meant that when work started on this one, it was the exact opposite. It was way more instinctual, fun and confident.”
Mess will be released on CD, double vinyl and download. Watch the album trailer here and check the tracklisting below.
