Liars Announce UK & European Autumn 2012 Tour

Liars Announce UK & European Autumn 2012 Tour

Liars - Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross - announce a UK & European tour in October including London's Scala on 16th October. The dates follow an incredible run of dates around the release of 'WIXIW' that saw Liars play a series of intimate shows, including Field Day and a riotous sold out XOYO

The October UK tour sees Liars performing as a three-piece, and follows the release of their critically acclaimed sixth studio album, 'WIXIW' (pronounced "wish you"), the follow up to 'Sisterworld' (#9 in the NME's Albums of the Year 2010). The band then return to Europe for a tour that includes Pitchfork's Parisian festival on 3 November. Full dates below, on sale from Wednesday 20 June.

'WIXIX' was recorded in LA, self-produced by the band with additional production from Daniel Miller and mixed by Tom Biller. It's an album that is hard to shake, tough to pin down, and impossible to get out of one's head even after an initial listen. Simultaneously the most accessible and most challenging release from these iconoclasts, it is both a summation of Liars' work up to now, and a complete break from anything you'd ever heard the band do previously.
