Video for “I Saw You From The Lifeboat”
Everyone that receives the download will be entered into a draw to win a piece of original artwork created by Liars.
The two tracks are solitary from any album, simply a freedom of the bands creativity. Explains Angus, “After releasing WIXIW and returning home from touring there was a palpable sense of creative relief and release. We relished in the opportunity to make stuff under no real directive and began almost immediately to produce all kinds of unrelated works. It’s a great position to be in creatively so we decided to share a small portion of the results with you today. Both of these songs happened almost instantly, and, in sharp contrast to the music we produced for WIXIW, were not labored over or scrutinized. It’s been great for us to recall the immediacy and excitement of creating music on the fly - unrestricted by subject matter and void of preoccupations about how it should 'work' in the greater context of things.”
Following their New York shows, the trio heads over seas for a two week European tour, including stops at Primavera, Sonar, Manchester Parklife & Brighton Festivals.
