In addition to their new video, Liars will be playing two New York dates, one of which will take place at The Temple of Dendur in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is one of the best ideas I've ever heard and apparently it's all part of an exhibit dubbed PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The show is unfortunately sold out, but nevertheless, information on the event is available below.
The video and all links and info were provided by Mute.
This past June Liars released their sixth studio album, WIXIW, along with a string of remixes and videos for their singles “No.1 Against the Rush” and “Brats”.
Today they unveil the NEW video for “WIXIW”directed by the Los Angeles-based artist Alex/2Tone. Unsettling and captivating the video for “WIXIW” has a momentum indicative of the album as a whole, moving, shifting, twisting and turning, but with no limit, no end and no beginning. Realizing the track’s agitated state, Alex/2Tone drew from the past while incorporating the bands love for basketball, calling the finished product “the legend of Sisyphus as told by a young ballplayer lost in a haze of codeine and prescription weed”.
