Seventh album features "Mess On A Mission"

180-gram gatefold double LP includes album CD

Liars were conceived in November 2000 after two friends and ex-Los Angeles art students, Aaron Hemphill and Angus Andrew, reunited in New York City. They responded to a "musicians wanted" ad posted in a local record store by two Nebraskans, Pat Noecker and Ron Albertson. The lurching Aussie Andrew took on the vocal/frontman duties while Hemphill became their guitarist and drum machine programmer. Bassist Noecker and drummer Albertson make up the Liars rhythm section.

Mess is Liars seventh album. This follow up to 2012's WIXIW is an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic synth-rock that sacrifices self-persecution for potent, purposeful abandon. Liars' career has seen the band rattle through pigeonholes in an attempt to avoid them all together: brittle yet taught punk funk; liminal no-wave; ecstatic noise-pop; 21st-century garage rock; post-millennial post-rock; delicate electronics; reaching here, where Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross now find themselves.
