Liars Announce US Tour Dates





Thom York and Trent Reznor are among the converted.  Wayne Coyne may need holy intervention to put a stop to the head-spinning and pea soup heaving.  Liars are coming. In support of their latest full-length release, They Were Wrong, So We Drowned, the post-punk, electronic rock experiment known as Liars are set to begin a US slate of live musical stylings.  The New York-based trio bring with them a punishing mixture of synthetic sound, thumping drumb beats and chaotic vocals that sent Flaming Lips frontman Coyne on a holy (unholy?) rant.
 
"To witness and behold the Liars is to once again be reminded of the power of possession. These fuckers are unexcorsizable," Coyne offered along with comparisons to The Butthole Surfers and Nick Cave after seeing them in April 2004. "Liars expose the beast within all civilized humans. We are repulsed yet hypnotized! We are skeletons watching the strip tease...."
 
Yes, Wayne, we are.
