were telling the truth when they, well, they posted a mysterious website
which seemed to suggest a new album (we mentioned
this on Monday). Today they confirmed it; Sisterworld
will be the bands latest full length studio album.
The record was written and record in LA by Liars and Tom Biller (Kanye West, Beck, Where The Wild Things Are / Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind soundtracks), marking this the first Liars record recorded entirely in the US since 2004. The trio are said to be exploring LA; via subcultures and alternate spaces generated by fringe characters. Says the band:
"We're interested in the alternate spaces people create in order to maintain identity in a city like LA. Environments where outcasts and loners celebrate a skewered relationship to society." - Liars
is a place entirely foreign, said to be "remote from the false promises and discarded dreams amassed in LA." If the strange sound-scapes presented on the website have any indication, it is either going to be an album of outside noises, or an existential trip requiring a lot of
open mindedness to appreciate. Or both!
is out in 2010 on Mute
