The trio comprising Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross, have recently announced the title and release date for the album. WIXIW will be released on June 4th in Europe and June 5th in the US via Mute.
According to the press release, WIXIW “saw the band working more collaboratively than on previous recordings, and began when Angus Andrew and Aaron Hemphill moved into an isolated cabin in the mountains to begin writing.”
Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by the band and Mute’s Daniel Miller, WIXIW “is hard to shake, tough to pin down, and impossible to get out of one’s head even after an initial listen. Simultaneously the most accessible and most challenging release from these iconoclasts, it is both a summation of Liars’ work up to now, and a complete break from anything you’d ever heard the band do previously.”
Earlier today, the threesome shared ‘No. 1 Against The Rush’, the first single off the forthcoming album. You can listen to it on their facebook or check it out below. You can also check the trailer for WIXIW.
