Liars will be returning to their hometown, and the birthplace of their latest album, “Sisterworld,” on 12/3, playing a show at TheSex, with High Places and John Wiese.
The noise rock band have been touring the US and Canada non stop since April 2010, and are now ready to complete their victory lap. The band’s ties to L.A. are a very important aspect of their music, especially on “Sisterworld,” and their “Proud Evolution” EP, which makes this last show of the tour especially relevant.
“The idea of a ‘proud evolution’—you’re being confident in all the decisions that your society has made and set up, and often it’s something that we boast about in the sense of developments,” says frontman Angus Andrew in a conversation with Interview. “Those kinds of things don’t always involve everybody, and it’s the people who are left out of that [who are] interesting to me, the most evident example in Los Angeles being the homeless people. The city is a very proud place and a very global city, but has this kind of armpit stain it doesn’t want to talk about.”
“Sisterworld” has proven to be another key record in their repertoire, with its progression into Nick Cave style swamp rock. Liars had another other big score this year was their contributions to Beck’s arguably best installment of his Record Club series, a track for track recreation of the INXS album, “Kick.” It’s unlikely that the band will add “Need You Tonight” to their L.A. show’s set, but one can dream.
