After hinting at some new music through cryptic messages a little while back, Liars have announced details of their upcoming new album.
‘TFCF’ (which stands for ‘Theme From Crying Fountain’) will be out on 25th August and it’ll be both their first album since ‘Mess’ and since Aaron Hemphill left the band. Angus Andrew is now the sole member, and he decamped to a remote part of the Australian bush to create what promises to be a very different album to what they’d attempted before.
Speaking of the process of recording the album, Angus said: “A lot of the sounds I was working on were samples, they lived inside my computer, but I still wanted to have a connection with everything around me. So everything I was recording was in context of the world outside the studio… Sometimes I’d have my headphones on, just listening to the bush, and a bird would fly up and scream into the microphone. The truth is, even in New York or LA, I was still pretty isolated. Here, there are no other people around, but I feel much more connected to the environment around me than in a big city”.
