Liars Overview


Liars is a three-piece band formed in 2000 consisting of Angus Andrew (vocals/guitar), Aaron Hemphill (percussion, guitar, synth), and Julian Gross (drums). Although initially lumped into the New York dance-punk scene of the early 21st century, they have come to be categorized by their dramatic stylistic shifts between albums, while retaining a consistent interest in rhythm and sound texture.

Sisterworld (2010) Liars (2007) Drum's Not Dead (2006) They Were Wrong, So We Drowned (2004) They Threw Us All In A Trench And Stuck A Monument On Top (2001)
