Directed by esteemed rock photographer, videographer and mastermind of Tenebrous Liar, Steve Gullick, the ‘Alienation’ video is an unsettling collage of surrealist images and fragmented glimpses of the band’s uninhibited live performances.
For this video, Gullick fittingly drew inspiration from the sense of paranoia and claustrophobia evoked by the wooded environs that form the chilling backdrops of Twin Peaks and Blair Witch Project.
Musically, ‘Alienation’ is prime example of Tenebrous Liar’s genre-defying sound. The track is taken from the band’s latest LP: ‘The Cut’, their first full length album in 5 years, which receives its full release on the Straight Lines Are Fine label on 15th December 2017 (available on CD, vinyl, and digitally).
To launch the release Tenebrous Liar will be previewing their latest material with a special one-off headline performance at the abandoned former offices of the Coventry Evening Telegraph, Coventry on 2nd December 2017. The night will see a selection of Gullick’s own photographs that feature within the artwork for ‘The Cut’ exhibited on the walls as part of the event. An innovative art installation comprising projections of still shots combined with moving images will also feature as part of this unmissable performance.
Support comes form krautrock stoner rock outfit, Black Helium who will perform their Coventry debut on the night, plus one of the city’s finest new attractions: Fütumche.
In other news, on February 16th, tenebrous LIAR are teaming up with Piano Wire and Horseflies at Hackney’s Paper Dress Vintage, London, for a repeat of the raucous shows they played together earlier this year. Tickets available here.
Tenebrous Liar is the alias of acclaimed rock photographer Steve Gullick. Scratching a long felt musical itch, Gullick founded the project in 2005 and following a purge of frantic, genre-bending experimentations, he released his debut album ‘Tenebrous’ the following year on Fire records.
Recognising he required the assistance of a full band to express his visions on the live stage, Gullick soon began to enlist an eclectic & ever evolving line-up of friends for his subsequent outings as Tenebrous Liar. Creating a further five albums under the moniker in as many years, the project has also seen Gullick perform with a diverse selection of artists since its genesis, including: Scout Niblett, Josh T. Pearson, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Foo Fighters, Duke Garwood, Oxbow, Soulsavers, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Ed Harcourt & Cindytalk.
After a 5 year studio hiatus, Tenebrous Liar return in 2017 with 8th LP ‘The Cut’, to be released on the Straight Lines Are Fine label.
Tenebrous Liar are:
Steve Gullick (Guitar, Vocals), Brendan Casey (Bass), Ben Edgar (Drums)
