Listen To The Lies


Midlands rockers announce new shows and new video


Liberty Lies are pleased to share their latest single ‘Are You Listening?’ The news comes as the band announce their November 2016 tour supporting Saliva, SOiL and Sons Of Texas. 

After previously releasing two EPs and having played with the likes of: Max Raptor, Alien Ant Farm, Rival Sons, GUN, Press To Meco and many more, the new single ‘Are You Listening?’ from West Midlands five piece Liberty Lies, is a statement of intent. Not only have the band previously toured with the likes of Shinedown, Halestorm and Magnum across the UK and Europe, but their latest efforts have also earned them a spot on a UK tour with Saliva, SOiL and Sons of Texas this November, alongside appearances at a number of summer festivals including Fort Fest.

Recorded with Romesh Dodangoda (Sylosis, FFAF, Bring Me The Horizon, Motorhead and more), the latest single solidifies any prior notions that they might be ‘ones to watch’. ‘Are You Listening?’ merges nu-metal tinted guitars and distorted bass with prog-infused vocals, which at times call to mind the sound of Protest The Hero. Elsewhere you can hear nods to the bands many other influences with driven instrumental sections and powerful screaming sections that could feel at home in a letlive song, this is supplemented by melodic phrasing which is redolent of Alter Bridge, or at times, even Fair To Midland. It’s clear that the band are more than capable of taking the essence of the bands that they love and distilling it into their own brand of alternative rock.

Speaking about the new single, drummer Adam Stevens said, “This is our heaviest song to date, and the one that we are most proud of. We’ve managed to find the sound that we have been trying to capture for years. The song was born out of frustration in the practice room and with the industry itself.”

Every one of the bands releases to date has seen Liberty Lies move from strength-to-strength, and with live dates and tours increasingly seeing the band set alongside reputable names from the rock and metal scene, it is clear they are making a lasting impression. ‘Are You Listening?’ is a statement of intent, that even after two previous release and huge back-catalogue of live performances, Liberty Lies are only just beginning to make their mark.Are you listening? Because you should be.
