The fourth Tenebrous Liar album to be produced by acclaimed musician & songwriter Richard Warren (kind of like Nick Lowe to TL's Damned) This new collection of songs finds the group on the quest to create melodic edgy pop songs but without compromising their unique & ear splitting ferocity & lyrical tenacity, the record may even be an attempt to fuse Big Star's 'Sister Lovers' with Earth's 'Earth 2" or The Velvet Underground's 'White Light White Heat' with Elvis Presley's 'King Creole'.
Last years 'Run Run Run' album was described by Artrocker as sounding like 'The Sex Pistols stuck in a Swamp' - a better simile we cannot present. Tenebrous Liar have steadily been building a strong live reputation, no doubt aided by prestigious support shows with acts as diverse as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Oxbow, Soulsavers featuring Mark Lanegan, Cindytalk, Magic Numbers, Josh T. Pearson, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Icarus Line & Foo Fighters.
tenebrous definitions -
'bomberhead' - the sound of your apocalypse.
'expired' - rejection & the coping with the inevitability of loss.
'end of the road' - love song for a decaying nation.
'run run run' - when you dream you're falling only to wake up drowning.
'erase the days' - trying to clear the mind of hate but failing badly.
'burn on a sunday' - watching a friend destroy themselves but being too self involved to realise.
'get back' - knowing you're beaten but not knowing how to surrender.
'sleep' - one last breath & beyond
'pieces for you' - remorse encore
This is the sound of a band imploding, freezing, near to death.
