Liars – “Coins in My Caged Fist” and “The Grand Delusional”

Ahead of the release of their eight album TFCF August 25, art-punk lifers Liars released two tracks from the record today. The first of these, “Coins In My Caged Fist,” is harsh and dissonant, riding a stuttering drum loop and staccato synth bass line. The second “The Grand Delusional,” explores the band’s tender side, wth dubby acoustic guitar and a restrained vocal from Liars mastermind Angus Andrew. Following the departure of co-founder Aaron Hemphill after last year’s dense and clubby Mess, Liars is now essentially Andrew’s solo project, and the new tracks reflect that new insularity. Hear them below, and listen to first single “Cred Woes” here.

The band also released world tour dates today, beginning with a stop in London’s VISIONS Festival Saturday.
