Barrow-in-Furness-based punks The Liars Club are pleased to present the video for their new single ‘Tutankhamun’. A sideways look at the widespread tyranny that exists within human power structures, the track was released on 21st May 2021.
The single is the second to be taken from their forthcoming new EP Of Self, which will be released on 18th June 2021 via Neoprima Music.
Commenting on the themes behind the track, the band said: “Tutankhamun’ is a brutal look at ruthless leaders on a broad spectrum. It takes ideologies and tyrannical occurrences to a face-value and over-exaggerated standpoint, labelling them as they are and not what they seem to be. Stopping at nothing, the protagonist in the lyrics will do anything to make himself more powerful, ruling ‘I’ll kill your husband if it means that you’ll abide’. It’s a clear over-exaggeration, with a hint of an almost numbing feeling towards the consequences of his actions.”
The single comes accompanied with a chaotic live video that gives a thrilling insight into what a live show from The Liars Club might look and feel like when venue doors are once again thrown open.
“The video is compiled from footage of our last hometown gig at Barrow Underground Music Society (affectionately known as BUMS),” say the band. “All the footage was taken by a fan in the audience and edited by film maker Reco Real.”
It’s a typical example of The Liars Club’s high energy live performances which often see their vocalist, Noah Johnson, take his intense energy into the mosh pit to engage with the audience.
“It always stirs a great response where the audience becomes totally connected with the band,” they say. “Noah’s random ventures off stage can happen at any time and create a great sense of euphoria within the crowd. This can cause a shock when, on rare occasions, first timers to a ‘Liars’ gig experience Noah’s crowd visit on the very first song…”
The track was also added to the X-Posure playlist on Radio X, picking up further spins from Jack Saunders at BBC Radio 1, Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music, entering rotation at Amazing Radio, and support from Total Rock, Hard Rock Hell Radio, and more.
