Hometown: Los Angeles, CA (USA)

About:

Liars is a three-piece American band consisting of Aaron Hemphill (percussion, guitar, synth), Julian Gross (drums) and Philippine-born Angus Andrew (vocals/guitar). Although initially lumped into the New York post-punk revival scene of the early 21st century, they have come to be categorized by their dramatic stylistic shifts between albums, while retaining a consistent interest in rhythm and sound texture.
