Tenebrous Liar release ‘Alienation’ EP plus live appearances

To mark the release, the band also unveiled one of the featured tracks of the new EP: ‘Swing’, with an accompanying video available to watch here:

Capturing the raw, unadulterated furore of a Tenebrous Liar live show, the ‘Swing’ video was shot by Curtis Gullick at the scene of the band’s favourite show to date; a unique performance at the abandoned offices of the Coventry Evening Telegraph in December 2017.

‘Swing’ itself, is just one of many prime cuts set to appear on the exhilarating ‘Alienation’ EP released via the Straight Lines Are Fine Label on 9th February 2018. The single sits aside 5 new tracks, plus fan favourite ‘Alienation’ (which also featured on the band’s recently re-issued 2017 album: ‘The Cut’). Diverse, daring and eclectic in nature, this latest collection from Tenebrous Liar showcases their genre defying sound and ambition in overdrive.

Tenebrous Liar is the alias of acclaimed rock photographer Steve Gullick. Scratching a long felt itch, Gullick founded the project in 2005 and following a purge of frantic, genre-bending experimentations, he released his debut album ‘Tenebrous’ the following year on Fire records.

Recognising he required the assistance of a full band to express his live vision, Gullick soon began to enlist an eclectic & ever evolving line-up of friends for his subsequent outings as Tenebrous Liar. Creating a further five albums under the moniker in as many years, the project has also seen Gullick perform with a diverse selection of artists since its genesis, including: Scout Niblett, Josh T. Pearson, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Foo Fighters, Duke Garwood, Oxbow, Soulsavers, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Ed Harcourt & Cindytalk.

After a 5-year studio hiatus, Tenebrous Liar returned in 2017 with eighth LP ‘The Cut’ released on the Straight Lines Are Fine label and now available on CD, LP and digitally.

On February 16th and 17th, Tenebrous Liar teamed up with Piano Wire and Horseflies at Paper Dress Vintage in Hackney and The Tin in Coventry the following night, as they repeated the raucous shows they played together over the last year.

Tenebrous Liar are:
Steve Gullick (Guitar, Vocals), Brendan Casey (Bass), Ben Edgar (Drums)

This lavishly photographed book is very seductive.
