Liars Reveal Reissue Series On Recycled Vinyl

The series kicks off this July with the band's debut album, 'They Threw Us All In A Trench And Stuck A Monument On Top'

Liars have revealed plans to reissue much of their back catalogue on limited edition recycled vinyl.

The series of reissues will launch this July with the band’s 2001 debut album, They Threw Us All In A Trench And Stuck A Monument On Top, set to be re-released. The record was originally released in the US only, and predated their signing to Mute. To mark the album’s reissue, a new video for the track ‘Mr Your On Fire Mr’ has been unveiled, and can be watched above.

Speaking about the plans to use recycled vinyl, Liars’ remaining original member Angus Andrew said in a statement: "We all feel the weight of the waste we’re creating so any occasion to lessen that load is welcome, but I also relish the opportunity to utilise the offcuts from other people’s vinyl, having that melted down and re-appropriated just makes so much sense to me and the process of creation. It feels like the sweat and tears from every other artist’s work is blended into ours – imbuing the recycled vinyl with supernatural integrity and power."

Mute will release They Threw Us All In A Trench And Stuck A Monument On Top on July 22, 2022.
