Charming Liars have released their highly anticipated new album, Tourniquet today. Featuring previous singles, “LEFT BEHIND” and “WRECK IT ALL” as well as new single, “HIGH”, the album can be heard now below.
The band said of the release, “The year we made “Tourniquet” was one of the toughest years we’d faced as a band. Vocalist Kiliyan experienced some big losses and that really inspired some of the deeper tracks on this record. It gave him a chance to grieve and a chance to disarm what was happening around him. Within its cocoon of heavy alt-wave synth and anthemic choruses, you’ll find lyrics that highlight the highs and the lows of a very rough year.”
About “HIGH,” Kiliyan added, “Our new single ‘High’ takes a deep look at loss through rose colored glasses. It celebrates the ghosts of our past and the memories they still exist in.”
Prior to the album release, Charming Liars previously shared two new videos from their “Live Sounds of 2020” series: “Falling” and “Disco Elvis.” The performances were filmed in late 2020 in a warehouse in Los Angeles – the first time the band performed together after the pandemic put an indefinite halt to live music. Charming Liars made their return to the stage earlier this year with The Struts, and can be seen on tour now in the UK with Palaye Royale. The band will also be supporting White Lies in the EU later this spring.
