Liar Thief Bandit will release their third album ”Deadlights” on May 14, 2021. The album contains 12 tracks of modern-sounding and forward-thinking Scandinavian garage rock and will be released on digital, vinyl, and CD format. Liar Thief Bandit effortlessly blends smooth guitar licks, infectious hooks, and uplifting lyrics with a ton of live-rock energy, creating an album that easily would pass for a best-of collection of singles. Recorded in Tambourine Studios, who launched the career of The Cardigans among others, and produced by Erik Sunding, who’s been the engineer/producer for bands such as Terrible Feelings and Bob Hund. The production on ”Deadlights” is spotless, taking the spirit of Garage rock revival to a completely new level. Deadlights is released on The Sign Records, who’ve previously worked with Liar Thief Bandit for the release of the band’s 2019 7” split single ”Virtue Not a Vice / Saved by Rock n Roll” together with Grande Royale. Nothing can stop Liar Thief Bandit - get ready.
Biography:shows, the defining journey took off in late 2016 when the self-produced debut album “Gun Shovel Alibi” was released. Extensive touring followed and the band’s DIY-ethics brought them to numerous European countries during 2017. Their lightening, energetic live show caught attention and left the audience wanting more. The hectic tour schedule influenced the three-piece to write, record, and deliver their sophomore epos “Straight Ahead” released in august 2018 quickly followed by three European tours putting Liar Thief Bandit on the map as a hard-working rock’n’roll band to reckon with. With new songs in the making, May 2019 saw the trio doing their 100th show in Hamburg as the premiere of an 18-day tour through Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Poland, and the Czech Republic. The coming fall saw a split 7” vinyl with Grande Royale released on the Sign Records and a joint tour through Germany and Switzerland supporting the double A-side single. The track “Virtue Not a Vice” left no one doubting the power of innovating riffs and rememberable melodies that makes Liar Thief Bandit stand out in the current rock atmosphere. The third full-length was recorded during the spring of 2020 in Malmö’s Tambourine Studios inspired by hardships in a hard-working touring band as well as complicated situations in life. The theme throughout the 12 songs touches on philosophies of picking yourself up, taking chances, and facing obstacles with a positive state of mind. “Deadlights” will be released in 2021 on The Sign Records.
