Drum’s Not Dead is the next instalment of the Liars’ reissue series, where every two months an album from the back catalogue is being released on recycled coloured vinyl.

Originally released in 2006, Drum’s Not Dead is Liars’ third album, following up 2004’s They Were Wrong, So We Drowned. Once again the album shattered all past reference points and preconceptions of Liars. Partly inspired by a relocation from New York to Berlin, the album finds Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross taking another seismic step forward, switching continents and seizing new musical territory.

The album’s title and several track names refer to two fictional characters: Drum and Mount Heart Attack. For the band they are like Yin and Yang, each a state of being. Drum is assertive and productive, the spirit of creative confidence. With two drum kits integral to many of these percussive, propulsive, highly rhythmic convulsions, Drum came to be acknowledged as a fourth member of the band. Conversely, Mount Heart Attack is the reaction to Drum’s action, the embodiment of stress and self-doubt. Both became key elements in the creative process.

“Liars have had the last laugh: Drum's Not Dead is a majestic victory lap, and on all levels, a total f**king triumph.” - Pitchfork

“Liars have achieved a captivating level of sonic brilliance that deserves to be listened as an entity and not in scant sessions of personal musical ambivalence.” - Treble

“...Liars have delivered just what you need...even if you don't realize it yet.” - Tiny Mix Tapes

Available on recycled coloured vinyl.
