The Liars Club
Moving between the darkest nooks of Barrow-in-Furness’ grotspots, from their den above the High Street record shop, childhood friends Noah Johnson (vocals), Daniel Milmine (Guitar), Matt Southwell (Drums) and Frank Kendall (Bass) unleash mercilessly energetic swathes of brutally honest, new age punk from the humdrum of their hometown. “Barrow made us, so we don’t hate it; we deal with it,” Noah says. “We’re just four working class lads making an honest living in ‘the man’ industries which fund many lives in our town, but as soon as we’re on stage we become what we want to be… we’re accomplishing our dreams.”
Harbingers of an ethos akin to All is Love of fellow proto-punks Idles and as combustible as 1970s punk-rock heroes The Ruts, The Liars Club pull positivity from bleak corners and have awakened audiences across Manchester and Scotland, Fudstock and Kendal Calling.
Joining forces with producer Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Goldblade, The Blinders), debut EP Dormant takes a unique view of the world whether tackling austerity, physical and mental abuse in relationships or “the never-ending repetition of culturalism in modern day society.”
“The Liars Club is not a place of violence or hate; it’s a haven for people to come to. We are theirs and they are ours,” they say. Regardless of where you’re from, The Liars Club welcomes everyone. No need to present a member’s card at the door, just prepare to have your pants set on fire.
