Building on the success of last year’s Wyoming, Water Liars has returned with their third full-length. The self-titled release maintains the band’s raw aesthetic, emphasizing their evolution since Wyoming without feeling over-produced or manufactured.

Finding art in contradiction, Water Liars combines violent, vivid lyrics with sentimental undertones, making for a rough yet deeply moving collection of songs that not only make for great listening, but incite a kind of curiosity in the listener that can only be attributed to this multi-dimentional lyricism.

To celebrate the release of Water Liars, the band has release a music video for standout track “I Want Blood.” Watch the video in the player below. Water Liars is out today via Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess. You can order the album here and view their upcoming tour dates at the bottom of the page.
