Liars to open for Radiohead
Thom Yorke was lauding the Liars back in his February interview on NPR's All Songs Considered, so it should come as no surprise that the band is coming aboard Radiohead's summer tour. The experimental rock band has been around since the early part of the decade, spending time working on their sound on both coasts (primarily NYC), as well as Germany.
Drum's Not Dead is their third album and the one that I first heard; coming in as the 6th best album from 2006 by the venerable Pitchfork (just getting edged out by Ghostface Killah ain't so bad).
