SUMMER TOUR UNDERWAY

'MOON OVER MADISON' 7-INCH OUT AUGUST 6TH, 2013

SOPHOMORE ALBUM WYOMING IN STORES NOW
VIA BIG LEGAL MESS/FAT POSSUM

Water Liars premiered the video for "Wyoming," the first off their sophomore album of the same name on SPIN.com. Directed by Zia Anger and Ashley Connor (Angel Olsen), the "quietly despairing"  Wyoming, which has been praised by ALL MUSIC GUIDE, ALTERNATIVE PRESS, AMERICAN SONGWRITER, CMJ, MTV HIVE, THE NEW YORK TIMES, and PENTHOUSE, among others, was released on March 5th, 2013 via Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum.

Water Liars - whose recent live sessions with Baeble Music, Daytrotter, and HearYa debuted online over the past two weeks - will also next release a 7-inch single, 'Moon Over Madison,' on August 6th, 2013. The single features the title-track Hasil Adkins cover and new original "The Turnaround" as a B-side, and is available for pre-order here: http://fatpossum.com/products/moon-over-madison-7.

The Mississippi-based duo of Justin Kinkel-Schuster and Andrew Bryant (with touring bassist GR Robinson in tow) are currently a week into their June tour, playing tonight at Last Exit Live in Phoenix, AZ. The tour will take Water Liars throughout the western US - including two Los Angeles shows this weekend - before winding them back south to wrap up on June 29th at Nightbird Books in Fayetteville, AR. The band will also perform a handful of dates in the southeast in late July and mid-August before traveling to Raleigh, NC for the Hopscotch Music Festival September 5-7th. A current itinerary is below.

Recorded in their now-hometown of Water Valley in late September, Wyoming is Water Liars' second LP released in just under a year. At the core of the album are stories of specific, intimate moments that can't help but ring universally true. The band favors simplicity and ample space in their songs, while Kinkel-Schuster's clear, plaintive vocals add to Wyoming's warm yet heartsick expanse. The album ranges musically from contemplative, bluesy waltzes ("Backbone") to lonely, tempered howls ("Fake Heat"); from soulful, heartached swings ("Cut A Line," "You Work Days I Work Nights") to upbeat, but wistful resignations ("Linens").  These 11 uncluttered songs resonate all the way from the breezy, buzzing opener "Sucker" to the closing feedback of "Fire."
