Liberty Lies are an Alternative Rock Band from The Black Country.
Formed as teenagers in 2008, the band was created by Shaun, Josh & Adam as an outlet to try their hand at writing original material. With a developing local fan base, the band released their first EP New Addiction ͛in 2010.
Produced by Mark Stuart (Magnum, Thin Lizzy, Diamond Head), the four track was ladened with intent but held a strong classic rock vibe. As the band matured, so did the sound and the song writing prowess. 2012 saw the quintet head out on their first UK & European tour with Shinedown & Halestorm.
Their Influences such as Mastadon and Rage Against The Machine can be heard in their latest lyric video for ‘Are You Listening’ which was filmed in both Birmingham and Longwave Studios in Cardiff.
This then lead to the bands self-funded debut album, ͚Reflections͛(2013) produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Lower Than Atlantis, Bullet for my Valentine).
Line-up changes marred what could have been a crucial time for the band, but didn͛t hold them back from notching support slots to the likes of: Rival Sons, Heaven͛s Basement, Magnum, Skillet and more. 2015 brought a follow up EP in the form of ͚Fracture͛. Once again produced by Romesh, the hard hitting release documented the bands growth into a new sound and commerciality.
Already a fan favourite is ‘Undivided’ which can easily be used to describe the bands and themselves! find out why yourself below.
The bands largest tour to date came with a 17 date assault on the UK with American metallers SOiL in 2016, which was used to promote their latest single ͚Are You Listening͛.
With an ever growing fan base, the single gained playlisting on Kerrang and Planet Rock radio as well as worldwide independent radio stations .2017 will see the band head back into the studio to record their second full length album.
