Los Angeles, CA – Alternative band Charming Liars are thrilled to share their latest single “LEFT BEHIND,” a forlorn track about navigating feelings of isolation. The song is out now and streaming here. “LEFT BEHIND” serves as the follow to recent single “WRECK IT ALL,” and the penultimate track from the band’s forthcoming album, TOURNIQUET. Stay tuned for more information at www.charmingliars.com.
On “LEFT BEHIND,” the band shares: “’LEFT BEHIND’ is a first person glimpse into struggle. It follows the mind as it navigates the cold trenches of mental warfare brought on by isolation and depression.”
Prior to the recent singles, Charming Liars previously shared two new videos from their “Live Sounds of 2020” series: “Falling” and “Disco Elvis.” The performances were filmed in late 2020 in a warehouse in Los Angeles – the first time the band performed together after the pandemic put an indefinite halt to live music. Charming Liars made their return to the stage last month on a series of west coast shows The Struts. The band looks forward to returning to the stage again soon.
About Charming Liars:
Charming Liars evolution began in London’s West End when guitarist Karnig Manoukian and bassist Mike Kruger were still in their teens. Both came from homes with wide ranging and eclectic musical tastes, and that early exposure informed their approach to making music.
They started writing and playing together in a series of bands and honed their musicianship with several tours up and down the U.K. In 2013 they decided to make the move to Los Angeles, in part spurred on by an encouraging social media message from songwriter and producer John Feldmann (Panic! at the Disco, Plain White T’s, 5 Seconds of Summer, Blink-182) – who told them to look him up for a songwriting session if they were ever in town.
The two connected with vocalist Kiliyan Maguire through a mutual friend while he was attending The Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Through initial conversations that lead to songwriting and then recording sessions – the 3 realized that they had an organic musical chemistry that would lead to interesting possibilities.
2019 proved to be a breakout year for the band, who released their debut album, Thought, Flesh and Bone, a follow-up acoustic EP, Bare Bones, and closed the year with a live collection titled Live 2019. They also headlined shows on the West Coast, toured Europe with The Faim, and crossed the US as direct support for Angels & Airwaves. Most recently Charming Liars returned to Europe with Palaye Royale.
Over the last couple year Charming Liars has continued their “Live Sounds of 2020” live video series, in addition to releasing their new EPs Sequence 1: Noise Maker and Sequence 2: The After.
