When Brisbane’s melodic hardcore quartet She Cries Wolf surprise-dropped their album “Liar” in February this year, they could not have predicted the year they have had. Today, they are announcing the support acts on their end-of-year party – 21st December at Brisbane’s home of heavy music, Crowbar sees them cap off their epic year with a show alongside a bunch of mates – and playing Liar in full. Tickets are on sale now for the show at Oztix.
Today, She Cries Wolf are announcing the bands joining them for this epic show – Brisbane heavies Apate, Deathbed and Fang.
Liar gained She Cries Wolf a heap of love and some serious props around the world, including adds to playlists such as Spotify’s Homegrown & Heavy, triple j’s Short Fast Loud playlist, 182k listens for the album on Spotify, Apple Music’s New Blood playlist and 4-star reviews on triple j unearthedfrom Declan Byrne (Home & Hosed) and Tommy Faith (triple j unearthed).
Metal Hammer stated that “Liar, this Queensland quartet’s third full-length release, is the band’s most exciting and dynamic release by far. Plying fierce modern hardcore with fresh fury and creative depth, this album is raw, dark and relentless.”.
killyourstereo.com said that “She Cries Wolf haven’t sounded this malevolent, this bleak, nor this aggressive, and the proof is really in the pudding of how well that’s paid off for them.”.
Depth Mag called it “…an expunging of fury, standing up for oneself, seeing promises through, facing blame, and seeking for others to take responsibility, even if this means that you end up alone; the truth mattering more than popularity. The result is something surprisingly artful, and I look forward to letting these songs unravel in my mind over time with further listens.”
Hysteria Mag said that they “…dive deep into fear and loathing for a strong and surprising return.”
The band rolled out the album by teasing the record anonymously with the hashtag
#everyonelovestheliar in the weeks prior to the release of the album (with several high-profile acts in the Australian heavy music scene posting the hashtag and image including The Amity Affliction, Stepson and more!) – the band then dropped the single Magdalene with guest vocals from Ahren Stringer of The Amity Affliction, seemingly as a stand-alone release, before the Friday morning reveal that the album was live.
It was a move that saw the rest of the year fall into place for them – the album release then taking them across Australia mid-year with Heists, and then back home to a sold out headline show, and a huge All Ages revival show alongside The Brave, Deadlights and Stepson and more at the iconic Princess Theatre.
