Breaking into the the New York dance-punk scene in 2000, Liars continues to constantly reinvent their work, shifting their style between albums. Their embrace of interdisciplinary multimedia makes them much more than just a mere rock band. Liars' music can't be separated from the visuals that typically accompany each album; it's all about eluding expectations and sabotaging casual interpretation—a consistent approach that continues to produce works like WIXIW (their sixth studio album) that defy categorization. In a review for BBC Music, John Doran called the album an "unqualified success." For their Met Museum debut, Liars presents a multimedia, site-specific performance in the Temple of Dendur in the Sackler Wing.
This concert is presented in association with Wordless Music, and in conjunction with the exhibition PUNK: Chaos to Couture, on view May 9–August 11, 2013. This concert is made possible in part by Isabel C. Iverson and Walter T. Iverson.
