Edinburgh punk singer/songwriter BILLY LIAR has a new video which he's premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

'Oblivion' is taken from his forthcoming third album Crisis Actor, his first full-length for Pirates Press, which follows belatedly on from 2019's Some Legacy.

The album was recorded in Spring '22 at Antwerp's Big Dog Recordings, with Joe McMahon of Boston punks Smoke Or Fire in the producer's chair. Also on hand were Franz Nicolay from The Hold Steady on keyboards and Sham 69, Rachel Stamp and GMT drummer Robin Guy. Also, one of Billy's influences and inspirations, Frank Turner dropped in to lend vocals to the track 'Negroni'.

Crisis Actor is set for release on 3 November and is available to pre-order here.
