Fast-rising Cumbrian punks THE LIARS CLUB have just unveiled another new video from their forthcoming EP.
The psychobilly-charged 'Tutankhamun' is the second track to be taken from the Barrow-in-Furness quartet's Of Self EP, following on from the recent '8 Tonne' video.
"'Tutankhamun’ is a brutal look at ruthless leaders on a broad spectrum," state the band. "It takes ideologies and tyrannical occurrences to a face-value and over-exaggerated stand point, labelling them as they are and not what they seem to be. Stopping at nothing, the protagonist in the lyrics will do anything to make himself more powerful, ruling ‘I’ll kill your husband if it means that you’ll abide’. It's a clear over-exaggeration, with a hint of an almost numbing feeling towards the consequences of his actions."
Evidently at their best live, the band have chosen to accompany the track with gig footage shot at a recent hometown gig...
"The video is compiled from footage of our last hometown gig at Barrow Underground Music Society (affectionately known as BUMS),” say the band. “All the footage was taken by a fan in the audience and edited by film maker Reco Real.”
