Amongst Liars release wild new single ‘You Are Not a Slave’

Fresh from their February 3000 mile French tour with Ayron Jones, Amongst Liars release a brand new single ‘You Are Not a Slave’ via Earache DD on 21st March 2024



‘”You Are Not a Slave” is all about personal metamorphosis; not conforming to unreasonable demands and not allowing yourself to be controlled or devalued by people who don’t have your best interests at heart. This song comes from a recent lived experience where I was subjected to passive-aggressive and toxic behaviour in a work environment, which really fucked with my psyche–but ultimately I wasn’t prepared to accept it. I channelled this frustration into the song, which was actually the last song to be recorded for our second album and I was really pissed off when I sang this in the studio, so I guess everything happens for a reason! It also relates to personal development in general, especially with the constraints being put on people. The message is: Be yourself, break the mould and don’t be afraid to follow your dreams.’

Amongst Liars are Ian George (vocals), Leo Burdett (guitar & BVs), Ross Towner (bass & BVs), Adam Oarton (drums), James Brumeo (synth & BVs)

 A tight band powerhouse; urgent, questioning, loud and fierce. Together they play heavy and direct modern rock: massive riffs and powerful, melodic choruses, fuzzy guitar, pummelling drums and bass, pin-balling between heavy alternative rock, grunge and punk. They also have a lyricist who can’t help but use his band as a platform to air anxieties and raise questions about the world we live in.

Debut self-titled album was released in July 2022 to critical acclaim and ‘You Are Not a Slave” is the fourth release from their sophomore album ‘Design’, scheduled for release on 4th July 2024.

The previous single ‘The Shameful’ was voted Metal Hammer’s Track of the Week.

Amongst Liars came off a hugely successful two-week tour supporting Theory of a Deadman across the UK in Sept 2023. On tour, the band also raised over £600 for the Metal for Good charity, for which they are ambassadors, by donating a percentage of their merch sales and auctioning a signed guitar.

After supporting Ayron Jones on his UK club tour in November 2022, Amongst Liars has just returned from a very successful 3000-mile French tour with Ayron in February 2024. More live dates and touring in 2024 are soon to be announced.
