Washington ‘I Believe You, Liar’ Tour – August-September 2010


I
I Believe You Liar – Washington
  “I see them as sonic Polaroids, they all belong together.” That’s how Megan Washington assesses her stunning debut album, I Believe You, Liar (out 30 July 2010): a series of snapshots spanning 24 years, taking in everything from family to friends, crushes to heartbreak, trust, love, loss, lust, guilt, joy and everything in between. The album features Washington favourites Cement, Clementine, How To Tame Lions, Rich Kids and the new single Sunday Best.

Sunday Best is a story about lust and breaking up; Meg says “it just basically sounds like ‘I wanna have sex with you’ – which is, really, what it’s about”.

On July 30, Washington release their album with a sunset gig at Splendour In The Grass. Their performance will mark the beginning of a national tour celebrating the release of their album, and what promises to be one of the best Australian tours of the year!

Band of Horses is Ben Bridwell, Creighton Barrett, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey and Bill Reynolds. Though the band formed in Seattle, the gents hail from the southeastern United States, specifically the Carolinas. ‘Infinite Arms’ is the follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘Everything All The Time’ (2006) and ‘Cease to Begin’ (2007), and marks the recording debut of Ramsey and Reynolds, both long time touring members of the group. The band have become a

cohesive force with all members making invaluable contributions to the unmistakable sound that Bridwell has crafted since the band’s inception. As Bridwell himself concedes, “in many ways, this is the first Band of Horses record.”
