Liberty Lies are a five piece formed in 2008 from a small town called Wednesbury in the Black Country, West Midlands.

Aged 16, the band found themselves purchasing a PA system and performing covers in pubs in order to fund their original material, which they slowly introduced to their sets.

By 2009, Liberty Lies had notched up a number of support slots with the likes of GUN, Skin, Towers of London before landing a UK tour with rock veterans Magnum.

2010 bought their debut EP release, New Addiction. The EP showcased the bands early influences, from the likes of Black Stone Cherry, Alter Bridge and Shinedown.

Not long after this, LL had a change in line up, which brought about a much more alternative, modern sound which later became their debut album Reflections, produced by Romesh Dodangoda.

2012 was a landmark year for the band as they embarked on their first European tour, supporting Shinedown and Halestorm in Germany, Holland and the UK.

Liberty Lies found themselves being able to headline small shows around the country for the first time in their career. Nationwide UK runs with other unsigned bands helped the band create their follow up EP, Fracture. They were also voted as finalists of Red Bull’s unsigned band competition which almost see them win a place at Download Festival.

Once again, the band returned to Cardiff to record the EP with Romesh.

In recent years, the band have signed with TKO Booking Agency and toured with the likes of Max Raptor, Heaven’s Basement, Santa Cruz, Empire, Press to Meco and had one off shows with Alien Ant Farm and Skillet amongst nationwide festivals.

2016 saw Liberty Lies release their latest single Are You Listening and do their most extensive UK tour with SOiL, Saliva and Sons of Texas amongst summer festival appearances.
Looking to produce something uniquely different the band’s sound continually evolves.

The band’s latest output is a four track EP entitled ‘Fracture’ which they recorded with Romesh Dodangoda at longwave studios in Cardiff. The EP ‘demonstrates the band as both superb song-smiths and adroit musicians’, check it out now on Spotify and iTunes!
