    Ever-mutating New York art punks Liars have announced they will release a new album on June 5 via Mute Records.

    The album title and tracklist have yet to be released, but we do know that the band self-produced this one in Los Angeles with help from Mute founder Daniel Miller and mixer Tom Biller.

    Since the release of 2002's angular dance punk attack They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top, Liars have developed a reputation for never staying in one place for long, having played with impenetrable art-noise, atmospheric balladry and feed-bank drenched punk over the past decade.

    They long ago became a genre of one, taking whatever style interested them in the moment and filtering it through their aesthetic of two parts gleeful chaos to one part post-punk songwriting.

    We're going to have to wait a few more months to see where they will go next, but to get an advanced idea you can head over to their tumblr account.

    Based on available evidence the album will yet again be strange, and Liars recording sessions are pretty much a nonstop dance party.
