Below is our complete Liar news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
After more than 10 years of perpetuating the name of Belgium's H8000 scene, Liar has called quits. They played a memorable set at Ieper fest and a final show earlier in October.
Members of Liar and Congress from Belgium have teamed up to form a new project called Your God Is Dead. Two tracks can be checked out at the band's MySpace.
Hans of Liar has issued the following update regarding their disbandment:
"After 11 years of LIAR, the time has come to end it all here and now. We take pride in all the things we have done through the years, we take pride in the fact that we have paved the path for a current metalcore scene, did things back then no-one else did and that this small band out of small region in Belgium called h8000 could do a bunch of great tours in and out of Europe over the years. Not many bands in this scene have the chance and inspiration to put out 5 full length releases and a bunch of other stuff, this is again an action i take personal pride in, being the starter of Liar and one and only original member left, i see this kind of as a personal statement, but it's definitely in the name of Liar as a collective. A crazy bunch of situations that have occured this year leaves no other choice than just quitting …All the huge positive feedback on our latest effort, Murder Manifesto, should give every band plenty of motivation and energy to conquer and continue, but to us it just brought sheer misery… Constant line-up changes, cancellations and basically a band without a plan lately aren't good motivations to keep the fire buring, it was a bit too much to handle in the very end. Liar has started out as a 100% sXe band and after the many fill-ins live, that weren't edge and the difficulties of finding members that are, that's another big problem to keep it going. Thanx a million to the fill-ins for being there and made a lot of things still possible of course. We met amazingly great people through the years, made a ton of friends and especially the GSR staff picked us up and made it possible to release our last effort 'murder manifesto'. Thanks for everything, as you know who you are! HANS & LIAR. 1995-2006." STAY TUNED!!! "
