LIES! 2023

Frank (left) is our new second guitarist. Frank is a good acquaintance. You may know him from his bands My Own Words (thrash/hardcore) and Hoist The Colours (punk). The mini-tour through Germany was a great success. Thanks everyone, we will be back at the end of this year. We have been confirmed for several festivals and will be going to Denmark this summer. We will be focusing on new recordings in the upcoming period and doing some cool shows in between. Stay tuned.

In the meantime Sander has done several cool studio recordings with Rise Above and Swim Or Drown in his studio 3181. Marcel is working on a new release with legendary Sad Whisperings (Vic Records). Rene recently contributed guest vocals on a new album by Rise Above.

LIES! is a hardcore / metal band from The Netherlands. They combine elements of hardcore, death and thrash metal. The extreme vocals and pounding riffs create a terrifying aggressive hardcore sound. Lyrically it is about gripping personal events and socio-political subjects. For fans of 90s metalcore bands like All Out War, Kickback, Merauder and currently active bands like Terror, God’s Hate, Inclination, Born From Pain, Lifesick, Year of the Knife and Judiciary. The Dutch metallic hardcore band emerged out of the Groningen scene in 2011. Founded by the (ex)members of hardcore bands Instil, The Hunger, Not in This Lifetime and metal bands Expulsion, Mon’strum and Murder Manifest. 

In 2011 they released a demo (Street Survival Recs) and in 2012 a 12″ vinyl album called “Nineties” (TTL Recs). This debut record gained nothing but positive critics. Their energetic heavy live shows quickly drew attention of the hardcore and metal community and promoters. LIES! played hardcore shows and festivals in several countries in Europe including shows with Hatebreed, Nasty and Sick Of It All. In 2015 Indonesian label Diorama Records released a 3-way split-CD with LIES!, Belgium H8000 hardcore band Deconsecrate and Indonesian metalcore band Hands Upon Salvation. in 2015, they put the group on indefinite hiatus and reunited as a five-piece in 2019 till Covid put a spanner in the works. From 2022 LIES! is back in business as a 5-piece band with new tracks and live-shows. The new singles and music videos gained over 100.000 views/plays in a matter of a few weeks. In May 2022 LIES! dropped a new EP called “Rebirth” with 3 new tracks and 2 re-recorded LIES! classics which gained good response and massive streams so far!

We are often asked how someone can really help us as an underground band. It used to help by distributing flyers, drop our band name in groups, buy merch and go to shows. There are hardly any radio stations that play heavy music. Facebook and Instagram have made it difficult for bands to be discovered without advertising. There is a very simple way to support us. Go to our LIES! Spotify Artist page and hit the follow button. It triggers Spotify to share our music with like-minded people like you and us around the world. Thanks!
