The end of last year saw the highly anticipated release of Liberty Lies new single ‘Different Tongues’. Recorded at Romesh Dodangoda’s Longwave studio in Cardiff, mixed by Dan Lucas at Anchor Baby Recording and mastered by Katie Tavini, it was the second single release of 2018.
The single sees yet more development in the vast appeal of Liberty Lies as they effortlessly straddle the line between alt rock and full on stadium rock.
The West Midlands based quintet drew inspiration for the new video from the ever-growing social epidemic of the perception of being alone. “It’s about the feeling of not belonging as part of the crowd and going against the tide to be who you want to be and achieve your own goals” explained guitarist Josh Pritchett.

With several exciting appearances yet to be announced, the band are really looking forward to getting back out on the road. In the meantime if you want to catch them in Newport, they’re playing The Patriot on Friday 12th April 2019.
I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
