Liars announce a brand new single, "The Overachievers," out May 25th, 2010. The single includes a Devendra Banhart's remix of the title track as well as two brand new B-sides, "Pleasure Is Boss" and "Only Sometimes." "The Overachievers" is taken from Sisterworld, the band's critically acclaimed fifth album - out now CD and 2CD version with very special packaging.

The second disc of the 2CD release sees each track on Sisterworld remixed and reinterpreted by a host of artists including Thom Yorke, Atlas Sound, Blonde Redhead, Fol Chen, Boyd Rice andAlan Vega (full tracklisting below) while the unique packaging, designed by Brian Roettinger / Hand Held Heart (Grammy nominated and Rolling Stone award winning for his work with No Age) allows a surreal glimpse into the Sisterworld concertina.

Liars will debut material from "Sisterworld"at SXSW 2010. The band plays Thursday March 18th, 2010 at theInsound party at Club Deville (set time: 4pm) and will headline the Billions showcase Friday March 19th, 2010 (set time: 1am). The trio Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross, will be performing as a five piece at SXSW and their forthcoming US tour with Samuel Bing and Alex Myrvold both of the band Fol Chen. Fol Chen will be opening for Liars on their Spring 2010 upcoming tour. (dates below)
