Los Angeles alternative band Charming Liars are continuing their breakout year in 2019 with the release of an acoustic EP, “Bare Bones“. The band hasjust returned from Europe from a tour with The Faim and is embarking on an extended run as support for Angels & Airwaves in September and October.

About “Bare Bones” Karnig Manoukian says: “The songwriting process has always been an integral part of our music creation and laying out these songs in this simpler, more organic form allows the song, lyrics and melodies to really shine. This is something that we will definitely continue to do in the future and is something that really excites us. It brings us back to these songs that we lived with for months and allows us to rejuvenate and recreate.  We lead off with the acoustic version of “Something Dark’.”  Next up is a new video for “Ocean” thatwill be released on Friday, 9/6.

As far as the Angels and Airwaves tour, Karnig states: “Wow – what can we say about this …. it’s undoubtedly going to be one of the most exciting tours that we’ve ever done!  Massive band, larger venues and lots of potential new fans. Tom Delonge is a legend and more over Angels and Airwaves is a band that we really look up to and align ourselves with. So this opportunity is near perfect – we can’t wait for it!”

The band has previously released a couple of EPs.  2016 saw the release of their single “Soul” which reached number #40 on the Alternative Radio Charts and the video has over 600,000 views on Youtube.  They have been endorsed by no less an icon than Sir Elton John, who has played the band’s music on his Apple Music “Rocket Hour” show. A cover of Sir Elton’s “I’m Still Standing” was released in the spring of 2017 in conjunction with the Grammy organization’s MusiCares arm. The band continued to make inroads @ Alternative radio in the fall of 2017 with “Insomnia” and the spring of 2018 with “Like A Drug“. The band continued to make inroads @ Alternative radio in the fall of 2017 with “Insomnia” and the spring of 2018 with “Like A Drug”. “Something Dark” continued building upon their foundation in September 2018 and is still playing at Alternative radio.
