EXCLUSIVE “MID LIVER CRISIS” ALBUM ART, TRACK LISTING + NEW SONG ON THE BBC!

MLC 12" insert

This week those kind folks over on the only music website that matters, Uber Rock, previewed the new album art and track listing. Based on Ginge Knievil’s trusty beer and sweat soaked gig jacket, we hope you’ll all provide some photos when you have the 12″ in your grubby mitts. You can be Ginge! The vinyl inserts (above) have also arrived courtesy of Armitage Smith in old London Town, and they look fucking amazing! That full Uber Rock story here.

Sick Livers on Tape

We also hit the pages of Punk News concerning the Baldy Longhair Records cassette version of “Mid Liver Crisis” this week. The new album will be on Side A with a first USA release for “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing” on Side B. Oh, and you also get ‘Hell Of A Girl’ and ‘Rumney Rock City’ as bonus tracks, making this the ultimate analogue story of The Sick Livers thus far. The reversible sleeve (above) is also very slick, we’re sure you’ll agree. The Punk News article can be found here.

BBC Radio Wales

Last weekend new track “Dark, Dangerous & Delicious” was premiered on Adam Walton’s BBC Radio Wales show. The host gave us a “legendary” label so we now feel just like Newport’s TJs! Listen back to the track on the BBC iPlayer, we’re about 2 hours and 5 minutes in. 23 days left and counting! Click here.

“Mid Liver Crisis” – out August 2015 on Glunk Records (GLUNK004LP) and Baldy Longhair (BLR020).

DUBLIN – WE THANK YOU!

Sick livers in Dublin

It wouldn’t be a trip with The Sick Livers without some debacle or other! But hey, Dublin, we made it! And what a trip it was.
Sick livers in Dublin 2
After flight delays galore resulting in cancellations, would this rabble of Welsh fuck-ups actually make the Emerald Isle? Aptly accompanied by 4 more of Wales’ most debauched elder statesmen in the shape of Trigger McPoopshute, and shacked up in swanky Cardiff Bay hotel a mere 24 hours before showtime in the Irish capital, things weren’t looking good. With a constant steam of caffeine, nicotine, alcohol and benzodiazepines, the rock ‘n’ roll machine finally got airborne and it was game on!
Sick Livers stage invasion Dublin
A perfectly formed enthusiastic crowd awaited us at The Pint on Eden Quay. Inclusive of a few mad Welsh travellers, the up-for-the-craic crowd lost their inhibitions to the glunk, with Tubrojugend Dublin leading the charge! A “Denim Demon” and “Bummed To Death” finale cumulated in a stage invasion, complete with some Swedish skins on tambourine!
Dublin Setlist
So, thank yous to… Moz and Elaine in Ireland for all your hard work; to Trigger McPoopshute – touring partners that wet dreams are made of; Carlos and team at The Pint for amazing throbbing sound and snazzy light show; to Pat the driver on Irish soil; to Lewis Davies, Alan Cahill and Michael Murphy for travelling; to the Turbojugend in attendance; to Flemings Photography (proper shots to follow); and to all who came and partied. Absolutely blown away yet again.
Nid Liver Crisis crop
“Mid Liver Crisis” is officially at the pressing plant. Standby for an album teaser trailer! Hopefully see you for more gig lunacy at a town near you real soon. Full listings here

Mid liver teaser

FEBRUARY ALBUM UPDATE + GIG NEWS!

Therapy?

As we type, the new album is taking a dirty, twisted and glorious glam punk rock shape. A 10 strong killer chorus and big riff laden opus that we believe to be our best work to date. Early seals of approval have already been stamped by our peers in the shape of Charlie Harper (UK Subs) and Andy Cairns (Therapy?). The latter agreed to supply the vocal intro to the album’s opening track – “This Is My Denim.” Massive thanks to Andy and to Ian Glasper of Thirty Six Strategies for hooking us up. There could be a second guest appearance to follow too, so watch this space!

The One Night Stand At The Pint Dublin

Over the coming months we’ve gigs aplenty. From hometown shows in our native Wales, a few festival appearances, a support slot with The Dictators, jetting into Dublin for a one night stand, and more. Full details of all our shows with ticket links can be found  Here.
