LIAR originally formed in 1975 and recorded their first album "Straight From The Hip" for Decca Records. The band toured extensively in the UK and throughout Europe before recording the critically acclaimed follow up album "Set The World On Fire" in 1977, one of the first colour picture-disc records in the UK.

Liar were very much a British rock band, with foundations based on the likes of Bad Company, Queen and Led Zeppelin. The band was warmly received in Europe at the time but not so well in the UK where punk was at its height.. They toured with Slade and gained some success but the band was best suited to the American market and so they were whisked off to LA to write new material ready for a third album. For inspiration, they were ensconced in a house at the top of the Hollywood Hills (next door to Mick Fleetwood) on Sunset Plaza Drive, from which the name of the third release was taken. Sunset Plaza Drive eventually saw the light of day this year on Escape Music (ESM341), 42 years after it was recorded!

It was “Set the World on Fire” that really stood out as the band’s finest moment and it was chock full of memorable songs that have stood the test of time admirably. This reissue sounds magnificent and the songs have benefited from the latest technology. Each CD is numbered and has a hand signed card from the then four remaining members of the band (all are signed, not copies). Sadly, Paul Travis died very soon after his signing session.

Set the World on Fire is a fabulous reminder of late 70’s British Rock at its finest and is a “must have” release for anyone who loved that era. A Classic of its time.

Heartwind is the love child of progressive keyboard player Mikael Rosengren and guitar player Goran Engvall. The two friends came together in 2017 to write a true melodic rock album, inspired by all their heroes from the 70’s and 80’s, but with a fresh and updated sound. Fast guitars, heavy drums and great songs were their target, aiming for the likes of Whitesnake, Def Leppard and Van Halen.

Their 2018 debut “Higher and Higher” was such a breath of fresh air it gave the band strong recognition in a very competitive genre. The songs they had written were so powerful and full of melody that it left fans wanting more.

So here we have the follow up recording “Strangers” which sees the band escalate to new heights and features 10 tracks of superb melodic rock with outstanding vocal performances from Nina Soderquist and Stefan Nykvist. Songs filled with hooks, interesting arrangements and melodies to die for.

The song writing of Mikael and Goran is a match made in heaven and with a line up filled with high quality band members and superb guest performances from the likes of Mike Lavér (Dynazty), Eirikur Hauksson (Artch), Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse/WET) and Mats Leven (Malmsteen) “Strangers” can’t go wrong!

The album is produced, mixed and mastered by Fredrik Folkare (Eclipse / Unleashed), a guarantee itself for high quality and no compromises attitude, when it comes to groove, feel and power.

“Strangers” is one of those releases that have you hooked after just one play. Swedish melodic rock as it should be!
