"Drum's Not Dead was partly inspired by the Liars' relocation to Berlin from NYC after their 2004 album They Were Wrong, So We Drowned. From clanging guitars, martial beats, dense drones and pulverizing rhythms to high dreamy harmonies, off-kilter guitar lines and soothing samples of waves lapping, this is Liars' finest, fullest and most unexpected album to date. Shredding all past reference points, Drum's Not Dead sees Liars taking another seismic step forward, switching continents, seizing new musical territory and expanding their audio-visual ambitions. Drum's Not Dead come with its own cinematic sister project -- a DVD, with three film versions of the album, directed by the band members Angus Andrew, Julian Gross & filmmaker Markus Wambsganss. Each film is comprised of videos for every track on the album: 36 videos total. From backstage travelogues to surreal animation and mini sci-fi epics, Liars document the process of recording, touring, then visually reinventing each track."
