Charming Liars is a British rock band based in Los Angeles, California. Originally founded by lead vocalist - Charlie Cosser, guitarist - Karnig Manoukian, and bassist - Mike Kruger in London, England.
As teens growing up, the trio of talented musicians and songwriters that make up the core of this dynamic new rock band were shaken to their young souls by the crunching guitar riffs and memorable melodies that came out of the hard rock capital of the world, namely Los Angeles.
The impact on these impressionable music lovers was so powerful that they took the profoundly bold step of pulling up stakes, waving goodbye to the security of friends, family and a university education to follow their dream of becoming the next big thing by moving to Los Angeles – epicentre of American rock and roll for more than 45 years. With a grip on new “hometown“ Los Angeles and the addition of band members, Nick Krein (guitarist)“& Zack Riel (drummer) the band went to work forging their exciting sound.
Having completed recording with legendary producers Bob Rock & John Fields the band hit the road with a slot on the Rockstar Uproar Tour with Janes Addiction, New Politics and Alice in Chains among others, followed by North American & European support tours.
Mexico was next on the list as the guys travelled south of the border numerous times in 2014 to support the release of the“"We Wont Give Up" E.P culminating in a main stage slot at Corona Capital Festival in the heart of Mexico City with Kings Of Leon, Chvrches, Jack White and many more.
2015 marks the release of brand new music – coming in the form of new single "Burn". With pro- duction duties handled by guitarist Karnig Manoukian, "Burn"“ is a dark and driving example of the bands new sonic maturity.
Charming Liars are currently gearing up to take "Burn" and other new songs out on the road with a brand new EP dropping spring 2015.
