On these new songs, vocalist Kiliyan Maguire shares: “In 2021 I was faced with the passings of two very close people in my life and with those passings came a flood of questions pertaining to what happens after death. Our new E.P. “The After” really allowed me a place to grieve as well as explore the questions these passings brought with them. It’s the first concept piece we’ve ever constructed and I’m extremely proud as well as grateful for the healing process that this record brought with it.”

The tour kicks off December 3rd in San Francisco, and includes stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, New York, and more. A full list of dates can be found below, and tickets are available now at
About Charming Liars:
Charming Liars evolution began in London’s West End when guitarist Karnig Manoukian and bassist Mike Kruger were still in their teens. Both came from homes with wide ranging and eclectic musical tastes, and that early exposure informed their approach to making music.
They started writing and playing together in a series of bands and honed their musicianship with several tours up and down the U.K. In 2013 they decided to make the move to Los Angeles, in part spurred on by an encouraging social media message from songwriter and producer John Feldmann (Panic! at the Disco, Plain White T’s, 5 Seconds of Summer, Blink-182) – who told them to look him up for a songwriting session if they were ever in town.
The two connected with vocalist Kiliyan Maguire through a mutual friend while he was attending The Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Through initial conversations that lead to songwriting and then recording sessions – the 3 realized that they had an organic musical chemistry that would lead to interesting possibilities.
2019 proved to be a breakout year for the band, who released their debut album, Thought, Flesh and Bone, a follow-up acoustic EP, Bare Bones, and closed the year with a live collection titled Live 2019. They also headlined shows on the West Coast, toured Europe with The Faim, and crossed the US as direct support for Angels & Airwaves. Most recently Charming Liars returned to Europe with Palaye Royale.
Over the last couple months Charming Liars has continued their “Live Sounds of 2020” live video series, in addition to releasing their new EP Sequence 1: Noise Maker. The three song collection features recent singles “Pieces,” “When Did We?” and “White Leather Electric Chair.” Stay tuned for more coming soon at
