Howdy, folks. We are excited to announce that we will be back on the road in February, heading down to Lombard, IL to support the legendary songwriter, Billy Don Burns! The show will be February 8 at the Brauerhouse, 1000 N. Rohlwing Road, #13, Lombard, IL. 21+ and tickets are only $10. If you are a country fan and don't know who Billy Don Burns is, it is high time you get acquainted. Some good articles about his significant contributions to country music can be found here: https://www.savingcountrymusic.com/down-but-not-out-the-incarceration-of-billy-don-burns/ and here: https://www.rustyknucklesmusic.com/pages/billy-don-burns.

We sure are glad you stopped by. Since 2011, Liar's Trial has represented outlaw country from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. No matter where we play (and we play 'em all), we stay true to the founding fathers and mothers of this genre by continuing to offer genuine and original outlaw country music - uncensored and straight from the heart. We hope to see you out at the shows and on the road.

Jon Langford's Four Lost Souls w/Liar's Trial
Jon Langford's (Mekons, Waco Brothers) latest solo project "Jon Langford's Four Lost Souls" was recorded in Muscle Shoals Alabama by legendary producer Norbert Putnam and features a collaboration with vocalists Tawny Newsome and Bethany Thomas on a whole brace of new Langford songs.
Jon was originally the drummer for the punk band The Mekons when it formed at the University of Leeds in 1977, but he later took up the guitar as other band members left. Since the mid-1980s he has been one of the leaders in incorporating folk and country music into punk rock. He has released a number of solo recordings as well as recordings with other bands outside of The Mekons, most notably the Waco Brothers, which he co-founded after moving to Chicago in the early 1990s.
Among Langford’s musical side projects have been the Three Johns (with John Hyatt and John (Phillip) Brennan), the country-punk Waco Brothers, the Pine Valley Cosmonauts and Ship and Pilot. He became a father figure to the local music scene, encouraging many of his labelmates on Bloodshot Records and championing anyone he thought worthy of scrutiny, often lending his services as a musician or visual artist or inviting local musicians to guest on his releases. Langford’s first official solo album, Skull Orchard, was released in 1998. He followed it with All the Fame of Lofty Deeds, in 2004, Gold Brick in 2006, and Old Devils in 2010.
Langford is an accomplished artist and is renowned for his multi-layered paintings of famous and forgotten figures from the dawn of country music. Nashville Radio, a collection of his artwork and writings, was published in 2006.
Langford has guested on numerous recordings, including with Dutch punk band the Ex, The Old 97s, Chip Taylor, as well as Austin, Texas legend Alejandro Escovedo, and has recorded joint albums with Sally Timms, Kevin Coyne, Richard Buckner, Kat Ex and Rosie Flores.
