Living Things Habeas Corpus Coming Early 2009
“The three Berlin brothers and one friend still churn out rough-edged rock with strong lyrical messages and pop sensibility.” – SPIN
The political garage-rock quartet discuss their forthcoming record with an exclusive video on SPIN directed by Floria Sigismondi. Watch the band discuss Habeas Corpus creation and unveil song snippets, plus stream the single “Let It Rain.” Fashion fans may recognize them from the Cavalli ads they’re currently in along side the illustrious Kate Moss.
“Lillian Berlin is Johnny Rotten with politics. His art would be nothing without his rage; he is possessed by the need to get his point across that he grabs his brothers’ music by the throat and makes it bellow his tune…”
– Village Voice
“Living Things are a band of fighters determined to make us all feel like winners” – Rolling Stone
