British / American rock group, Charming Liars, recently partnered up with songstress Vendela for a stripped-down version of their track, “Fingers Crossed.” The video can be seen at this location or below. Vocalist Charlie Cosser commented on the collaboration with Vendela: “We’d always wanted to collaborate with a female artist and thought this would be the perfect song to do it on. The lyrics become more of a conversation between boy and girl and give the song a whole new dimension.”
“Fingers Crossed” comes off of the band’s brand new EP titled, “We Won’t Give Up,” which is the follow-up EP to last year’s “New Disorder” EP. “We Won’t Give Up” features five tracks of anthem-driven, pop-infused alternative rock that showcases the band’s steady growth over the last year. The band also teamed up with legendary producers Bob Rock (Metallica, Offspring, Black Veil Brides) and John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, Demi Lovato, Jonas Brothers) for the recording of the EP. Lead vocalist Charlie Cosser describes the experience, “The entire experience of making this EP was incredible. We worked with two amazing producers (Bob Rock and John Fields) who taught us a hell of a lot about songwriting and musicianship. We were a little intimidated going into the process given that they are both super-producers with pretty insane track records but we definitely came out the other end with a wealth of new knowledge and some pretty funny anecdotes.” Fans can purchase the EP on iTunes here.
Charming Liars will be performing at this year’s Corona Capital Festival in Mexico City alongside Weezer, MGMT, and Kings of Leon. The festival will take place the weekend of October 11th and 12th.

Charming Liars is a British/American 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 in London, England, 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 their sights aimed at the rest of the world, Charming Liars are set to raise the stakes.
