White Lies first came onto the scene in 2009 with their debut album To Lose My Life. The album instantly went to #1 in the UK and sold over half a million copies worldwide. Their sophomore collection Ritual followed in January 2011, giving the band a Top 20 album in over fifteen countries around the world, a #3 in UK and quickly became a critical success ending the year in both Rolling Stone and Q’s albums of the year. The band has since sold out shows including London’s Wembley Arena, toured with Coldplay, Muse & Kings of Leon and performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Later With Jools Holland, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well as festivals across the world including Lollapalooza, Coachella, and Glastonbury, and this Summer will return to Reading & Leeds Festivals in the UK, on the main stage.
White Lies are Harry McVeigh (vocals/guitar), Charles Cave (bass), and Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums). The band will be performing a handful of US dates in October including stops in New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles – full routing below!
