White Lies released fourth studio long-player, Friends, back in October 2016 through BMG. The album was self-produced by the band at Bryan Ferry’s (Roxy Music) private studio in London, England. Friends is supported by four singles: “Take It Out On Me,” “Come On,” “Morning In LA,” and “Hold Back Your Love.”
The band primarily consists of core band members Harry McVeigh (lead vocals, guitar), Charles Cave (bass, backing vocals), and Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums), however they often perform with Tommy Bowen (keys). White Lies’ music has drawn comparisons to that of The Killers, Interpol, The Cure, Joy Division, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Editors.
To Lose My Life or Lose My Love, White Lies’ debut album was first released in January 2009 via Fiction Records. The album, which reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart and No. 146 on the Billboard 200, includes fours singles: “Unfinished Business,” “Death,” “To Lose My Life,” and “Farewell to the Fairground.”
Vowws, an industrial pop duo based in Los Angeles, California by way of Sydney, Australia, will serve as opening act. The duo, which features Matt (guitar, vocals) and Rizz (keyboards, vocals), released debut studio long-player, The Great Sun, back in October 2015 via Cleopatra Records. The album, produced by Kevin McMahon (SWANS, The Walkman), features guest appearances musicians by Gary Numan, Thor Harris (SWANS), and Beki Aldridge (The Mavis’s).
