WHITE LIES were formed in 2007 by Harry McVeigh, Charles Cave and Jack Lawrence-Brown. Their debut album To Lose My Life… was released in January of 2009 and immediately topped the UK Albums Chart bursting on to the scene with two major singles – ‘To Lose My Life’ and ‘Farewell to the Fairground’. By the beginning of 2011 WHITE LIES released their follow up Ritual, 2013 welcomes the release of Big TV, and Friends drops in 2016.
Their intense creative process of regular studio album releases culminates in early 2019 with the release of Five, White Lies’ fifth studio album, to both audience and critical acclaim. Harry McVeigh’s vocals, often reminiscent of Ian Curtis’, commonly draw comparisons to Joy Division, Interpol and Editors by critics, however the WHITE LIES trio highlights Talking Heads, The Secret Machines and The Cars as their most important musical influences.
