White Lies

from United Kingdom
Label: Fiction Records
Unknown - Confirmed: Nov. 9, 2010 (Awaiting Update)
White Lies are an English alternative rock band from Ealing, west London. Formerly known as Fear of Flying, the band consists primarily of Harry McVeigh (lead vocals, guitar), Charles Cave (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums). The band are complemented by Tommy Bowen (keyboards) during live performances.
White Lies formed in October 2007, upon writing songs they felt didn't suit their original band. After delaying their first performance for five months to build up media hype, they earned a recording contract with Fiction Records days after their debut. The release of singles "Unfinished Business" and "Death" led to tours and festival appearances in the United Kingdom and North America, including a headline performance at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend and a place on the 2009 NME Awards Tour. Further singles "To Lose My Life" and "Farewell to the Fairground" led to further media attention and the band's first worldwide headline tour. Upon the release of their debut album, To Lose My Life..., White Lies became the first British act in 2009 to achieve a number one album.
At the beginning of 2009, White Lies featured in multiple "ones to watch" polls for the coming year, including the BBC's Sound of 2009 poll, the 2009 BRITs Critics' Choice Award and the Q Magazine "Best New Artist" award. White Lies' musical style has been described as dark yet uplifting by the media,drawing comparisons to Joy Division, Editors and Interpol.
