Synopsis

Album Description
TOURING SXSW THROUGH COACHELLA #1 DEBUT IN THE UK WHITE LIES (Harry McVeigh - Vocals/Guitar, Jack Brown - Drums, Charles Cave - Bass) - The first breakthrough artist of 2009 in the UK, will arrive straight off the acclaimed NME Awards Tour, the annual tour that has previously broken Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand and The Killers overseas. On their US tour (also presented by NME), WHITE LIES and Friendly Fires will rotate the headlining spots, with each band playing a full set every night. MOJO: "Epic British Indie Reborn!" NME: "Majestic Rock doesn't get more haunting than this." THE FLY: "To Lose My Life is a big, fuck, a massive album." THE GUARDIAN: "Strikingly catchy and accomplished." ARTROCKER: "Bypass this band at your peril."

CD Reviews

Stellar!
John J. Knapik | Orlando, FL | 03/26/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What an incredible album...I had the import of this since January and haven't stopped listening to it. Very dark and mysterious at times, like a window into a twisted soul. It hints at goth and electronica but never deviates from true rock music. Nothing sounds corny or contrived. This really is THE rock album of 2009."
Curious Musical Connoisseurs
Patrick Hubbard | Eugene, OR | 11/21/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like many newer bands today, there's perceived musical influences amongst stated ones. White Lies are young, and say they don't sound like anyone. While taking these Brits at their word may work for some, points of reference are a must for description. Listening 'To Lose My Life' brought many sounds and quips from musical memory, but flattery may not be the best compliment here. A Flock of Seagulls and Icicle Works guitar riffs; The Cars whimsical keyboards; Echo & Bunnymen's strings; amongst A-Ha's and Tears For Fears like vocals makes first listen to almost schizophrenic. Rounding off with similar gigs like The Editors and Franz Ferdinand tops off schizo sound with pleasant confusion. Consecutive listenings however, they start growing on you - with increasing talent and sound all their own. Highly recommended for curious musical connoisseurs."
Best cd I've heard in a long time!

"What can I say? This is like a modern version of some of my fave 80's bands--INXS, Depeche Mode, Psychedelic Furs. I love every track on this cd and have listened to it over and over. I'm amazed that something so complete came out of a debut cd. Fabulous job guys!"
