British trio WHITE LIES (Harry McVeigh – Vocals/Guitar, Jack Brown â€“ Drums. Charles Cave â€“ Bass) and their post-punk sounds will echo again stateside with a headline tour and performance at the CMJ Music Festival in October. From East to West, the bandâ€™s sincere tease of audiences abroad begins just days after the release of their Death EP on Fiction/Geffen Records, in stores and online October 21.
On the cusp of their largest headline performance to date at Londonâ€™s Koko Club in November, donâ€™t mistake their return as a warm-up. The band performed at Lollapalooza in August and have already headlined Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York as well as festivals across Europe (Leeds, Reading, Pukkelpop among others). Itâ€™s too late to see WHITE LIES before they break through. They are here.
Following the release of â€œUnfinished Business,â€ the sprawling ode to love and fear is â€œDeath.â€ Its dramatic and emotional reach is beyond a morose lament. Harryâ€™s deep vocals cry â€œYes this fearâ€™s got a hold on me.â€ Itâ€™s either love or death. You will LOVE WHITE LIES.
The Death EP will also feature â€œDeath (Crystal Castles Remix).â€ Former tour mates Crystal Castles have given â€œDeathâ€ new life with their first remix in 18 months. Spreading across blogs and playing in clubs all over, Ethan Kath and WHITE LIES have taken â€œDeathâ€ to another level.
UK press is already raving truth: â€œCinematic!â€ says the Guardian and christened by NME as the â€œGrandiose Archbishops of Cathedral Pop.â€ WHITE LIES will release their full length LP in early 2009.
