White Lies don't have a long history, but they are already a cult guitar band with an army of fans around the world.
Their career was launched by their 2009 debut album "To Lose My Life" with bombastic choruses that shot the trio of London boys to stardom. It topped the charts in the UK and heralded White Lies as one of the breakthrough bands of the decade.
The band was formed in 2007 by singer and guitarist Harry McVeigh, bassist Charles Cave and drummer Jack Lawrence-Brown, still under the name Fear of Flying.
They have released six albums to date, in addition to the aforementioned To Lose My Life: Ritual (2011), Big TV (2013), Friends (2016) Five (2019), and As I Try Not to Fall Apart (2022).
On the albums, they gradually calibrated their sound and expanded their sonic palette, tried synthetic flavours and new wave grooves, explored unfamiliar electronic soundscapes and didn't shy away from other progressive experiments. And yet, they've managed to remain one of rock's most solid acts, keeping the big drama onstage and maintaining a very low profile offstage.
