White Lies Are ComingSeptember 8th, 2009
Singer-guitarist Harry McVeigh, lyricist-bassist Charles Cave and drummer-keyboardist Jack Lawrence Brown met in school in West London. They formed the band Fear of Flying in 2004 and released a few Brit-pop singles. But they weren’t completely satisfied. And by 2007, they’d taken on a new name—White Lies—and had begun playing more somber material. Since then, the trio—complemented by a fourth musician, Tommy Bowen, for live performances—has released an EP, four singles and, earlier this year, their debut studio album, To Lose My Life…. The tour for that album brings White Lies to Webster Hall on Friday, September 25th.
