A dark-edged trio hailing from London, White Lies take sonic cues from the likes of Joy Division, the Teardrop Explodes, and Echo & the Bunnymen. Indeed, the three musicians, who first emerged in 2008, are so committed to the U.K.’s post-punk scene that they signed with Fiction Records, a Polydor imprint best known for its ’80s releases by the Cure and the Associates. Heralded by the single “Death,” the band’s 2009 debut To Lose My Life… hit number one in the U.K. They have continued to build upon their post-punk sound with albums like 2011’s Ritual, and 2016’s Friends.
They’ll be here at Rock City to share their sixth album As I Try Not To Fall Apart!
