Harry McVeigh and his young charges have had what could be described as a meteoric rise to fame. Formed in late 2007, signed to Fiction in 2008, headliners at Radio 1's Big Weekend in 2009 after releasing a decent debut number one album and now all set to repeat the cycle once again (minus the change of label) with the announcement of the 2nd White Lies album in 2011.
Despite only playing a couple of headlining gigs in 2010 (at Fac 251), they've been busy playing V Festivals and writing new songs for the next album, tentatively called "Ritual", set for release in mid-January with a preceding single "Bigger than Us" due out on 3rd Jan.
Fancy seeing the band deliver those new songs at an exclusive gig? Read on....
The band plays an exclusive launch-gig on 22nd November at London's York Hall in Bethnal Green, tickets cost £17.50 and go on sale at 1pm this Friday. As you can expect, demand will be massive for this evening so get in quick.
