Considering White Lies delayed their first performances in order to build up media hype and momentum, they've certainly been busy since. 2009 saw them play more than 50 gigs - plus DJ sets - from club shows at Heaven to appearing on the same bill as Jay-Z and Coldplay (and, er, Girls Aloud), at Wembley Stadium.
And the second half of 2011 looks to be no different for the indie rockers from Ealing. With their sophomore studio album, 'Ritual', released in January, the 2009 winners of the Q Award for Best New Band combine European dates with major festival appearances and landmark headline shows to cap another impressive year.
A fortnight after tickets for a 17th December Wembley Arena show went on sale (available from £23.50), they have announced three more December dates, starting at Wolverhampton on the 12th. On the road to Wembley, White Lies play the Manchester Apollo the following night and then Glasgow Academy on 15th.
Tickets for the three new dates are on sale from today starting at £17.50.
In the meantime, White Lies are airing the new material in Hyde Park on 22nd and 23rd June, where they share the stage with Paul Weller and the Kings of Leon. Tickets are available from £50.
They then play Glastonbury before a 7th July gig in Coventry, at the Kasbah (tickets £17.50), and then an appearance at the iTunes Festival on 23rd July, for which tickets are free (allocated by ballot - visit www.itunesfestival.com to apply).
