White Lies will perform an unmissable one-off warm up show at Frome’s legendary Cheese & Grain this Summer.
Following in the footsteps of megastars the likes of Foo Fighters and Robert Plant who have similarly rocked its halls in recent times, White lies will be heading to the Somerset venue for an intimate last show on home turf before embarking on a busy campaign of high-profile festival shows across the globe. The trio will be heading to Frome July 11 with tickets going on sale this Friday!
Earlier this year, the West London trio released their rave-received new album Five, a recorded which both marked a decade of their existence whilst cementing their new home at [PIAS] Recordings.Five witnessed the West-London trio scaling new creative heights with re-energised confidence. The landscape has drastically changed over the past decade, contemporaries have come and gone, consumerism constantly evolving but White Lies fans have remained as fervent and committed as ever both in the UK and Internationally.
The writing and recording process took in both sides of the Atlantic including a creative sojourn to Los Angeles where they worked on new material with old acquaintance Ed Buller – producer of two previous White Lies albums including the band’s chart-topping debut To Lose My Life and third release Big TV.
The entire recording and writing process for Five has allowed the band to utilise past associates whilst also using the freedom to create the record they wanted to make. Enlisting engineer James Brown (Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters), renowned producer Flood who can also be heard contributing synths and keys on a couple of tracks. Whilst eminent Grammy Award recipient Alan Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, The Killers) having worked on the band’s first two albums returns to mix the album.
More complex and bolder than its four predecessors with the addition of personal and-at-times intimate lyrics of bassist and primary songwriter Charles Cave, Five is the sound of band taking a confident stride forward and an album made for the live stage.
After undertaking an extensive European tour earlier on in 2019, the band now look to a packed summer of major festival shows that will see them conquer capacious stages from Mexico to Moscow, with an unmissable UK warm-up at Somerset’s Cheese & Grain.
