WHITE LIES will perform an unmissable one-off warm-up show at Frome’s legendary Cheese & Grain this Summer (11.07.2019). 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 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.
