White Lies’ sophomore album, Ritual, is set to hit stores on January 18th via Geffen/Fiction. Produced by Alan Moulder, Ritual is an epic and roaring follow up to 2009’s To Lose My Life, taking the listener on a sonic journey through dancefloor beats, raging guitars, and everything in between. The new album teems with dark distorted anthems for the modern age, leading British critics to hail White Lies as successors to the likes of Echo & The Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, Depeche Mode, and The Psychedelic Furs. Magazine has dubbed lyricist [and bass guitarist] Charles Cave a “classic doom-rock dreamweaver; Nick Cave meeting Edgar Allen Poe.”
The U.K. trio is now offering a live version of their first single “Bigger Than Us.” The phenomenal live track was recorded in Mexico for Sesiones Con Alejandro Franco.
