White Lies have today released tickets for their UK headline tour next year, including a homecoming show at London Troxy.

This run of dates, in addition to their European shows scheduled in November and December, is in response to overwhelming demand following the release of their fourth album ‘Friends’ (released on 7 October).

‘Friends’ was produced by the band after the trio were temporarily without a label and was recorded in Bryan Ferry’s private studio in London.

Change is a big theme running through the album and bassist and lyricist Charles Cave commented: “In the past couple of years, we’ve noticed friends’ life situations causing them to make big decisions – marriages, kids, moving out of London. Friendships have begun to feel adult and our perception of time has changed. As kids, if you didn’t see a mate for a fortnight, you’d wonder what was wrong. Now you might not see someone for six months and it doesn’t matter.”

‘Friends’ proves that change has been much better than a rest for White Lies and these new tour dates will give fans the opportunity to celebrate a fresh start with them.
