The post-punk trio have just announced that they are to return in October with a fourth album, having been working on the record for the past year.

Friends promises to continue in White Lies‘ tradition of dark yet uplifting, moody yet poppish indie-rock in the vein of Joy Division or Editors.

The band rose to prominence upon the release of their debut To Lose My Life…, which proved a crossover success, reaching the top of the UK charts. To Lose My Life… was spurred on to success by its singles including Unfinished Business, Death and Farewell to the Fairground all receiving heavy rotation on national radio stations, and was followed by the bands’ sophomore release Ritual in 2011 and a third album Big TV in 2013.
