Alt-rockers White Lies will visit O2 Academy Bristol this winter to promote their latest album, Big TV.
White Lies, who recently scored their third top-five album in five years with Big TV, have announced details of their first major UK shows since selling out Wembley Arena in December 2011.
Ahead of their main stage appearance at Reading and Leeds Festival this weekend the band said: “We’re delighted to bring Big TV to some of our favourite UK venues this winter.”
Support on all shows comes from US singer Frankie Rose (ex Dum Dum Girls).
Additionally the band has announced details of a new single – First Time Caller, to be released on October 7.
In an interview with NME, bassist Charles Cave described Big TV as their most melodic record yet.
The album follows a story of a couple who leave a provincial area for a big city and, according to Cave, the idea of equality in a relationship is a recurring theme.
White Lies‘ musical style has been described as dark yet uplifting, drawing comparisons to Joy Division, Editors, The Bravery and Interpol.
Their debut album To Lose My Life… was released back in January 2009, debuting at number one on the UK Album Chart.
White Lies hit O2 Academy Bristol on December 8, 2013. Tickets go on sale at 9am on August 30, 2013.
