Tonight! White Lies Opening for Kings of Leon


Anyone heading out to see Kings of Leon at the Scottrade Center should totally show up early to see White Lies. They're from the UK, and are the missing link between Echo & the Bunnymen/The Chameleons/Modern English and Interpol's first two records. So, think melancholy tones, post-punk riffs, ominous, rumbling vox. I caught 'em at SXSW and was really impressed by how great they were live. Check out that corrugated dark-wave riff below!
