The Soft Pack

White Lies, one of the most hotly tipped new British bands of 2009, confirmed that potential with a No. 1 debut for their first album, "To Lose My Life" (Fiction/Polydor) on the new U.K. album chart. Lady GaGa's "Just Dance" (Interscope/Universal) started a third week atop the singles survey.

White Lies was known as Fear Of Flying until about a year ago. The band has released three singles so far under its current name, of which the most successful, also titled "To Lose My Life," edges 35-34 this week. Its instant album chart success came as the Script's self-titled Phonogenic/Sony BMG debut slipped 1-3, while Kings Of Leon's "Only By the Night" (Hand Me Down/Sony BMG) held at No. 2. [Billboard]

Friendly Fires, The Soft Pack and White Lies have joined forces for a North American tour presented by NME. That includes two nights in a row at Bowery Ballroom in March. Tickets for both shows go on sale today at noon. All dates below...

Friday night show is Sold Out, when was this show announced?

White Lies are the best band in 2009.

Soft Pack ain't too bad as a Opener and Friendly Fires.

I thought they had more of a Coldplay feel.

Love it. White Lies has a sound that is best new sound I've heard in awhile.

Already my fave cd of 2009!

White Lies is maybe the best band since the Beatles!

Posted by I also work for White Lies' record label | January 30, 2009 5:38 PM

I highly suggest checking out Soft Pack. Any band that generates adrenaline like they do is alright in my book.
