UK artists White Lies added to line up and more!
This years 10th Vestrock Festival, an intimate three-day boutique festival set on a beautiful island in the fortified medieval city of Hulst (Zeeuws Vlaanderen, the Netherlands), takes place soon and a whole host of fabulous artists have just been added to the line up incl the UK's White Lies who will play the Main Stage alongside Kaiser Chiefs and Nothing But Thieves who will headline the weekend.
White Lies new album entitled Five was released on February 1st, 2019 - marking a decade of their existence whilst cementing their new home at [PIAS] Recordings.

Five sees the West-London trio scaling new creative heights with re-energised confidence. The landscape has drastically changed over the past decade, contemporaries have come and gone, consumerism constantly evolving but White Lies fans have remained as fervent and committed as ever both in the UK and Internationally.
As the band explains; “This is a mile stone record for White Lies. It marks our decade as a band, which has pushed us to expand our sound and reach new territory artistically - it marks the start of a new and exciting chapter for us."
The writing and recording process took in both sides of the Atlantic including a creative sojourn to Los Angeles where they worked on new material with old acquaintance Ed Buller - producer of two previous White Lies albums including the band’s chart-topping debut To Lose My Life and third release Big TV. The entire recording and writing process for Five has allowed the band to utilise past associates whilst also using the freedom to create the record they wanted to make.
Enlisting engineer James Brown (Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters), renowned producer Flood who can also be heard contributing synths and keys on a couple of tracks. Whilst eminent Grammy Award recipient Alan Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, The Killers) having worked on the band’s first two albums returns to mix the album.
More complex and bolder than its four predecessors with the addition of personal and-at-times intimate lyrics of bassist and primary songwriter Charles Cave, Five provides a confident stride forward as Cave concludes (somewhat tongue-in cheek), “I guess it’s true what they say, Five really IS the magic number.”
White Lies are: Harry McVeigh (lead vocals, guitar), Charles Cave (bass, b/vocals) and Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums)
Available on ltd edition vinyl, vinyl, CD and digitally.
