Fan's favourite now available

Gloomy Londoners White Lies have surprised fans by making rare track 'Taxidermy' available as a download.

White Lies broke through at the tail end of 2008, as the thermometer began to drop as quickly as the stock markets. As the nation's financial security began to weaken the mood turned black, and it seemed that something was needed to soundtrack this.

Enter White Lies. The London group may not have had the credit crunch in mind when they wrote their debut album 'To Lose My Life' but with its epic chords and downbeat lyrics the material came to epitomise the mood in Britain during the dark months of winter.

Released to widespread acclaim,White Lies' debut album spawned the singles 'To Lose My Life' and 'Death'. The band then dropped their long player, which flew into the charts at number one.

One of the biggest debut albums of the year so far, 'To Lose Your Life' has been hugely successful. Live, the band's fans know the words to every song - even those that were only granted a limited release.

'Taxidermy' is a huge favourite with fans, often prompting singalongs when it crops up during live performances. However the track was only available as a B-side to the seven inch version of the single 'To Lose My Life.

Now White Lies have announced that they are set to release 'Taxidermy' as a download. Available right now, the track is a treat for fans ahead of a new tour.
