London trio Real Lies are on the home straight, their debut album ‘Real Life’ finally entering the world this Friday. Ahead of that, though, you can stream it in full below.
Hugely 90s inspired, ‘Real Life’ sashays between New Order aping oscillating synths and the kind of downtrodden social commentary that made Mike Skinner a household name.
The band are due to head off on a UK headline run starting next week, before joining Foals on their “intimate” (if you say so, lads) tour next month - full dates as follows:
19 Brighton, Green Door Store
20 London, Electrowerkz
22 Birmingham, Hare & Hounds 2
23 Leeds, Beacons Metro
25 Manchester, Soup Kitchen
05 Nottingham, Rock City (w/ Foals)
06 Liverpool, Olympia (w/ Foals)
07 Norwich, UEA (w/ Foals)
