White Lies
White Lies will begin writing new material in 2010

White Lies have confirmed they won't be writing any new material 'until early 2010'.

A hectic touring schedule, combined with difficulties writing on the road, mean fans won't hear fresh songs for another 12 months.

The band released number 1 album To Lose My Life in January.

Leadsinger Harry McVeigh said: "Me and Charles [Cave, bass] when we start writing the very basics of a song we need to be in the comfort of my home."

New material

Having just completed a month long tour with Friendly Fires in America the band will now play a strong of festivals including T In The Park, Latitude and Reading And Leeds.

"Unfortunately we are very very busy touring a lot this year," said McVeigh. "We're not a band who can write on the road.

"In early 2010 I think we'll try and get back into my house and sit at my keyboard and write some new stuff."

White Lies release new single Death on 22 June.
