About Beautiful Lies
Drawing from the heavy power pop and garage rock of the early nineties, Beautiful Lies formed in 2006 as a product of brothers Nick and Zach McLean. Joining forces with Dave Widaman on drums and Phil Crayton on bass, the band has been notorious for its exciting live shows and yearly releases, having been reviewed as "bringing the Alt/Indie/Rock and bringing it hard."
In 2006, the band released their first recording The Acoustic EP. The following year saw the full-length debut of Words Are All We Have, which featured an eclectic mix of alternative pop and indie songs, including "Cold," "All Because of You," and "Stay Away." After its local success, Beautiful Lies crossed international waters in spring of 2008 to tour Europe, featuring shows in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Croatia, Austria, Denmark, and Slovenia. The band soon found themselves writing new material and recording their next album.
Due to popular demand, Beautiful Lies released The Untitled EP in the winter of 2008 as a download on their own website where fans could purchase for as little or as much money as they wanted. The band called it "a gift from us to the fans for all their support over the past few years." From their local support to their overseas fanbase, the band has built an incredible international community in just a few years. Beautiful Lies has now completed their long-awaited sophomore album titled Yeah, Finally to be released independently in America and on StarGazer Records in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland In June 2009.
"The energy from the crowd seemed to climax during the band's classic electric rock performance... Beautiful Lies sounds exactly like they look, strangely engaging." - Tastemakers Magazine
