White Lies previewed material from their forthcoming second album during their show at V Festival in Stafford tonight (August 22).

The trio, who were bolstered by two live members for their 4Music Stage set, included new songs 'Holy Ghost' and 'Is Love' in their setlist.

Both tracks seemed to go down well with the audience, with the former featuring a low, repetitive vocal from frontman Harry McVeigh, while the latter had stabs of synth and a more steady, simplistic drum beat than most of the band's other songs.

McVeigh said little to the crowd during the set, though he did urge them to sing along with fan favourites 'To Lose My Life' and 'Death', and promised to "see each and every one of you very soon" before playing set-closer 'Farewell To The Fairground'.

White Lies played:

'A Place To Hide'
'Holy Ghost'
'To Lose My Life'
'Is Love'
'Unfinished Business'
'Bigger Than Us'
'Farewell To The Fairground'
