Aqualung release ‘Easier To Lie’, the second single to be taken from their universally acclaimed album ‘Still Life’, on March 8th via B-Unique. The ‘Easier To Lie’ single is the remix by Mike ‘Spike’ Stent (Oasis, U2) as featured on the recently repackaged version of ‘Still Life.’
Described by Aqualung singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Matt Hales as a song about “how hard it is to be good”, ‘Easier To Lie’ is an immediately memorable song full of raw emotion. Grand and imposing, ‘Easier To Lie’ is classic-pop in the best of traditions.
Aqualung’s self-titled debut album was released in 2002 following the massive hit ‘Strange and Beautiful (I’ll Put A Spell On You)’. With sales in excess of 200,000, the success of the album put Hales on the musical map and marked him out as one of Britain’s strongest emerging songwriter. The follow-up, ‘Still Life’, was released last Autumn winning the praise of critics from the specialist music press through to the broadsheets, as well as spawning the Top 40 single ‘Brighter Than Sunshine’.
Aqualung have announced their first full-band headline tour since the release of their current universally praised B-Unique album ‘Still Life.’ The dates will follow hot on the heels of Matt and Ben Hales’ duo tour of intimate and unusual venues that began in January.
