High Vis drop new single

 London band High Vis releases their new single "Mob DLA" today via Dais Records, their first release of 2024. "Mob DLA" offers a first look at the band's upcoming album, which will be released later this year.

High Vis singer Graham Sayle speaks about the significance of "Mob DLA":

"Years of public service cuts have had a devastating impact on communities across the UK. People are forced to justify their need and undergo inhumane tests to verify their entitlement to support for often lifelong disabilities. Marginalised communities are left to fend for themselves and vilified in the media through targeted smear campaigns. This is happening against a backdrop of ever-increasing bonuses and salaries for the political and industrial elite and their friends. I have experienced this in my own family and felt the stress and anxiety of people simply trying to find their place in an increasingly hostile world. Despite the ongoing neglect, I have witnessed the power of community action."

The latest single comes ahead of a series of festival appearances around the globe this summer, including the Hurricane Festival in Germany, after the band recently completed sold-out headline tours here too and are generally one of the most exciting rock bands in recent history.

Since their formation in 2016, the band High Vis have refined their progressive hardcore sound by incorporating elements of post-punk, Britpop, neo-psychedelia and even Madchester grooves. In doing so, they have found a balance between catchy melodies and angry energy, between harmonies and mosh pits. In 2019, High Vis released their debut album "No Sense No Feeling", which broadened the horizons of the hardcore veterans and shaped their self-described "post-industrial Britain misery punk".

The acclaimed follow-up album, 2022's Blending, features tracks like "Talk For Hours" and "Trauma Bonds." Not only does it expand High Vis' sonic range, but it also lets singer Sayle reflect on social and political ills in his lyrics while giving listeners a message of hope.
