After their sold out North American live debut back in Spring, High Vis have confirmed a Southern run in between their Riot Fest and Furnace Fest performances. They play Dallas, Austin, Houston (in partnership with CREEM Magazine and Slane Whiskey), St. Louis and New Orleans for the first time ever. They take over the West Coast for their “Waiting Patiently” Summer Tour which includes a sold out LA headliner at Lodge Room just ahead of their Sound & Fury performance this Saturday. Other highlights include San Diego, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland and more. See below for more info and a full list of dates.

In case you’ve missed it, High Vis exploded onto the DIY scene, earning a devoted following for their intense live shows and immediate lyrics that tackle themes from class politics to the challenges of everyday life. Their exceptional second full-length album, ‘Blending’ released in the Fall of last year, landed on countless end of year lists and garnered overwhelming high acclaim worldwide from the likes of Stereogum, The Fader, NME, The Guardian, NPR, BBC 6Music, Revolver, Kerrang!, Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1 and more. 

High Vis’s signature sound of aggressive, artful punk is as tough as any hardcore record, yet sonically opens beyond the parameters of any genre or scene. As the title of ‘Blending’ suggests, is about bringing all these new strands and elements into what the band are about at their core to forge something entirely new.

While Blending shows High Vis’s sound blossoming even further from their exemplary 2019 debut ‘No Sense No Feeling,’ the album represents another leap forward lyrically, too. Talking frankly about poverty and class politics, frontman Graham Sayle’s lyrics have always addressed the downtrodden and discarded communities across Britain slipping below the waterline. This time around, Sayle’s lost none of that social consciousness, but he’s looked at himself and his own emotional landscape, and in the process created something that feels more universal, that reaches a hand-out to people and ultimately gives a message of hope.
