After making their North American live debut last month with a sold out East coast/Midwest run, High Vis return to North America to take over the West Coast in July for their “Waiting Patiently” Summer Tour. The tour kicks off July 28th in San Diego and routes them up the coast to Los Angeles for a performance at Sound and Fury, followed by Vancouver, Seattle, Portland and more. High Vis return in September for Chicago’s Riot Fest and Furnace Fest the following weekend.

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.
