High Vis shares their new single “Mob DLA” via Dais Records today, marking their first offering of 2024. Laced with a street punk energy and mentality, “Mob DLA” is the first taste of the band’s forthcoming album slated for release later this year. The track arrives ahead of festival performances around the world, including Hurricane Festival in Germany, Hellfest in France, Glastonbury in the UK, Louder Than Life in Kentucky, Aftershock in California, Mondra & Roll in Spain, and more. High Vis will also be accompanying Speed for a run of shows in Australia this August and September alongside Pain of Truth and Fuse.

Speaking about the meaning behind “Mob DLA,” High Vis vocalist Graham Sayle shares:

“The years upon years of public service cuts have had a devastating human effect on communities in the UK. People are forced to justify their need for assistance, made to endure dehumanizing tests in order to monitor their eligibility for support for often lifelong disabilities. Marginalized communities are left to fend for themselves then vilified in targeted media smear campaigns. This is all happening in the shadow of ever increasing bonuses and salaries for the political and industrial elite and their friends. I have seen this in my own family. The stress and anxiety of people simply trying to find space in a world which increasingly feels designed against them is palpable. And through it all, I’ve seen the power of community action in the face of sustained neglect.”

High Vis released their debut album No Sense No Feeling, in 2019 which broadened the scope of the hardcore veterans beyond scene while creating self-described “post-industrial-Britain misery punk.” The celebrated follow up, 2022’s Blending includes the tracks “Talk For Hours” and “Trauma Bonds” and not only expands upon the sonic breadth of High Vis, but vocalist Sayle opened his chest cavity through his lyrics discussing social issues and political miseries while reaching a hand out to folks listening to give a message of hope.
