Newcastle, UK trio The Pale White have released their debut single “Reaction” through Ignition 45’s. The band features brothers Adam (guitar/vocals) and Jack Hope (drums), as well as bassist Tom Booth. Though Adam, 23, and Tom, 25, have been fixtures on the music scene for over half a decade now, it was only upon Adam’s return from London to Newcastle in March 2015 that the band took shape. First recruiting younger brother Jack, 18, to start the group and demo some of his songs, the group was later completed by long time friend Tom. Adam credits “Reaction”, a track written in his bedroom – as “the blueprint of what we are”.

Born and raised in the North East, the trio are proud of their origins, but are beginning to see the bigger picture. “Being from somewhere like this is more important than being a small fish in a big pond. We’ve got the potential to break out of the city where no one’s done anything for a while.”

With another two singles lined up for release, the band are trying to plan a few steps ahead – while keeping things as “spontaneous” as possible. Festivals, an EP and more singles all amount to a potential album in mid-2018. The Pale White will be supporting High Tyde on tour in March. All dates below.
