Newcastle trio – The Pale White – have announced a new EP ‘A New Breed’, slated for release on 20th October via AWAL, plus a run of headline UK shows this December. Listen to the explosive lead single “Validate Me” now
With its stadium-sized riffs and infectious melodies front and centre, “Validate Me” is the sound of a band breathing new life into British rock’n’roll.
“Ever felt like the world is against you? It probably is… Look around! We’re surrounded by social pressures of what is perceived as ‘normal’” say The Pale White. “”Validate Me” explores the mental tug of war between following your true purpose, and conforming to what society thinks you should be. It was born during the pandemic when we all lost our social identity and this heightened self-sabotaging paranoia was just as contagious.”
Taking their time to write, record and practise the new material, brothers Adam and Jack Hope (guitar/vocals and drums, respectively) and bassist Dave Barrow spent much of 2022 realigning themselves before a slew of European performances exemplified the reignited sparks on stage. Returning to the UK to show it off at two sold- out hometown headliners, reintroduce themselves properly and share their first music in almost two years, recent single ‘How Far Can You Push A Man?’ truly declared The Pale White’s rebirth.
With a sustainable approach to rock’n’roll uncovered, the band’s new music fires up a new era that will see them releasing music and touring through to next year, with a stretch of UK dates just confirmed for December 2023. As the band state:
“We want to prove that there are many layers to The Pale White and open up new dimensions as a band. We want to keep evolving and impressing people with each new project, continue moving forward and put out as much music as possible.”
That next step of that journey is the release of their upcoming new EP ‘A New Breed’, a self-produced collection of six songs that documents the joy of a band rediscovering their passion for music at a time when that positivity was needed most.
