London’s High Vis shared their new single “Mob DLA” via Dais Records, 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.

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.”

The latest single precedes a string of festival performances around the globe this summer, 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.
