High Tyde – The Deaf Institute, Manchester (13th Mar 2017)

You may have heard of High Tyde from various support slots over the past year including; The Hunna, Little Comets & Peace. Now they are back with a 4 date headline tour of their own along with the new single ‘Keep On’.

Opening support act Indigo Husk played a brilliant short but sweet set to get the crowd going. With their recently released debut EP ‘Itchy’, the London based 4 piece are in for the time of their lives this year! Featuring grungy vocals, heavy punk guitar riffs and high energy throughout; this is a band to keep your eyes on over the next few months. Following this tour, Indigo Husk will be playing a headline show at London’s Camden Assembly as well as various festival slots over the summer.

Next up was The Pale White, having just released ‘Deceiver’ the B side to their debut single ‘Reaction’, the trio are preparing themselves for a huge year! Hailing from Newcastle, the band bring a fresh sound to indie rock – with raw vocals not too dissimilar from early Alex Turner, heavy rock ’n’ roll guitar riffs and percussion that’ll blow your socks off. Expect to be seeing a lot more from The Pale White over the coming months. The lads head off to support The Amazons at their Manchester gig next month, along with a support slot on Twin Atlantic’s UK tour and a bunch of festivals throughout the summer. 

Headliners High Tyde always bring so much energy to the stage, which relays instantly to the audience. They opened with the new single ‘Keep On’, and from the crowds reaction it’s going to be one of their best yet. Featuring the classic High Tyde feel we’ve come to adore, the new track has a heavier vibe with fiery vocals, rip roaring bass lines, booming drums, and raw guitar riffs. From the artwork and lyric video to the new single, we can see this aesthetically pleasing band are venturing into a new era. Leaving the neon pinks and purples behind for clean cut white, block colours, and intriguing lines – we can only wait and see what they have in store following this tour. 

Being the first night of the tour at one of Manchester’s best small venues, The Deaf Institute, the sold out crowd certainly set the bar high. With frontman Cody Matthews saying, ‘northern crowds are always so much better than down south.’ Although the lead singer/bass player could definitely get an audience going anywhere; creating multiple mosh pits throughout their set.

High Tyde performed some of their biggest hits; ‘Speak’, ‘One Bullet, and ‘Talk To Frank’ as well as a few new tracks. And from the sound of them, they’re certainly album ready songs that the crowd couldn’t get enough of! Could their debut album be on the horizon? We can only hope! 

Closing the set with their most popular song ‘Dark Love’ and staying to meet all the fans after the gig; High Tyde are without doubt going to be one of THE bands of 2017.
