    The Pale White are a Newcastle based Alternative Rock band.
    Comprising of brothers Adam (lead vocals, guitar) and Jack Hope (drums) and long time friend Tom Booth (bass), the group first came together when Adam returned home from London to the North East armed with a handful of demos and a fierce determination to start a band. Things very quickly took shape when the band adopted the name, which - "alludes to the bright light people claim to see before they die", aptly reflecting the dark streak that runs through the bands sound. With early support slots opening for Maximo Park and Band of Skulls in their hometown, sold out headline shows soon became a formality, with the band graduating from venue to bigger venue across the city and developing a solid word of mouth following.

    Early 2017 heralded the release of debut single 'Reaction', a thumping slice of Josh Homme influenced blues rock produced by rock stalwart Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters). The boys introduction to the world packed a mighty bark with a bite to match and saw the track selected as Radio 1 Introducing Track of the Week. With strong support from BBC Introducing, the band played the Introducing Stage at Glastonbury 2017 and appeared at Reading & Leeds Festival. Alongside high profile nods from the BBC, the band have been praised by NME, Radio X, MTV and have received massive backing from Spotify (with nearly 4 million streams as of January 2018).

    Throughout a busy 2017, which saw the release of singles 'Turn It Around' and 'Downer', the group opened for the likes of The Libertines, Madness and The Sherlocks and supported both Twin Atlantic and The Amazons on full UK tours. Rounding 2017 off with a string of rapturously received headline shows around the country in support of their debut EP, the tour culminated in a sold out show in their hometown of Newcastle in front of 700 fans.

    With new release 'Loveless' on the horizon, the bands profile seems set to rise further. Lyrically the most mature of the bands output to date, the song showcases more of the thunderous rhythm and inventive guitar work that the band are beginning to be known for. The shot to the arm British rock needs right now could come sooner, rather than later.

    "Every once in a while a new band comes along that raises the bar for emerging artists. The Pale White are (arguably) the UK's best new band right now." - Crack in the Road

    "Mean guitars and clattering drums. Newcastle's next great band and one of UK rock's most thrilling newcomers." - NME

    "Great British guitar music is on the rise again and these lads are a rather tasty prospect to watch very closely." - Record of the Day
