TUNE The Pale White - Wisdom Tooth
Newcastle indie-rock trio, The Pale White issue their raucous new single ‘Wisdom Tooth’ through Illegal Cinema Records. Produced by John Martindale, ‘Wisdom Tooth’ is the first track to be released from their forthcoming EP, which will be released in November. It’s a blistering, spikey indie rock anthem in the making.
Speaking about the new single frontman Adam Hope says, “Think of ‘Wisdom Tooth’ like having a big clear out. Parting with something that you don’t exactly want to let go of, but you don’t need or isn’t good for you anymore. It’s the first offering from our new EP, which is deeper and darker then we’ve ever delved.”
‘Wisdom Tooth’ follows on from the release of singles ‘Peace of Mind’ and ‘Loveless’ earlier this year, which featured on Spotify New Music Friday and had a plethora of radio plays and online support, and their eponymous EP, which was released last September through Ignition 45’s and featured singles ‘Downer’, 'Reaction’ and 'Turn It Around’.
Prolific touring in 2017 saw them go from strength to strength having supported Twin Atlantic on their May UK Tour, The Libertines, The Sherlocks and The Amazons on their October tour as well as numerous festivals last summer including Glastonbury (BBC Introducing stage), Kendal Calling, Barn On The Farm, Neighbourhood Festival and Reading & Leeds Festival, not to mention a sold out Newcastle Riverside (800 cap) show. 2018 has been much the same with a plethora of festival dates and the band head out again on the road this autumn supporting Sea Girls on their October tour.
The emerging Newcastle band are the young men to propel rock music back to the summit. When they adopted the name The Pale White - which “alludes to the bright light people claim to see before they die” - everything fell into place. A string of demos in the shape of ‘Let You Down’ and ‘Second Place’ followed and support slots with bands like Band of Skulls, Maximo Park and more became a formality, in addition to a string of their own sold-out shows in the city.
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.”
