A Worthing rock group are on their way to stardom and success after releasing their first UK single and heading on tour.
High Tyde, a rock and electronic group, is made up of Connor, Spencer, Cody and Louis, four boys from Worthing.
The four met at a number of music workshops, and were originally part of two different groups, before merging when they realised they had similar music styles.
The group released their debut EP last week.
Their first single ‘Dark Love’, entered the iTunes charts at No. 20.
They have also had plays on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.
Ryan Gorringe, 26, band manager, met the boys when they hired his recording studio for some sessions, and discovered they worked well together.
Ryan, of Larch Close, Rustington, said: “They are all very talented musicians so we combined our skills, and so far they are doing very well.
“This is their first tour. We sold out in London, and the boys were on a complete high the whole time and it has just been brilliant. I can’t wait to get back out on the road with them.
“My background is I was in a heavy metal band with moderate success, and we toured Scandinavia and supported Bring Me The Horizon, then I broke into recording because I wanted to support other musicians, and I loved working with other bands and creating different types of music.”
This is the group’s first UK tour, and Ryan said he has loved every minute of it.
He added: “There was six of us on tour, including the tour manager Joe. We had the best laugh, and I can’t tell you how good it feels to be out on the road, seeing different things and meeting different people every day. It has been amazing.
“I have to add, my mum’s been amazing in supporting me and the band, and I hope she’s happy with what I am doing. She has always been supportive of us.”
‘Dark Love’ is available to purchase now from iTunes, while High Tyde are on tour until April 29, where the band’s final show will take place at the Brighton Haunt.
Tickets are available now, through the group’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/wearehightyde, where more information about them can also be found.
