find Highly Suspect:
Like the billboard on the Sunset Strip says, Highly Suspect is the best fuckin’ rock band of 2015. The band had a massive year, with the Brooklyn-based 3 piece releasing their debut record, “Mister Asylum” which picked up 2x GRAMMY nominations for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Album.
Following their September performance and late night debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers, the band last night made their return to network television, performing “Bloodfeather” on CONAN. Never ones to go quietly, the band’s frontman, Johnny Stevens called out Trump in the opening moments of the performance, pleading to America for “anyone but Trump.”
Produced by Joel Hamilton (The Black Keys, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), “Mister Asylum” was released in July 2015 to critical praise from FADER, Consequence Of Sound, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Blackbook and many more. The album’s first single, Lydia has been a staple at Radio for over 30 weeks crossing over to Alternative. The controversial video for “Lydia” also premiered on-air and online with MTV2 and racking up millions of views on YouTube. “Lydia” has also amassed over ten million streams on Spotify and sold over a hundred thousand tracks.
With an electrifying live show, the Grammy nominated band has kept busy on the road, touring non-stop with acts like Catfish And The Bottlemen, playing Bonnaroo for the first time and now headlining a nearly sold-out tour. The band are headed to the UK for more dates with Halestorm, which will be followed by a tour to Australia for a string of shows in March.
