Highly Suspect Bringing “Summertime Voodoo” To The USA With Intimate Shows And More

Highly Suspect Announces New LP, 

Shares "Summertime Voodoo" Single + Visualizer


The band’s chemically imbalanced mix of gritty guitars, haunting piano, off-kilter synths, hip-hop production, cinematic vision, and beautifully possessed vocals transformed them into a phenomenon beloved by a die hard global fan base known as “MCID”  [My Crew Is Dope]. After grinding it out as an underground curiosity, they scraped a path to mainstream infamousness with their 2015 full-length debut, Mister Asylum. It earned a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Rock Album” as the single “Lydia” received a nomination for “Best Rock Song” was certified gold by the RIAA.


The 2016 follow-up, The Boy Who Died Wolf, roared to life with the gold-selling “My Name Is Human,” which catapulted to #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart and garnered a GRAMMY® Nomination for “Best Rock Song. 2019’s MCID affirmed them as the rare outfit who could collaborate with Young Thug and Gojira on the same album. Loudwire hailed the latter among the “50 Best Rock Albums of 2019.” 


 Now the bands next venture is a small tour of intimate shows with a celebration of a new LP “As Above, So Below “ out July 19 via Roadrunner/300/Elektra with the newest release “Summertime Voodoo” giving us a taste through the looking glass of what’s to be expected on this new record of theirs.


Johnny Stevens [vocals, guitar], Ryan Meyer [drums, vocals], Rich Meyer [bass, vocals], Matt Kofos[guitar], and Mark Schwartz [keyboards/guitars] make up this creatively intriguing band and released a statement for the new single and album.


If my life is a book, then this album is the first chapter that truly addresses the central conflict," says Johnny Stevens. "The recognition of an ego, the problems its caused - and the birth of its death. “As Above, So Below.” If I’m being real, I hit rock bottom again. After another close call with death, I feel wide awake. I don’t know how the book ends yet, but I’m very engaged in the plot now. I’d rather it not end at all.


For the past few years I don’t think I gave a shit one way or the other. Like Thom once said - “for a minute there I lost myself.” - “Summertime Voodoo” is the introductory paragraph to this chapter.


We didn’t know which song to put out first, so this time, instead of trying to guess which one sounds most like a single, we just decided it makes the most sense to start at the top of the story."


These highly anticipated shows promise to be electrifying experiences, as the band will play the entire As Above, So Below LP from front to back at these intimate shows.
