The 3-times Grammy Award nominated Cape Cod rockers HIGHLY SUSPECT consisting of twin brothers Rich Meyer (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Ryan Meyer (drums, backing vocals), with Johnny Stevens (guitar, lead vocals), and Matt Kofos (guitar, synthesizer, backing vocals) will return to the UK this spring to play a full tour in March, starting on the 16th at SWX in Bristol, passing through a sold out Electric Ballroom in Camden, London on the 18th, with follow up sold out dates in Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester [dates below video.]
The band creates a natural convergence of indie blues and grunge rock, with flourishing melodic lines and vocal ornaments. . . but there is also the kind of raw truth that was once found in “In Utero” (1993) along with some highly polished, electric rock flourishes.
Their new release “Fly” — the lead-track from last year’s M.C.I.D. album [My Crew Is Dope] — offers a sincere analysis of the individualized nature of confronting and responding to mental health. It has a polygraphic rhythm, unpretentious lyrics and silverized chorus that beckons a brightened sense of self-forgiveness.
The band has a hugely involved fan base, with more than 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify. The main single from the second studio album “The Boy Who Died Wolf” titled “My Name Is Human” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and stayed there for eight week
