Highly Suspect release 'Mister Asylum'

posted Jul 20, 2015, 12:22 AM by Vu Nguyen
Highly Suspect, the Brooklyn (via Cape Cod) band have already had quite a year--having recently toured with Catfish And The Bottlemen, playing Bonnaroo for the first time and finding early success at Active Rock Radio where their first single, “Lydia” is Top 10 and crossing to Alternative. The band’s music has also garnered significant praise from FADER, Rolling Stone Magazine, Billboard, and many more.  

In May 2014, Johnny Stevens, (guitars/lead vocals) along with twins, Rich, (bass/vocals) and Ryan Meyer (drums) signed to 300 Entertainment, a recently formed independent boutique label co-founded by Lyor Cohen, Todd Moscowitz, Kevin Liles and Roger Gold. With over 850 shows under their belts and having supported the likes of My Morning Jacket and Grizzly Bear, the band's incendiary live show immediately won the label over.

Coming off a successful SXSW, Highly Suspect was hand-picked by iTunes for their 2015 New Artist Spotlight Program which launched in mid-March as “Lydia” impacted radio. As the “Lydia” began to gain listens, Highly Suspect found early support in the blogosphere with “Lydia” charting on Hype Machine and building looks on sites/blogs like Consequence of Sound, Clash Magazine, Earmilk, NYLON, Blackbook, Entertainment Weekly, Indie Shuffle, and The Wild Honey Pie. Along the way, Highly Suspect drew the biggest audience to date at Lollapalooza’s BMI Stage.
