7 Insanely Good Highly Suspect Songs
They're easily becoming one of the hottest rock bands on the planet, and now we bring you a selection of songs that have thrown Highly Suspect into the limelight. Oh, and they've already received three GRAMMY nominations in the last 18 months – how about that for a CV? We Highly Suspect that this trio will be heading to the top of your Most Played playlist…
The song that shot them into the airwaves in America and across the pond to us, where they spent many weeks refusing to leave the Kerrang! Rock Chart. Along with a bazillion plays on radio, this song also gatecrashed the GRAMMY nominations in 2016 as the band were up for Best Rock Song, only losing out to Alabama Shakes.
6. My Name Is Human
A year later and yet another GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Rock Song. If Highly Suspect aren't your favourite rock band by the end of this list then can you really call yourself a rock fan? These guys already have three GRAMMY nominations to their name and they've only released two albums. My Name Is Human? More like My Name Is Megastars...
If you love blood, gore, the Wild Wild West and watching frontman Johnny Stevens being punched in the face, then the video to Bloodfeather is definitely for you. We like how the punch sounds run perfectly in time with the drum patterns. Johnny is so tough that a beating like this will never stop him…
Over 2.5 million people have watched the video to this on YouTube… think about that for a second. That's more people than the population of over 50 countries on the planet, including the likes of Slovenia, Botswana and Estonia. Maybe we should set up our own nation for Highly Suspect – that's a lot of rock fans!
3. Bath Salts
Warning: do not think you can throw this song in the bath and have a lovely time. You will get electrocuted. Either way, Bath Salts is a straight-up rock'n'roll rager that you would expect to find on a whisky advert. Crank up your bluetooth speakers to 11!
Could this be about the terrible ending of Lost? We think not, because this song is far too good to be about that horrendous finale. Instead, get lost underneath the spell of their riffs, as the American rockers send you into a groovy trance with this one. *Waves arms above head*
Angry, venomous and a chorus that '70s Black Sabbath could be proud of. Here the trio unleash their inner-rock Gods to produce a song that deserves the upmost respect, so play it loud and let them take you to Claudeland – wherever the hell that might be…
