The group will traverse NZ playing Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington shows, performing crowd favourites from across their discography and cuts from their latest record The Midnight Demon Club, released in late 2022.

Never content to follow, Highly Suspect push rock music forward by trusting their instincts and raising a middle finger to everything else. The multi-Grammy® Award-nominated and multiple gold-certified band don’t just talk about burning the rules and breaking the mould; they actually do.

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 diehard global fanbase 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 and was certified platinum by RMNZ.

The 2016 gold-certified follow-up The Boy Who Died Wolf roared to life with the platinum-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 gold-certified MCID album affirmed them as the rare outfit who could collaborate with Young Thug and Gojira on the same record. Loudwire hailed the latter among the “50 Best Rock Albums of 2019.”

Highly Suspect have had an astounding 12 x Top 5 Rock Radio Chart hits, with Bloodfeather; Lydia and the gold-certified Little One all taking out the #1 spot on the Rock Radio Singles chart. Other top radio tracks include their third NZ platinum-certified single 16, and gold-certifications for both Canals and Seratonia, with the band spending an impressive total of 349 weeks inside the charts across all their singles.

With hundreds of millions of streams and sold out shows on multiple continents, Highly Suspect charge ahead of the pack again on 2022’s The Midnight Demon Club with no compromises and no apologies as they challenge rock to be dangerous and maybe even life-changing again.
