Pull out your wallet, because the Grammy-nominated Pop-punk trio, Highly Suspect has just released their lineup to their follow-up tour kicking off in Tucson, Arizona on March 26th. After the release of their 2016 sophomore album "The Boy Who Died Wolf," this tour is definitely going to be one that you don't want to miss out on! 

The Brooklyn Indie-Rock group has scored chart toppers with their gritty rock vibes and and synthesized features. Lead Singer Johnny Stevens provides a different twist on vocals where you can feel the emotion and passion in his throat. The Meyer twins complete the trio with drums, base and back up vocals, with Rich killing the bass and Ryan keeping things together on the drums.

I first heard of Highly Suspect, when their single "Lydia" (Mister Asylum) popped up on my Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify and it was an instant add to one of my personal playlists. It was about a year ago and I can remember that I was definitely listening to a lot from Royal Blood and Nothing But Thieves, so I was seriously so thankful that the creativity behind Spotify picked such an amazing song for my Discover Weekly playlist.

The group has also rocked themselves onto other popular playlists on Spotify, such as, "Rock This," "Totally Alternative," "Rock Me Up!," "Beer and Wings," and even a specifically articulated Spotify sponsored playlist for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. Speaking of the Grammy's, the trio is up for their third Grammy nomination and you can see them compete against David Bowie, Twenty One Pilots, RadioHead and Metallica for the "Best Rock Song" Grammy Award, with their tune, " My Name is Human" off of their most recent album.

Wow, what an achievement this group of guys has two complete albums ("Mister Asylum", "The Boy Who Died Wolf") and a growing 180,000+ followers on Spotify. To take things back they completed several successful sold-out shows at their many global, national and regional tours. They've performed on the Late Night with Seth Meyers and Conan. They've even made lineup appearances at smaller music festivals, but on the other hand had the opportunity to play at Bonnaroo in 2015! You can catch them at Atlanta's Shaky Knees Festival this summer from May 12-15, and may I add, the lineup is phenomenal this year. 

Highly Suspect has not only scored chart toppers with their latest album, but they've secured a few more tour dates into the spring and summer months! You can catch the guys at the Manchester Hall in  Lexington, KY on Thursday, April 20th. For more information on further tour dates and stops, you can look at their website!
