Leeds, England’s HIGHER POWER have shared “Lost In Static,” a brand-new track off their Roadrunner Records debut LP, 27 Miles Underwater. “Lost In Static” is available today on all streaming platforms and is joined by an official music video directed by Callum Scott-Dyson available now on the band’s YouTube channel. 27 Miles Underwater is set to arrive worldwide on January 24th.
“Lost In Static” follows early album singles “Seamless” and “Low Season,” which arrived to critical acclaim early last year. “Higher Power’s new single is an absolute monster,” declared UPROXX who included “Seamless” in their Best New Indie Music round-up, while Billboard placed it at #6 on their 25 Best Rock & Alternative Songs of 2019 recap. The FADER included “Seamless” in their 20 Best Rock Songs Right Now list, with both REVOLVER and Brooklyn Vegan naming 27 Miles Underwater to their “Most Anticipated Albums of 2020” lists. Recommended Listen professed “Low Season” is “a two-and-half-minutes jolt of amped electricity that lets you know you aren’t stuck in darkness by yourself,” while FLOOD Magazine praised Higher Power’s “hardcore punk opus.”
Recorded with producer Gil Norton at Modern World Studios in Tetbury, England, 27 Miles Underwater follows Higher Power’s breakthrough LP, Soul Structure, which made REVOLVER’s “20 Best Albums of 2017” roundup. Pre-orders for 27 Miles Underwater are available now at all DSPs with exclusive bundles – including limited edition vinyl – available at www.higherpowerleeds.com.
Next week Higher Power will kick-off their first ever headline tour in the U.S. which is set to get underway January 20th at Phoenix, Arizona’s Nile Underground. Take Offense, Drain, Life’s Question, Queensway, and Hangman will support on select dates [full itinerary below].

Comprised of brothers Jimmy Wizard (vocals) and Alex Wizard (drums), Louis Hardy (guitar), Max Harper (guitar), and Ethan Wilkinson (bass), Higher Power quickly established themselves as a crossover force with their self-titled three-song demo in early 2015. Bucking trends and forgoing boundaries, word of the group’s NYHC inspired grooves and positive expression quickly spread throughout England. Space to Breathe, a three-song 7-inch, followed in August 2015 stacking layers of social consciousness and progressive intellect on top of the band’s trashing compositions. Higher Power’s full-length debut, Soul Structure, arrived in 2017 to critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, as their post-genre approach filtered hardcore through a sonic spectrum of funk, rap, rock and psychedelia. An unrelenting live act, Higher Power have been embraced for their euphoric performances on tours alongside Turnstile, Angel Du$t, and Knocked Loose.
