1 min read

Leeds, England’s HIGHER POWER have released their Roadrunner Records debut LP, 27 Miles Underwater, which is available today on all streaming platforms [album art / tracklist below]. Recorded with producer Gil Norton at Modern World Studios in Tetbury, England, 27 Miles Underwater is highlighted by early singles “Seamless,” “Low Season,” and “Lost In Static.”

“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.”

Higher Power will continue their first ever U.S. headline tour tonight, January 24th at Sacramento, California’s The Colony. Take Offense, Drain, Life’s Question, Queensway, and Hangman are supporting Higher Power on select dates of the tour. Following the U.S. run Higher Power will head to Europe for a string of dates supporting Beartooth and The Amity Affliction, which begin February 16th in Stuttgart, Germany.

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.
