Bursting with old-school NYHC groove and West Coast crossover, HIGHER POWER’s Soul Structure LP is about positive expression of aggression and a form of escapology. It is angry music – but lyrically they convey a lot about themselves as people. It’s about finding a positive outlet for their anger, whether it’s social issues or mental health, it’s adding a social consciousness and depth to what traditionally is quite a one-dimensional genre of music. The album was recorded by Misha Hering at Holy Mountain, with vocals recorded by James Atkinson at Mutiny Studios. The album was mixed by Arthur Rizk at Salomons Gate (Power Trip, Mizery, War Hungry) and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), and features artwork by Sam Bailey.
HIGHER POWER kicked off a new tour advancing the new LP, with a string of dates supporting hardcore heavyweights Terror and Born From Pain across Europe. Immediately following the week-long tour, the band is se to play Imericon Fest, with a set at Outbreak fest taking place at the end of the month.
