Like the billboard on the Sunset Strip says, Highly Suspect is the best fuckin' rock band of 2015....and 2016 too, for that matter. The 300 Entertainment recording act is one of the music industry’s most exciting artist development stories. 2015 saw them release their critically praised debut album Mister Asylum and also launch their debut single, “Lydia�. Not content to rest after touring non-stop since their album's release, the band is currently in Bogata, Columbia recording their eagerly anticipated follow-up to their debut album with producer Joel Hamilton. They'll hit the road immediately after wrapping up recording.

Produced by Joel Hamilton (The Black Keys, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), Mister Asylum was released in July 2015 to critical praise from FADER, Consequence Of Sound, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Blackbook and many more. The album's first single Lydia has been a staple at Radio for over 30 weeks crossing over to Alternative.

Throughout that time, the band has been on the road non-stop opening for Catfish And The Bottlemen, playing Bonnaroo for the first time and now headlining a nearly sold-out tour. They also made their network television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers last September, as well as a performance on CONAN this past January.
