Following the release of their new single “Checkpoint Charlie” earlier this year, High Visions have returned with another new single, “When I’m Dead, Just Throw Me In The Trash.”
“The song’s about feeling disillusioned about where we are in the music scene, feeling like we’re going nowhere, and how that’s been impacting our mental health,” bassist/vocalist Zyggy says about the meaning behind the track, “[The] fear of missing out – on opportunities, on life, on being content as people.”
About High Visions:
Combining bombastic double-time beats, memorable choruses, and introspective lyrics with a DIY attitude and work ethic, High Visions are the hybrid pop-meets-skate-punk band you never knew you were waiting for.
Formed in a nightclub toilet in Leeds, the band have successfully blended the catchy modern pop punk sound of today, with the fast gritty sound of late ’90s skate punk and post-hardcore. The three-piece recorded their sophomore EP ‘Passerby’ with Dom Wright (Creeper, Gnarwolves) in 2018 and followed it up by bringing their no-holds-barred live show around the country with them.
Where sing-alongs meet screams, and where the crowd becomes the stage, High Visions have
performed over 50 energetic live shows both in the UK and mainland Europe, alongside acts such as Mallory Knox, Death by Stereo, Blood Youth and Allusinlove, and show no signs of slowing down. With a third EP on the way, High Visions are not a name to miss out on.
High Visions are:
Louis Flynn – Guitar/Vocals
