Highly Suspect have announced a UK and EU headline tour for 2023 including a Manchester gig at the O2 Ritz.

The gig at Manchester’s O2 Ritz is one of seven UK dates they are playing in September 2023.  The UK leg of Highly Suspect’s Midnight Demon Club Tour will open at Glasgow’s SWG3 Galvanizers before closing at Bristol’s O2 Academy.

News of the tour comes as Highly Suspect open their run supporting Muse on their US tour which also features special guests Evanescence.

Highly Suspect’s upcoming live dates will see them celebrating their latest album The Midnight Demon Club which landed in September.  The album features latest single New California, complete with a video following skateboarders amongst a series of Californian backdrops directed by Steele Pace and Haden McKenna.

The three-time Grammy Award-nominated band kicked off the album campaign with lead single Natural Born Killer which hit number one at Active Rock radio and is accompanied by an Andrew Sandler directed official music video. The Midnight Demon Club is also highlighted by the singles Ice Cold and Pink Lullabye. The album finds Highly Suspect at a turning point. Produced by Highly Suspect and WZRD BLD, the 12-track album is a truth driven narrative featuring metallic exorcism and hip-hop-induced beat-craft. Stoned musings about a world on the brink of destruction ride over gorgeously uneasy orchestration and vocal transmissions that drip with sadness, longing, rage, and confidence all at once.
