THE HIGHER RETURN WITH IT'S ONLY NATURAL, OUT JUNE 23

Pop Rock Heartthrobs Announce New Album and Release Cover of 
Ne-Yo's Hit Song "Closer"

Deftly combining pop, rock and R&B, The Higher return to melt hearts this summer with the release of their sophomore album, It's Only Natural, out on June 23 via Epitaph.

Produced by Mike Green (Paramore, The Matches), It's Only Natural features twelve tracks that ooze hormones and heartbreak for a fun, sexy album that's filled with songs like the irresistibly dancey "It's Only Natural," the pool-side anthem "Undertaker" and a seductive cover of Ne-Yo's "Closer," (available for stream here) which will be wearing grooves from dance floors to backseats all summer long. Prepare to fall in love with Vegas' hottest attraction.

"I'm really excited for the release of this record," says exuberant frontman Seth Trotter. "It's gonna incorporate the same R&B/Pop vibe that The Higher always bring, and it also brings back some of the guitar and rock that the old Higher fans might miss. It's the kind of record that has songs that everyone will enjoy, no matter what kind of music you listen to."

The Higher's patented blend of unabashed pop with a life-long love of rock translates best in their suave, non-stop live show that keeps the crowds moving. The band will make hearts swoon all summer long with It's Only Natural, but fans can get a taste of what's to come on their mini-tour come May.

"You can expect us to be touring all this summer and fall and we hope to get to every fan that hasn't had the chance to see us up close and in person," adds Trotter. "Come say hi and tell me what you think. See you all soon. Pace yourself."

Awesome!

This band rocks, and I can't wait to hear the new album. I wish they were playing near me though. They need to come to St.Louis or Chicago!
