Highly Suspect release new single ‘The Blue-Eyed Devil’ ahead of album release

The new song may sound familiar if you were at any of Highly Suspect’s New Zealand gigs.

Highly Suspect have released a second song from their forthcoming album, ‘As Above, So Below’ - and it’s a ripper.

The new song, called ‘The Blue-Eyed Devil,’ may sound familiar if you were at any of Highly Suspect’s New Zealand gigs, as we were treated to it before the rest of the world. In fact, they dedicated it as “New Zealand’s song” before debuting it for us at every show around our country.

Last night (June 18), the new tune arrived, and fans are already loving it. 

“I love the musical range of Highly Suspect 100%. But this takes me back to the 1st album in some parts and I dig it. Stoked for the full album,” wrote one fan.

“This is like the spiritual successor to ATL and I fucking love it!!!! I missed this bluesy jam, I am so fuckin ready for this album,” another echoed.

‘The Blue-Eyed Devil’ comes as the second single off the forthcoming album, following ‘Summertime Voodoo’ which was released last month, and also debuted at the band’s NZ shows. 

Frontman Johnny Stevens said ‘As Above, So Below’ is set to be an album that tells a story of “the recognition of ego, the problem it’s caused, and the birth of its death.”

“If my life is a book, then this album is the first chapter that truly addresses the central conflict,” he said. 

‘As Above, So Below’ drops July 19th. Have a hoon of the new tune up top.
