High Rise are a five piece Metalcore band hailing from South West London. Formed in 2014 the band have taken influences from bands like Underoath, The Ghost Inside and A Day to Remember to find and hone their own sound - ambient overtones with hard hitting riffs accompanied by dual vocal harmonies, creating the foundations of what High Rise are in 2017.

Following on from the success of their 2015 debut EP 'Tides Will Take You', High Rise independently released their second 5-track EP 'Left It For Everything', recorded with Dan Kerr at Avenue Studios [Our Hollow Our Home, Shields, Create to Inspire], in July 2016.

After a fantastic 2017 that saw the band play with a whole host of incredible artists including Bad Omens, Our Hollow Our Home, Create to Inspire, Vanity and Faces of Eve, as well as a well received slot on the Vocalzone Stage at Teddy Rocks Festival, and several sold out 'home town' shows in Kingston, High Rise kicked off the first quarter of 2018 with a brand new video and a UK tour with Our Hollow Our Home and Invisions, and following a week in the studio in April with Oz Craggs (Feed the Rhino) their new EP is due for release early 2019. 

The band are:

Jovic Staddon - vocals
Ricky Gurung - guitar
Tom Thain - guitar
Ryan Beckett - bass
Jon Pickard - drums


High Rise are available for UK/EU tours, one off shows and festival appearances worldwide.
