Alt-rock favorites and Gojira buddies Highly Suspect have announced their highly anticipated fourth full-length, The Midnight Demon Club, and unveiled two new songs, hooky lead single "Natural Born Killer," which arrived with a surreal music video, and its heavier counterpart "Pink Lullabye." The Midnight Demon Club is due out September 9th via Roadrunner Records/FRKST (pre-order it here). Stream the songs above and below.
Vocalist-guitarist Johnny Stevens, a.k.a. "Terrible Johnny," commented of "Natural Born Killer": "I'm always fighting for my place out here in this world. And there are two mindsets one could have — rollover and mope about the hard shit or just be a motherfucking life beast and smash all your challenges at hand. And if you're really a badass, have fun doing it. That's the flow. That's the essence of being a natural born killer."
Of the album writ large, he added, "Life comes at you fast. We are constantly reminded of this, and perhaps no greater occurrence will spark the imagination more than the death of a loved one. In my experience, it's during these moments of processing great loss that the mind is completely focused on 'what if's' as we try and escape what is. The Midnight Demon Club is about becoming the best version of yourself after tragedy, so it's a second chance on life with a happier mindset. The Midnight Demon Club is all about having fun and keeping it moving. Because as we all know, this life is way too short."
