New Album MCID Out Now Ft. Young Thug, Tee Grizzley, GOJIRA

The first single off newest album MCID and a track currently at #1 on Rock Radio, "16", has received a passionate, emotion-provoking music video. "16" is a song about love and heartbreak, unique to the rock scene with not a single guitar on the track. No other song has reached #1 on Rock Radio void of guitars in the last 30 years. MCID holds three charting positions including being #2 on the Alternative Chart, #5 on Top Current Rock Albums chart, and #14 Top Current Albums.

The music video recreates lead singer Johnny Stevens' story of his relationship that began at the age of sixteen. Visually showcasing the lyrics of first loves and instant heartbreak, "16" is relatable to more than just HIGHLY SUSPECT fans. Johnny commented on the video coming to life, "I'm known for having a lot to say about things, sometimes too much... this time I'm just gonna let the film and song do the talking for me. I already laid out as much pain as I can bare, no more words. Enjoy."

Watch the video on KNAC.COM HERE.

The lyrics describe the true story of lead singer Johnny Stevens falling in love at sixteen years old, fostering a relationship for seven years, and feeling elated when she told him she was pregnant with their baby. The song describes his instant devastation the moment of the birth when he found out that the baby wasn't his, the baby was a different race. Though a wild story, the lyrics capture the gut-wrenching feeling of first love lost, betrayal, and regret. This is a song about heartbreak in the worst way you can possibly imagine.

HIGHLY SUSPECT released their anticipated album MCID, earlier this month in the midst of their current headline tour and upcoming 27 city North American Headline Tour, and European Tour. MCID follows HIGHLY SUSPECT's 2016 sophomore album The Boy Who Died Wolf and showcases 16 songs total, including tracks "Canals", "16" and "Upperdrugs".

The sonically integrated MCID is not just the third full-length project from three guys who approach the rock genre with a hip hop ethos, but it’s a family meeting and an apology from singer Johnny Stevens whose lyrics demand accountability from himself and urge him to be more honest to conquer the demons that made him who he is. With stories of heartbreak and hope, it’s not surprising that his most vulnerable collection of songs is addressed directly to his chosen family, his followers, and his comrades. The intensity of MCID, showcases the transparency and emotion of HIGHLY SUSPECT, making it an album for the ages.
