Norwegian quintet Highasakite will be visiting American next month for SXSW and will be stopping in NYC on the return trip, playing Mercury Lounge on March 20 (tickets) and Glasslands on March 21 (tickets). The band also hits Los Angeles, and all dates are listed below.
Highasakite will release their In and Out of Weeks EP on March 5 and lead track, "Son of a Bitch," is worth checking out. A little moody, a little folky, but not in the way, say, Of Monsters and Men fit that description. There's a more personality going on here and you can stream it below.
