California rock giants HIGH ON FIRE will kick off their European headlining trek on July 24 in Tilburg, NL and run through August 9 in London, England.


Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, HIGH ON FIRE create modern heavy metal that merges primal fury and aggression, hesher bombast and hall of fame heaviness. Described as “a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume,” HIGH ON FIRE have rewritten the hard rock rule book since its formation in 1998, forging a style and sound that is both critically celebrated and absolutely unique.


The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike — also a founding member of the famed underground band SLEEP — along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff Matz.


HIGH ON FIRE are currently working on their new, as-yet-untitled studio album. A winter 2015 tentative release date via Century Media Records (Europe/UK) and eOne (North America) is expected for the new LP, the follow-up to 2012’s De Vermis Mysteriis, their most recent studio album.
