A five piece Hardcore band based in New York. Since their 2008 demo release, Backtrack released a string of 7inches, one full-length, and toured the globe relentlessly alongside the likes of H20, Terror, Comeback Kid, Expire, Cold World, Trapped Under Ice, and pretty much every notable hardcore band you can think of. They’ve played every fest, every basement, and everywhere in between as one of the hardest working bands in underground music.
Hardcore punk from Leeds. Visually, they are an imposing bunch, but in reality they just really love dogs. They are graffiti artists, brothers, they are creative and hysterically funny, and they are trying to open up a genre of music that terrifies most listeners.
Higher Power’s hardcore is about positive expression of aggression and a form of escapology. It is angry music - but lyrically they convey a lot about themselves as people. It’s about finding a positive outlet for their anger, whether it's social issues or mental health, adding a social consciousness and depth to the genre.
'Classic NYHC crossover, with a touch of Jane's Addiction and a whole mess of streetwise British swagger thrown in for good measure'
