"Arena-filling hard rock with a soulful, techy sheen"
Metal Hammer Magazine

HighView, the arena-scale, genre-redefining, hard rock juggernaut from Canberra, Australia have just completed a massive 2018 and are focused on stepping it up a gear in 2019 with new music and many more shows. The band blends hard rock sensibilities with layered and atmospheric electronic elements, creating a sound that drives rock music into the future.

"Takes power rock to the next level with the perfect blend of technicality and emotion"

2018 saw the release of their second EP “Aftermind”, the release of the singles “Simple Life”, “Animal” and “Contained” all with music videos, a well received Australian tour, plus support slots for Dead Letter Circus, In Hearts Wake, Trophy Eyes, COG and more. The band received significant local and international press coverage, including a full page feature in Metal Hammer Magazine, with the track “Simple Life” included on their New Noise compilation.

HighView was originally established in 2015 as a collaborative project developed by Canberra vocalist Matt Faulkner. Utilising a large stockpile of riffs, lyrics and beats Matt had been developing quietly in the studio and drawing influence from rock acts such as Breaking Benjamin and Dead Letter Circus, HighView was born and proceeded to stamp its brand of rock music on the ears of thousands of listeners.

In 2017, HighView released their debut EP “Take Your Time”, released their debut single “Reset”, and toured around Australia supporting high profile acts such as Voyager and Starset.

"Australian rock is having a resurgence and HighView could be amongst the frontrunners"

In 2019, HighView will return to the studio to produce their debut full-length album and will be back on the road, broadcasting their original sound to a rapidly growing and eager audience.
