Biography

Las Vegas, United States (2002 – 2012)

Just because The Higher can bust out pop tunes, it doesn’t mean that’s what defines them. Their first two albums, Histrionics (2005) and On Fire (2007), branded the band’s trademark sound of R&B and pure rock. “We fuse the rock and R&B that we know, and put it into our own words,” founding member and bassist Jason “Face” Centeno says, citing Michael Jackson, The Dream, Al Green, Jimmy Eat World, and Maroon 5 as influences.

Now seven years since they first formed in 2002, and after some shuffling of band members, the Las Vegas-based band is back with their most radio-friendly album to date, It’s Only Natural, out on Epitaph Records on June 23, 2009.

“We wrote the best songs that The Higher has ever written on this record. No matter what kind of music you listen to, you’re going to find at least two songs that are your favorite,” founding member and lead singer Seth Trotter says. “We have two songs the girls are going to love, two rock songs the guys who loved our old sound want, two R&B songs for those who liked our stuff like ‘Insurance,” two slow jams that people have been begging us to do for a long time, and two straight-up pop songs. It’s like Noah’s Ark on this record — there’s two of everything!”

Not only is there something for everyone on this album, It’s Only Natural also marks the band’s first concept album, telling the story of what’s been going on in The Higher’s life.
