Highly Suspect announces new album, “MCID”; listen to two new songs now

300 EntertainmentHighly Suspect has announced a new album called MCID. The third studio effort from the "My Name Is Human" rockers, the follow-up to 2016's The Boy Who Died Wolf, will arrive November 1.

MCID -- which stands for "My Crew Is Dope," the Highly Suspect motto -- expands the band's guitar-based sound to include more elements of hip hop, pop and electronic music. It features collaborations with Nothing But Thieves and Gojira, as well as rappers Young Thug and Tee Grizzley.

Two songs from MCID, lead single "16" and the track "Upperdrugs," are available now for digital download.

"The themes [on MCID] include self loathing, substance abuse, image issues, addressing my past and changing my future, with a sprinkle of anti-Trump, false social media worship, heartbreak, hope, depression and suicide," says frontman Johnny Stevens.

"There are also a few references to the pressures of fame and how I won't play into it."

Highly Suspect will launch a fall U.S. tour ahead of MCID's arrival September 12 in Flint, Michigan.
