About The High Strung

Known for their trenchant medley of melodic power pop, riffy garage rock, and eccentric wit, the High Strung are a rock & roll band from Detroit. Committed road dogs with a punk spirit and a warped sense of whimsy, the band issued a string of highly regarded albums throughout the 2000s while earning national coverage for their unusual tour of libraries. In 2011, their track "The Luck You Got" became the theme song for the Showtime television series Shameless, significantly enlarging their audience in advance of stand-out releases like 2012's ¿Posible O' Imposible? and 2014's I, Anybody. The band's fan base continued to expand with the added media attention from frontman Josh Malerman's burgeoning literary career, after his horror novel Bird Box was adapted into a popular 2018 Netflix film, setting the table for the High Strung's eighth album, Quiet Riots. They later resurrected the previously unissued album HannaH for release in late 2021.
