Having celebrated 25 years as a band, High On Fire have inspired countless others in their time – riding high on a wave of thunder and tumult. 

The trio – now consisting of Matt Pike (vocals/guitar), Coady Willis (drums) and Jeff Matz (bass) – return to the UK for their first shows in two years.

Through eight full-lengths and a number of live releases and EPs, the punching command of High On Fire has established the band as an unmatched and wholly unmistakable force in the realm of heavy metal.

Beginning with 2000’s The Art of Self Defense, the band joined independent label Relapse Records in 2001, and unleashed what would become three of the most dynamically influential heavy music releases of the 21st Century thus far with Surrounded by Thieves (2002), Blessed Black Wings (2005), and Death Is This Communion (2007).

A year after signing with the highly-regarded eOne MusicHigh On Fire released 2010’s Snakes for the Divine, a powerhouse record that saw the band supporting Metallica in the same year. With widely respected producer/engineer Kurt Ballou at the helm, 2012’s De Vermis Mysteriis brought High On Fire immediate and virtually universal acclaim, before 2015’s monstrous Luminiferous confirmed the band’s status as the litmus test for all things heavy. 

Not content to rest, 2018’s Electric Messiah many acclaimed as the band’s best, and confirmed the trio within the ranks of metal royalty, winning that year’s GRAMMY for Best Metal Performance.
