Can you feel it? There’s a seismic rumbling beneath the Atlantic… Higher Power from Leeds in the UK. Set to drop their debut LP Soul Structure on May 19th via Flatspot Records, this mosh crew’s fresh take on HxC is sure to please fans of all walks. Though I never dare say “clean,” the impassioned and intelligible vocals á la Life Of Agony are balanced perfectly with a shockingly vibrant take on 90’s inspired hardcore. Though decidedly present day, they’d have felt at home on Revelation in their heyday. Instead, they’ve come out hard, making a place in the already impressive cadre of UKHC bands making waves. Bucking trends and fucking boundaries, Higher Power are coming. Get ready, get rad..
Though they were busy decimating Europe, they were kind enough to take time to answer a few questions. What follows is an exercise in the raddest sort of brevity. Get on this band before they’re everywhere. On the eve of Outbreak Fest and world domination, I give you Higher Power…

How’d Higher Power come together?
I guess Higher Power is an extension of our personalities and we never compromise that for shit. 5 guys, 1 beautiful brain.
