Highly Suspect have released the official video for their new single, “Little One,” available via 300 Entertainment. “Little One” is the second single from the band’s critically praised sophomore album, The Boy Who Died Wolf, which debuted at #1 on the Current Alternative Album and at #2 Rock Album on the Billboard Charts. To date, the album has spent over 22 weeks on the Billboard charts.
“Little One” is the follow-up to “My Name Is Human” which spent 9 weeks at #1 at Active, reached Top 15 at Alternative Radio and was nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Rock Song category among legends like David Bowie, Metallica, Radiohead, and also Twenty One Pilots.
Set in the mid-1980’s, the “Little One” video stars band frontman Johnny Stevens as a thrift store manager who is at breaking point, and bandmates Rich and Ryan Meyer as policemen who are hot on his tail. The video was co-directed by DJay Brawner and Johnny Stevens.
Highly Suspect are currently on a sold-out U.S. headlining tour which wraps up on June 3 in Los Angeles. In addition, Highly Suspect will also be performing at a number of festivals this Spring, including Lollapalooza, Shaky Knees, Bottlerock, Bumbershoot the Milwaukee Summer Fest and more to be announced shortly.
“‘Little One’ is about love slipping through the cracks. It’s the feeling you have when you know you just lost your lover, your right hand, your best friend. Our videos try to capture emotion. Standing in an empty room pretending to play instruments is something you’ll never see us do. I grew up watching real music videos. Stories. ‘Thriller’ comes to mind. You already know we’re a band. Why do you need to see a guitar? As artists, we need to continue making art in all aspects. The actual ‘Little One’ in this video is played by the real-life woman the song was written about, Madison Parker…and that was the last time I saw her. The irony here is that the band pulls me away from love. It’s very true to life. ” – Highly Suspect frontman, Johnny Stevens
