Your Highness

In recent years, Belgium has become a hotbed for talented sludge/stoner metal bands, and Antwerp-based Your Highness stands out as one of the top acts in the scene. Following their self-titled EP in 2010 and the hard-hitting debut album “Cults ‘n’ Cunts” in 2011, the quintet hit their stride with the release of “City in Ruins” in 2015. This second full-length album was a powerful statement, earning them back-to-back appearances at the renowned Graspop Metal Meeting, where their live performances left a lasting impact.

2015 was a pivotal year for Your Highness, marked by the collaboration with Flemish comedian Philip Geubels for the “Desert Kater” video and their tenure as artists in residence at Antwerp’s Trix concert venue. The band continued to push creative boundaries with the release of their eponymous album in 2019, featuring the track “The Flood” directed by “Welp” director Jonas Govaerts.

Your Highness has built a formidable live reputation through relentless touring, captivating audiences across Europe. In 2022, they released the EP “The Ragbag Vol. 1” and are now gearing up for their fourth full-length album “Under The Weight,” set to drop on October 11, 2024, via Polderrecords. The digital and physical release will coincide with their performance at Desertfest Antwerp, followed by a release party at ZAPPA in Antwerp on November 9, 2024.

Stay tuned as Your Highness continues to conquer the heavy music world with their unyielding energy and dark, melodic intensity.
