    The Higher



    Ex-Gerücht

    With two members still not old enough to buy beer, The Higher has established itself as the premier band in the Las Vegas local music scene. Their debut full length, entitled "Histrionics", has been hailed by critics and embraced by fans as one of the top albums of 2005. It's time for the world to get in on the secret.
    The Higher's roots trace back to 2002, when singer Seth Trotter, bassist Jason Centeno, drummer Patrick Harter and previous guitarist James Mattison started a high school band called September Star. Things got serious when lead guitarist Thomas Oakes joined the lineup a year later and the band began generating the innovative sound of what was soon to be The Higher. Playing as many local shows as possible, The Higher built a strong reputation in their hometown with a large and adoring group of supporters. Early shows were played with the likes of Something Corporate, The Starting Line, Yellowcard and Rufio.
    The members of The Higher were young, but they were ready to grow. With borrowed money, they recorded a demo of the songs they wrote when they were just 16. The demo impressed the folks at Fiddler Records, the band changed its name from September Star to The Higher, and the 5 song EP was released to the world as Star Is Dead. Produced by Saosin's Beau Burchell, Star Is Dead was released in the fall of 2003, and was followed by the band's first nationwide tour, playing with the likes of Park, Silverstein, and Emery. Recorded on a shoestring budget, the EP provided only a glimpse of the band's potential, yet favorable reviews poured in from everywhere.
    After touring for 18 months, the band went to work on new material, realizing their initial potential with the unveiling of Histrionics. With clever songwriting, aggressive musicianship, and crystal clear vocals, Histrionics (produced by Austin 's own Rory Phillips) is an album that will simply refuse to come out of your CD player. It contains high energy songs like Rock My Body, Lo, and Gone With the Guillotine, mixed in with sing-along anthems like Histrionics, Prepare For Something Else, and the closing song, Pace Yourself.
    Recently, The Higher and Fiddler Records agreed to pursue their ambitions independent of one another, while guitarist James Mattison left the band to pursue a "normal" life. Fortunately, the band was able to pick up guitarist Robert Ragan, just in time for their current tour.
    Having honed their skills in hundreds of live shows, The Higher has held its own playing with heavyweight bands like Taking Back Sunday, Unwritten Law, and Less than Jake. The Higher is now positioned to take their music to the next level. It's time for the world to find out what Vegas knows:
    This band could be your life. Make it your life and it will be your life. Pace.
