Highly Suspect – The Boy Who Died Wolf

I’ve seen a trend lately of cover bands breaking out and making their own albums, writing original songs, and I think there are some really talented bands among these people. Highly Suspect is one of those bands; who once were doing covers of Jimi Hendrix and Sublime are now nabbing Grammy nominations and taking the music industry by storm.
