HIGH REEPER TO BRING THE 70S WORSHIP TO DESERTFEST 2019!
High octane seventies metal is the name of the game for Heavy Psych Sounds Records signees High Reeper, and they do it well.
This Philadelphia five-piece has made one record since forming in 2016. The current lineup of Zach Thomas (vocals), Pat Daly (guitar), Andrew Price (guitar), Shane Trimble (bass guitar) and Napz Mosley (drums) rage in the spirit of the classic marauders, from the famous names like Thin Lizzy to the underground heroes like Leaf Hound.
Taking up the same direct, no-nonsense attitude as Motörhead, most songs put the pedal to the metal right from the get-go and along with reverence of vintage heroes, High Reeper also pay respect to So-Cal skater sounds à la Fu Manchu, and clearly like themselves a bit of southern rock too. All in all, a combination not to be sniffed at!
Desertfest is very proud to invite them for their first appearance in the UK, this is a fantastic chance to see a band that has until now only played a handful of times in Europe, with friends like Freedom Hawk, so come get High with Reeper at Desertfest 2019!
