which has been played in Russia, USA and Germany. The album covers various themes, including the 911 event, the death of Michael Jackson and band line up changes. The album currently includes a limited edition 12 page booklet.

 

HIGH SPY – PARALYSED AND HYPNOTISED (2015)
The ten track album was released in 2015, and has had very good reviews so far…

The album is a thematic album based on relationships, whereby you can feel paralysed and hypnotised within certain relationships, whether married, friends or relations. Some days you feel on top of the world and others you feel there is just no point…. make a wish…. count to three…. come with me!

HIGH SPY – BIOGRAPHY

The SECOND album “Head For The Moon” came 3 years later in 2009, which gave them their first European hit, “Rollercoaster”, a tribute to the now dismantled rollercoaster ride, The Corkscrew at Alton Towers, the lyrical content, with its tongue in cheek sense of humour gained new fans surprisingly from countries such as Russia, Italy, Poland, Argentina and Australia. They had great media coverage on the radio across the globe and were even featured on many Progressive Rock Radio shows in the USA and Russia.
A DVD was also released to complement the CD album, featuring alternative mixes from the CD plus including interviews, live footage, animation, special features and different mixes from the CD album.
