EASTERN HIGH was founded in the Øresund harbor of Malmö in Sweden, by brothers Ola and Johan Svensson. Both were previously members of local thrash metal fame Wasted Shells, a band revered in the Swedish underground metal scene, which split up in 2015. Eastern High emerged as a new vessel for the brothers' more progressive approach in songwriting.

Their revered 2017 debut ‘Garden of Heathens’ helped the band gather a solid fanbase, with lead single "Bottled Insanity" reaching over 600k Spotify streams and each of their videos resulting in instant appreciation from metal fans across the globe. Ola and Johan then decided to continue further and turn this project into a full-scale band, with Fredrik Rosdahl, Niklas Cvetkovski, and Christian Lindström completing the lineup. EASTERN HIGH played their first live show in the summer of 2019, quickly followed by several gigs and tours... until the pandemic put the world to a halt. The quintet focused on writing and recording their sophomore full-length 'Halo'.

New album 'Halo' was mixed and produced by Erik Wiss at Tone Tension Productions, mastered by Thomas Johansson at The Panic Room. The artwork was designed by Christian Wallin. It will be issued on vinyl, CD, and digital on July 30th, 2021.
