About High Crime:
Larry and Reign became friends through the local music scene when their bands Witchtit and Demon Eye performed together in November 2018. They started sending riffs and vocals back and forth until they had a few song ideas to expand on. In September of 2022 they brought in Matt Couchon and Ryan Masecar and established their line-up. High Crime started writing quickly, working off of old and new riffs Larry had, and pretty soon they had a set and started gigging in early February 2023. Musically the band draw from an array of influences including the likes of Deep Purple and Geezer Butler to Joan Jett and Iron Maiden.
