High on Stress

High on Stress returned in 2011 with their third album, Living is a Dying Art, following the critically acclaimed Cop Light Parade (2008) and Moonlight Girls (2005). The thirteen song collection showcases singer/songwriter Nick Leet’s continuing growth as a writer of clever, melodic pop songs. At the same time, this is certainly a rock record, forged in the crucible of sweaty live shows, hazardous driving conditions and lodging in the bad part of the bad part of town.

Since Cop Light Parade the band has played all over the country, including opening for influences Tommy Keene (Paul Westerberg, Robert Pollard) and ex-Replacement Slim Dunlap, even serving as Slim’s backing band on occasion. While Living is a Dying Art reflects the sharper edge of the band as a live act, the songwriting retains the charm and poignancy that marked its predecessors, as evidenced by the song “Head” featuring Caitlin Cary of Whiskeytown.
