Over the past six years, High Tension have obliterated genre barriers with their devastatingly brutal live show, presenting their fierce punk metal to fans on stages at small clubs, large venues and festivals like Laneway, Splendour In The Grass, Dark Mofo and opening Main Stage on Download Festival Australia.

Their second album Bully was well received by critics and scored them the gong for 'Best Heavy Album' at The Age Awards. Now comes Purge. The band’s third album is a fierce piece of work, filled with the sound of frustration, fear, disgust, horror, hatred and – yes – rage, spewed up and moulded into the Melbourne quartet’s most extreme statement yet. “This,” vocalist Karina Utomo offers, “is the centre of my repressed rage.”

High Tension join us during their Purge album tour. Tune in for the live performance on Fang It!. Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
