Highly Suspect’s Favorite Part About Touring? “Naked Parties”

Credit: Shervin LainezHighly Suspect recently wrapped up a U.S. tour in support of their sophomore album, The Boy Who Died Wolf, and they certainly had a fun, frequently unclothed time on the road. For frontman Johnny Stevens, the best part of touring has been traveling and the "naked parties."

"We have naked parties," Stevens tells Rolling Stone. "And I feel like no one would want to have naked parties with us if we weren't successful. That's a mind-blower."

Also mind-blowing? Having the opportunity to meet some of the band's music heroes.

"We were playing Aftershock Fest in Sacramento and [Queens of the Stone Age's] Josh Homme walked in on his cell phone and it was like the air stopped," says drummer Ryan Meyer.

Not all of Highly Suspect's rock celebrity encounters were as positive, though. When they were opening for Scott Weiland last year, the late Stone Temple Pilots frontman was "hurting and it was very visible."

"I'll just put it this way, none of us were surprised [when Weiland died]," Stevens says. "I had a couple interactions with him and they were very distant. Like you feel like you're talking to someone who's not really there."
