Highly Suspect's Johnny Stevens becoming a DJ; announces first show

Credit: Shervin LainezHighly Suspect frontman Johnny Stevens has announced he's becoming a DJ. He'll be playing his first show under his DJ name, Terrible Johnny, at the Exchange at Los Angeles on June 9.

"I'm going for it full force so this is gonna be a historical show," Stevens writes in a Facebook post, adding that becoming a DJ is his "dream." "This will be my first solo performance EVER. That only happens once. And I'm gonna turn it the f*** up and have this club bouncing so don't sleep on it."

In case you were worried that this pursuit spells the end of Highly Suspect, Stevens says you can put those fears to rest. "This does not mean anything in regard to the band not doing band things," he writes in all caps, adding that he, drummer Ryan Meyer and bassist Rich Meyer are currently in the recording studio working on their third album.

"This is a separate endeavor entirely and I just needed to be ULTRA CLEAR about that so that no one gets scared or thinks Highly Suspect isn't about to put out the best album ever because that’s still very much going to happen," Stevens writes.

Highly Suspect's most recent album is 2016's The Boy Who Died Wolf, which includes the singles "My Name Is Human" and "Little One."
