We’re stoked to announce the release today of HIGHTIME’s video documentary A Decade of Thrivin’ to celebrate the first 10 years of the band.
Whilst 2020 started with promise and our release of their 7″ EP Thrive, COVID quickly took away their ability to tour and do what the band loves most; play live music to a crowd of people they love. They’ve taken this downtime to collate the last decade of footage from their best bud Dougy and make it into an old skool VHS style punk rock tape which you can view on our YouTube channel here now!.
Grab a glass/mug/can of your favourite beverage and sit back and celebrate a decade of one of the most fun punk bands full of the best punks I’ve ever been involved with. HIGHTIME – A Decade of Thrivin’
Super stoked to announce that HIGHTIME’s “Thrive” EP is out today, and you can stream it from start to finish below! ‘Thrive’ is Hightime’s coming of age record; a story about reconnecting with yourself, others, and the earth we all live upon.
You can order the Limited Edition 7″ EP here on Transparent ‘Reign In Blood’ Red vinyl, with all orders receiving a digital download code for the record when your order and payment is confirmed.

HIGHTIME – ‘Thrive’, in stores nationally Friday 27 March on Digital and 7″ EP
We’re stoked to announce that pre-orders for the new HIGHTIME EP “Thrive” are available on our Pee Records webstore now!
After a decade of creating music together, Hightime have managed to develop a sound that seamlessly winds it way through various genres, straying from the path and belief that a band needs only one style to survive.
‘Thrive’ is a record that encourages perspective, growth, determination, honesty and agency within everyone’s lives to ensure we are all living as best we can, for both ourselves and the world around us. Living your life whilst finding joy and fulfilment can be really difficult sometimes, and there is hope that Thrive can do for others what it has done for Hightime, to nurture and encourage positive growth and grounding perspective.
Featuring the upbeat surf-rock tinged ‘Quit Ya Job’, a song written to encourage people towards embracing what makes them happy, then later venturing to the sweet soulful sounds of ‘Say What You Mean’; a sobering look at how important it is to be honest with yourself and others, whilst taking only what we need, not just from people, but also from an environmental perspective. The EP’s first single ‘Quit Ya Job’ premiered on Triple J’s Short.Fast.Loud on Wednesday night and is the grat track with all pre-orders.
Thrive is Hightime’s coming of age record; a story about reconnecting with yourself, others, and the earth we all live upon.
The Limited Edition EP will be available on Transparent ‘Reign In Blood’ Red vinyl with our good mates at Lockjaw Records (UK) distributing a bunch of records for all our EU friends!
