Scene Queen

by The Hi-End



""Scene Queen" is a good old-fashioned shake-the-walls rocker featuring killer riffs, a simple catchy chorus, and a knockout vocal from Mr. Johnny Carlevale. The Hi-End are no strangers to this "AC/DC with a punk influence" type sound, but here they've nailed it like never before. It sure didn't hurt to have Mike Mariconda on hand to master the track! If you like riff-tastic rock and roll, this is about as perfect as it gets." - Faster And Louder

"There’s a big heavy chunk of DC running through this bad boy, especially on the understated solo. It’s a smoldering slab of rock n roll. IT’s nonsense-free, ego-free, bullshit-free, loud overdriven Rock n Roll kids and thats got to be championed." - RPM it's a Revolution

"The Hi-End’s new song “Scene Queen” is another seventies style rocker. The arrangement has the bass pumping steady through the song and that gives the song a strong identity. Highlights are Johnny Carlevale’s voice and the Curt Florczak guitar solos." - Boston Groupie News

"You could write a thousand words about The Hi-End, but "high octane rock & roll" pretty much tells you everything you need to know." - Lord Rutledge

Without further ado, get greased back, amped up, guitars and fists flying high, a dose of glam a strut of punk, slick guitar licks and a hook that's straight outta the Bowery taking a left into the Motor City and back to their hometown of Boston. "Scene Queen" the brand new digital single release from The Hi-End out now, only on Rum Bar Records.
