The song features contributions from Sleeping With Sirens' Kellin Quinn and Like Pacific's Jordan Black.



We're delighted to present 'Home Is Where The Hea(r)t Is', the new track from Aim High

Serving as part of their upcoming debut album 'Local Band Forever', which will feature collaborations with a whole host of familiar faces, the track is a boisterous and bold combination of pop-punk pomp and post-hardcore grit. Technical, catchy and creatively heavy, it also features vocal appearances from Sleeping With Sirens' Kellin Quinn and Like Pacific's Jordan Black, who both absolutely smash their parts. 

The band had this to say about what the track represents and how they got Jordan and Kellin involved...

"This track represents so many things: progress, patience, determination, hard work, etc. However, the biggest sentiment of this song is that no matter where you end up in life, to remain humble and never forget where you came from.

"I remember in 2016 when I first met Jordan of Like Pacific(no merch person, just the whole band slinging T-shirts in the hot ass sun) at Warped Tour, just out there grinding. I remember respecting that so much. I also remember roughly 8 years ago seeing Sleeping With Sirens for the first time, as a photographer. I remember Kellin being so nice, and well, their band completely blew up. I saw them again before covid, and got a chance to briefly chat with Kellin, and he was the same down to earth person I originally met, and I also really respected that. 

"We really wanted both bands on the track and we didn't know if we would be able to make it work and get the song on the EP but we did and it's so fire and we're so grateful and humbled to get to release it to the world. And I wouldn't change a thing."


And they had this to say about the thinking behind 'Local Band Forever'...

"The concept for Local Band Forever came when someone tried to use our "local band" status as a low-key derogatory term. I went to the band and said, 'We should really embrace this" so we decided to name the debut LP 'Local Band Forever' and have every single song feature a "not so local" or "more famous" band or artist.

It was a far-fetched idea at first, but with hard work and the help of an amazing team, we not only got it done but got it done "our way" which is really important to us. Music has always been a tool of expression, and for us a band to be able to come out of the gate and express ourselves in this way on our first official release, with all of our friends, it's just beyond words. 

So grateful, so blessed, and so stoked."


Here we go then:



'Local Band Forever' is still being worked on as we speak, but the band have shared a couple more songs that are set to appear on it previously. 

They are 'Better Than This' featuring Broadside's Ollie Baxxter:



And 'Gender Neutral Happy Meal' featuring Belmont and Safehold:
