HIMALAYAS have also revealed the music video, which captures some highlights from their recent UK headline tour, which included sold out shows, one being their raucous hometown gig at Buffalo in Cardiff. The visuals were directed by the BAFTA-nominated James Russell (Queens Of The Stone Age, Editors, The Strokes and more), and can be seen here.
Frontman Joe Williams has said of the track, “From Hell to Here was born out of events that happened to me at the end of 2019. The song is about potentially never waking up again and the effect that has on you once you’ve woken.”

HIMALAYAS’ previously released singles Out Of The Dark And Into The Light and Alone, have both received solid radio support and been spun on shows such as BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show with Daniel P Carter and Future Alternatives with Nels Hylton, plus on Planet Rock Radio. The tracks have also drummed up great support on Spotify, where the band have almost 500k monthly listeners and amassed 40 million streams, and been included in playlists such as All New Rock (361k likes), Alternative Noise (52k likes) and more.
Sharing a mutual love of Queens Of The Stone Age, Muse and Iggy Pop in their teenage years, Joe and guitarist Mike Griffiths started performing in small venues, and soon captured the attention of hungry fans and music industry tastemakers alike. Later joined by drummer James Goulbourn in 2015, they were completed by Louis Heaps on bass. HIMALAYAS started making their own unique blend of raucous fast-paced rock’n’roll music, which soon went on to earn them an extremely solid fanbase. The four-piece have been cutting their teeth on the live circuit ever since, playing highly-regarded festivals including SXSW and Reading & Leeds Festival, supported the likes of Stereophonics and Manic Street Preachers, and have played sold out headline shows in London and Cardiff.
