Her Bright Skies is a Swedish post-hardcore band based in Jönköping.


HBS consists of Johan "Jaybee" Brolin (vocals), Niclas "Nikki" Sjostedt (guitar), Petter "Pete" Nilsson (guitar, vocals), Jonas Guddmunson (drums), and Joakim "Jolly" Karlsson (bass guitar, vocals). The first CD was released in 2007 and is called Beside Quiet Waters. The EP was produced on their own.

Just one year later their debut full-length album called A Sacrament; Ill City followed. The album was produced at District 19 Records. Their second full-length CD is called Causing a Scene and was produced at Swedish Independent record label Panic & Action. Causing a Scene was released in 2010. The same year HBS played at Pier Pressure Festival together with Thirty Seconds to Mars, HIM, Pendulum and Paramore. The Used cancelled their gig at Pier Pressure.[1] The band shared stage with Swedish Metalcore band and label mates Adept through Germany and with Bring Me the Horizon through Scandinavia.[2][3]

HBS co-headlined Panic & Action Tour with Kid Down through Sweden. The band played concerts in Germany, Norway, Austria and the Netherlands.[3][4]

In June 2011 HBS shared stage at Siesta Festivalen together with Asking Alexandria, ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, August Burns Red, Adept, Bullet and many other bands.[5]

They recently finished their second tour around the United States, and released their third album "Rivals."
