The High Strung is an American band from Detroit, Michigan, United States. The band is composed of lead singer and guitarist Josh Malerman, bassist Chad Stocker, and drummer Derek Berk. Malerman and Berk attended Michigan State University in the late 1990s before moving to New York City. The band formed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, when the members of the former East Lansing, Michigan band The Masons changed their name and added Stocker to the roster. Detroit guitarist Stephen Palmer joined the group shortly after the recording of Dragon Dicks.

These are Good Times, Moxie Bravo, and Get the Guests were all produced in Detroit by rock producer Jim Diamond. The High Strung are now on Park the Van Records. Their label debut, Get the Guests, was released in May 2007.
