We Ride from Spain bring their taut and tense brand of hardcore to Victory Records, the latest in a string of solid signings like Forever At Last and Broadside. We Ride are ready to make bigger waves and will likely find quite a few new fans with their frenetic brand of punk rock.
“Signing with Victory Records is the reward of seven years of hard work and also a motivator to deliver the goods,” promises vocalist Mimi Telmo. “It has not been easy to be taken seriously in a man’s world. Especially in today’s political climate, it is beyond critical that women support each other. I want to be a positive figure for females involved in the hardcore punk scene. Personally, it has been difficult at times, many feeling offended there being a front-girl in hardcore. ‘Self Made’ is about breaking the stereotypes. Victory is the label that wrote the book on hardcore and it’s an incredible feeling to be a part of it. This is just the beginning and we are here to stay.”
WE RIDE hit the studio in 2016 with Alex Cappa at Metal Factory Studios outside Madrid, and the album was mixed in early 2017 by Cameron Webb (Motorhead, NOFX). The ten track blitzkrieg features Deez Nuts front-man JJ Peters on the track ‘What You Are.’
New song “Self Made” premiered originally at Alt Press and you can watch it below.
