We Ride is a hardcore band from Vigo, Spain. The band was formed by singer Mimi Telmo and guitarist Borja Trigo.

In 2009 they self-released a demo that led to their first full-length album “Directions”. In 2012 they released their second full-length “On The Edge”. Over the years We Ride played with bands like H2O, Comeback Kid, Madball, Bane and many others in over 30 countries worldwide. They hit the studio again in 2016 with Alex Cappa at Metal Factory Studios outside Madrid and the album was mixed in early 2017 by Cameron Webb.

Empowering Life”, is WE RIDE’s Victory Records debut, and was released on April 14th, 2017.

And the riff at the beginning of the third track, ‘What You Are’, has a Slayer feel to it but the song is quickly back at the roots of classic hardcore/punk. This song also features Deez Nuts front-man JJ Peters. Continue reading »
