“Over the years we’ve seen some of our favorite bands thrive on Victory and do some amazing things in this scene, and we are extremely proud to announce our signing and be a part of that,” exclaims vocalist Kyle Christensen. “We are excited to work with a label that has put so much effort into some of our favorite bands that we grew up listening to. After visiting the Victory office and meeting all of the amazing staff, we knew this was going to be a massive opportunity for us to put one of our own gold records on that same wall as some of our favorite artists.” Continue reading »

On ‘Puzzle Pieces,’ he continues, “As I’m getting older and the band progresses, we’re being put into situations where we have the opportunity to reach a wider audience. Do we take advantage of those opportunities or stay true to who we are and express our ideals? Eventually you must ask yourself, at what cost does this come? Do I edit myself or do I speak the harsh reality of the creative industry? Puzzle pieces – it takes one piece to either start or finish an entire piece of art.” Continue reading »

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.

At the beginning of the album the music slowly swells on and gets you excited for what is to come. And when it all breaks loose We Ride treats us on some old school hardcore With the first track ‘Voices’. And the energy rages forth with ‘Self Made’ for which they shot an official video. In contrast to a lot of other hardcore bands the choruses are sometimes catchy and the riff at two thirds of the song is just epic! 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 »
