Victory Records announced the worldwide signing of Spannish Hardcore band WE RIDE and the release of their label debut album, “Empowering Life”, on April 14th.
Meanwhile, the band shared ‘Self Made’, the first video taken from the album.
Here’s a few words from front-woman Mimi Telmo:
“Signing with Victory Records is the reward of seven years of hard work and also a motivator to deliver the goods. 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.”
