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.”
TERROR recently released a video for the song ‘Mind At War’, taken from the new album, “The 25th Hour”, out on Victory Records! Here’s what frontman Scott Vogel said about the track:
“When Nick (Jett, drummer) first showed me this song, I immediately thought it had a DRI “Four Of A Kind” crossover feel to it which I love and is pretty fresh for TERROR. Lyrically, everyone can relate to this. All our minds are at war within ourselves and this fucked up world. We needed a visual that bought to life the dark side of our thoughts and the Tom Soares legendary production really shows on this track.”
FEED HER TO THE SHARKS have released a new video for the song ‘The World is Yours’, taped in Germany during the Australian Takeover Tour and featuring all the high points from a show from these Australian hot blooded metallers.
Here’s what had to say about the video and the experience of playing live:
“We played three dates in Germany for the ‘Australian Takeover Tour,’ and after the first show, we knew we had to get the others on film. These were some of the best shows of our lives! It was such an amazing experience and we can’t wait to get back. Heading to the other side of the planet to play music, and to see that people are into it is such an amazing feeling. We are five guys from Australia taking our music around the world and it just goes to show that if you put your mind to something, and feel really passionately about it, you can achieve anything. The world is yours!”
KISSING CANDICE have released a music video for ‘Put ‘Em Up,’ the single from their new album “Blind Until We Burn”. Guitarist Walt Dicristina shared a few words about the video:
“We set out to create an organically eerie and abrasive atmosphere for this video. Along with much of the album as a whole, “Put ‘Em Up” is meant to inspire one to stand up for themselves and what they believe in… leaving their fears and insecurities at the wayside.”
Described by some as musical schizophrenia, the music from THE BUNNY THE BEAR continues to push deep in several new areas. Their newest album, “A Liar Wrote This”, the sixth in their career, goes all the way from R&B to screamo and Matt “The Bunny” Tybor shared a few comments on the album:
“’A Liar Wrote This’ has already taken a very special place in my heart. I am extremely proud of the hard work put in by all involved, especially Haley, my new ‘Bear.’ It was wonderful working with my long-time friend and producer Doug White, and I couldn’t be more confident with the new direction we’ve taken. We didn’t want to shut fans out by doing a 180-degree change, but the vigor Haley brings definitely earns its place on ‘A Liar Wrote This.’”

“We wanted to have a little more fun with this one, Dave (Matrise – vocals/guitar) has wanted to kill one of more of us band mates at least once or twice, so we actually gave him the opportunity! The song is essentially about a hunter becoming the hunted, so the imagery fits rather well. It was a blast to film.” James Genenz (bass)
‘Paralyzed Prey’ is the first single taken from JUNGLE ROT’s latest album, “Order Shall Prevail”, out on Victory Records.
