Band Bio & Press Kit

The Story Of Highride

Highride formed in 2006 as a noisy punk rock band in the dirty suburbs of Stockholm, Sweden. Two years of songwriting and sweating in tiny rehersal rooms led to the band’s live debut in 2008 and the early years was all about building a fanbase, performing live anywhere they could. With numerous shows behind them (sharing stage with bands such as Hardcore Superstar and Crashdïet) and with a unique blend of punk, sleaze and hard rock – Highride has without a doubt managed to put their name on the international rock ‘n’ roll map.

Clockwise from the bottom: Peter Waljus – vocals & guitar, Kriss Keyes – bass, Mille Lithander – guitar and Nicke Rosell – drums.

The first official debut single & video ‘Song of Your Decay’ was released in September 2012, and in August 2013 came their second single ‘Bad Habit’ – both recieving good attention on radio stations all around the world. Highride released their self-titled debut album, produced by Tomas Skogsberg (Backyard Babies, The Hellacopters, Entombed), in 2013 and toured Europe through Sweden, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

Highride released their instantly popular singles ‘Sex Is My Substitute’ in Oct 2017 and ‘A Good Day (To Die)’ Nov 2018, ‘Red Light Rambler’ Sep 2019 and are currently in the studio working on finishing their second full-length album.
