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.
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”. Highride released their self-titled debut album in December 2013 and toured Europe through Sweden, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. In October 2017 single & video “Sex Is My Substitute” was released and the band is currently in the studio working on the rest of their second full-length album.
