Biography

Two years after they met, six musicians coming from radically different universes released an EP under the name of We Insist!, an obvious reference to Freedom now suite, Max Roach’s manifest. Three LPs, hundreds of concerts and ten years later, We Insist! have created a style of their own. Oh! Things are so corruptible, their latest album, was released through their own label, Corruptible Records. It is a testimony of their resilience and their independence. Live performances are their battlefield, where songs are created and perfected in front of the audience. Their influences are numerous: Shellac, Queens of the stone age, Primus, At-The-Drive-In, John Zorn or Tool. David Lynch comes to mind as well, mostly because all such references and influences are subtly intertwined and mixed with one another. In the end, We Insist ! sound like We Insist! Because their music is too unpredictable and experimental for the holly guardians of the Temple of Rock, because it is too “written” for those who favor improvisation and free deconstruction, We Insist! do not belong to any existing category.
