The Rock and Roll Report Band Of the Week is Renegade Ride

renegade ride 300Sometimes grinding hard, but not metal. Partly soft, but not pop. A bit unpredictable, but not too progressive. Renegade Ride – an independent modern rock band with a twist.

Good songs are what music is all about and that’s what we strive for!

I guess there is a story behind Renegade Ride – the bigger, better and meaner version of the group formerly known as The Ride. The band was founded in Helsinki, Finland in 2005. After drifting through space and time for some years, line-up changes, writing quality material and working hard, Renegade Ride is now emerging stronger and harder than ever – ready to blow your mind.

Five individuals with long and diverse musical backgrounds combined together in a tight musical unit and the song-writing talent of Jake Enden make Renegade Ride a band to look out for in the future. The core of the band, rock-solid after playing together in various groups, amended with singer Jaakko Latva-Pukkila in 2006 is now tuned for something bigger.

Never looking back, but always striving to find something new. Never to compromise, never to be easily labeled, never afraid of blood, sweat and tears required to make it happen and always giving 110 percent when on stage. We believe nothing can be achieved if you do not put your heart into it.

The first full length studio album “Dream Machine” released 20th April 2009 has already got critical acclaim and radio play all over the world (f.ex. Canada, Germany, US, Argentina), making the future of RR look bright. Take The Ride!

Check them out and have a wicked week guys….
