about

The new eponymous album from We Insist! and the first as a trio. Recorded in Studio Nibiru in 2013, this self-titled album incorporates noise, post-hardcore, math-rock and pushes even further the ever-changing aspects of rock and its' unexplored variations. For the reference-savvy purists, we’ll make reference to acts such as Fugazi, Primus, NoMeansNo, Tool or Medications.

Trimmed down to three members since 2010, We Insist! has gone back to basics with their feet firmly planted in the ground, creating more melodic music than before; surplus and excess removed.

about

We Insist! Paris, France

After hundreds of concerts, extensive touring in Europe and 5 albums, WE INSIST! have from the very the beginning shared the same desire to battle for new musical ideas. These ideas and goals are the main reasons for their uncommon longevity: WE INSIST! is more than a rock band, it’s a genuine musical project.

Is it post-hardcore, noise, metal, independant rock, pop or experimental?

Track Name: While The West Is Falling
While the west is falling
While the west is falling
Fireworks are glowing
He's got to earn his own stock his own slavery
He's got to learn his own luck his own liberty
In the distance old castles are crumbling
In the distance old cities raging
In the distance an old castles is burning
In the distance new cities raising
It's gonna leave a long trail
and a black stain on the earth
While the west is falling
Fireworks are glowing
Track Name: Folding Iron
River carries out,
it will carry you out
it will drag you out there

Bending people’s will to be quiet
Folding iron like simple sheet

It's so misleading
Don't you get caught in this zone

They're breaking idols
they're making icons
Track Name: First Draft
For nothing now can ever come to any good
And sheer Beauty is what they say what can't be delayed

Taking a hand
Selling a soul
Look at her dance
Fall in the trap, she's a target
It's her first draft
Drawn from first doubt

The neon buzz, the night shift rolls and never changes
Curiosity has turned into a ominous feeling
It's still too soon to break an oath and give away
And spying glances are everywhere at any time

Taking a hand
Selling a soul
Look at her dance
Fall in the trap, she's a target
It's her first draft
Drawn from first doubt

But she will haunt the same places
She leaves her grieves for the night
She will be there for a while
She won't forget where she went
And all the rest won't remain
Track Name: My Friend's Lonely Mate
My friend's lonely mate is gone ahead of us
Well dear I found no time to say I wasn't marching his way
He said I don't belong where everyone of you are bailing out
Good luck I have no faith I could buy it from you with a golden curl

My friend's lonely mate is gone another way
The days are moving fast and slow the weight of the spirit goes
he jumped another stream he leaped a little farther again
No sigh no after-cry the Vanity the error of the whole

He's fading he won't grow back
All his lies gone up in smoke
Carrying is weight on his back
Oh ! He's left like a grey shell
He stands still
There's nobody inside his head
straight and proud
There's nobody inside his head
Track Name: Elijah's Spell
Where he dwells
Oh we swell
And we swear
Elijah's spell is ours
There was a time and place
Alas he felt a stir in the air
The shadows are merely flowers
This is a place of sweat and sour
Down comes hail the curse befall
Where he dwells
Smell the breeze and hum his ways
Bid farewell to thee

He said : I'm back in to this realm, no doubt no doubt no doubt at all
He said My heart is that of stone no harm no harm no harm at all
He said : I'm back in to this realm, no doubt no doubt no doubt at all
_______________
There rolls the deep where grew the tree
The whirlwind took him away
A sparkle once caught his eye
Bid farewell to the elder

He said : I'm back in to this realm, no doubt no doubt no doubt at all
He said My heart is that of stone no harm no harm no harm at all
He said : I'm back in to this realm, no doubt no doubt no doubt at all
Track Name: Black Post White Ghost
The stage coach
feeds of the queen
it's on the lawn
and knows no fast
I don't mind
Which way you choose
her majesty
or reality

Right hand, left hand, black post, white ghost
all the signs are there with the utmost care
roll call, places change, sit up straight, write me a letter
when you've won a fight, if you find your family

This jewel isn't yours
it's on display
You can play the thief
or give and take
Too many transports too many ghosts
Too many Gophers to many rats
Too many jewels too many germs
Too many carpets too little joy
Too many levels too many stairs
Too many transports too many ghosts

Right hand, left hand, black post, white ghost
all the signs are there with the utmost care
roll call, places change, sit up straight, write me a letter
when you've won a fight, if you find your family

It all began with a little spark in a cellar
It all began behind the Christian door
but all dead-end finishes with a sacrifice
Track Name: Four Nights in August
They came from the North side-walks
Deserting Duggan's cab
The rumour blew the sparks
from Carpetright

Obsolete soldiers
defend a castle made of sand
there're the tide on their back
They're never looking at

4 Nights in August
And the caterpillar was still ungry
Bitter-sweet melodies of cobblestones beneath a neon god

Tottenham kids claiming for justice and tv screens

Hundreds of hoodies taunting the black and yellow shell
Track Name: Grinding Down The Pole
He's blinded by the bore
He's grinding down the pole
You haven't see, nothing, nothing at all

He's blinded by the bore
He's standing all alone
You haven't see, nothing, nothing at all

It's colourless, in the air
It's colourless, on the ground
You haven't see, nothing, nothing at all

flakes and flakes and flakes...

No one 's here for the blessing
All the crews have been spread out
Captain Scott is missing
No witness for the showdown

Down I go
This is home
the die are thrown

The great white is a killer
He's grinding down the pole
You haven't see, nothing, nothing at all

He's glazing all around
Facing all his goals
You haven't see, nothing, nothing at all
Track Name: The White Fleet
On two more men more men more
one clings still one carries me
If him see I bearing down
Grass bush eyes gulls coming far
was up shore fish coming down
me me more lips digging down
deep see out far doryman
ice rocks ice snow yes I did
beat wash out sail frugal key
drew far gone you juggernaut
wide spread wings out arkangels
toy fair freeze out do not play
cold fog set sail slip away
salt cod cold see dory out
mad man salt sick no not now
swoop loops sidekicks shutting off
fish fish I fish coming

The white fleet is coming
and we're all suspended
waiting
for a broken heart to lean
towards us trying to find a new home

The last man is boarding
They're setting sail at dawn
waiting
for a new celebration holding cross and anchor high in the sky

the white fleet glides in
All your men are on safe land
Wealth is stowed away
in the loneliness of the dory
it all seems so far
Track Name: Another Era
There was a rumour going
in every bar in every home
“can’t recall”

They all seemed to be walking
in the same direction
“can’t recall”

It's a train of thoughts diluted into
the death of a city
Its steams and fumes were slowly descending
on our minds

Another era
has come to an end
where are we now
it’s pace is faster and faster

It stays buried
and hides underground
and slowly moves outbound from the city
It slowly leaks
from all cellars
evolves and crawls out like an oil stain
It'll haul them out
to a safer ground
where they will scape and bow to any promises
