  • PreAmp Suggest: We The Wild

    Portland’s We The Wild show another side of the City of Roses. Shows like Portlandia and the overwhelming presence of bands like The Decemberists paint a picture of PDX as a city that’s exclusive to rustic, quirky charms. But our friends south of us have been birthing punk and hardcore bands just as long as Seattle has. We The Wild goes against every stereotype that media has tried to shoehorn the city into. Their mangled guitar riffs are assertive and furious, building a mighty base for vocalist Ben Cline’s brutal screams. With whatever wave on now of hardcore/emo, We The Wild are contenders for the Northwest act to pick u the mantle.
