We Are Killing Ourselves, were born in 2001 in Almeirim, Portugal, when a circle of friends with similar musical influences, set out to create their own brand of storming metal music. The first demo "Outrage" was recorded in 2002 and since then the band has reached a wider audience and has been able to establish a great relationship with those who have become the band's followers. By 2004 We Are Killing Ourselves recorded an independent EP by the name of "Symbiotic Existence", produced by Daniel Cardoso. Then began a new crusade on the Portuguese music landscape. With four years of existence and over 200 live performances, sharing stages with Soulfly, Sepultura, (Hed)pe, Moonspell, Municipal Waste, Bizarra Locomotiva, Benediction, Obituary, Textures, Pestilence, Aborted, Ramp, Breed 77, Paradise Lost, Entombed, Slayer, Megadeth, Uneven Structure, The Algorithm and participating in many summer festivals throughout the country, We Are Killing Ourselves have become recognized and respected as one of the hardest working bands in Portugal.
The band took some time off to reflect and start recording their debut album at Ultrasound Studios. The partnership with Daniel Cardoso has been success full over the years and culminated in a 2007's "Deconstructive Essence" album. The band sign a 2year contract with the independent label Casket Music and Deconstructive Essence was released worldwide in August 27th 2007. This album achieved a notorious projection in both national and international musical domain, acclaimed as one of the best works on the national artistic field and a serious and genuine promise in the European alternative music. In 2008 We Are Killing Ourselves toured throughout the UK and the USA, namely, in the state of Florida, as headliners.
In early 2010, the band planned to record their 2nd album and worked, again, with Daniel Cardoso, at Ultrasound Studios in Braga (PT), having successfully recorded the album "The Road of Awareness". The album was mixed and mastered by Grammy award winner, Josh Wilbur (Chevelle, Staind, Puddle of Mud, Hatebreed and Lamb of God), at Spin Studios in New York City. After some changes in the band and having gathered all the conditions, the band has signed with the record label Rastilho Records. We Are Killing Ourselves display a fine tuned metal machine of raucous and raw intensity with a polished production and with a heavy live work schedule ahead the band is destined for an audience far outreaching the borders of their homeland.
