HistoryEdit

2013–2015: Formation and Dyin'Edit

WE ARE BORN was first founded in 2013, in Stockholm. Nordahl and Rudberg were friends from music school, and formed the band after being introduced to Jespersson. Jespersson later invited his friend Jääskeläinen, and the band was formed. In 2014, they signed contracts with Universal Music Sweden and Finnish label Spinefarm Records.

They released their debut single, "Heaven or Hell", in 2015. The song was followed by the release of their debut studio album, Dyin', which was a modest success in both Sweden and Finland. They then went on a pan-Nordic tour.

2016–present: SvensksongEdit

In 2016, WE ARE BORN was confirmed to be taking part in Svensksong 1, with the song "The Way We Are". They performed the song in the first semi-final, and qualified directly for the final. In the final, they placed fourth.
