We Be the Echo is an American instrumental rock band from San Francisco. They play a blend of math rock, brutal prog, punk, jazz and heavy metal with dub influenced bass lines. The band's sound is based on melodic and rhythmically challenging short songs that often incorporate shred guitar. They formed in 2003 from the remnants of the Bay Area experimental band Bm Relocation Program.
The band members have also variously played (or continue to play) in other bands/projects including UK-based hardcore punk bands Voorhees and Break It Up, and San Francisco-based The John Francis, Life Fire In Peopledom, The Mao, Drift Erratics and others.
We Be the Echo is a phrase the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe claimed to have heard coming from a gravestone 1 while working as a grave digger in Bingley, West Yorkshire.
