Ride

Label: Wichita

 

This is a pre-order and will ship or be available for pick up on 8/16/2019. The LP version is the clear vinyl with green splatter (limited to 1,000).

Ride return with the 6th studio album of their career and their second since reforming in 2015 and signing to Wichita. As with their previous album, the highly acclaimed Weather Diaries, Erol Alkan was in the producers chair, whilst career-long collaborator Alan Moulder (with Caesar Edmunds) mixed the album. The album’s title was inspired by one of the hobo code symbols once used by those who traveled the railroads of the US, and then found in the early artwork of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The phrase clearly resonates with the current state of the world politically and environmentally. This Is Not A Safe Place is arguably the Ride album with the broadest sonic palette thus far. You can hear sounds and styles that span their entire catalog but, both musically and lyrically, this is clearly an album made by a band who love being back together and who are at the very top of their game.
