Ride have confirmed the second studio album since their 2014 reunion.
This Is Not A Safe Place will be released August 16th and, like its 2017 predecessor Weather Diaries, has been produced by Erol Alkan. First single Future Love is leading it off.
Ride proved they’re ‘still lightning in a bottle’ on Weather Diaries according to Live4ever’s review:
“An angry statement on chaotic times, this newly found skill for polemicising continues on Charm Assault, the lyrics a condemnation of Harridan politicians and their ethic-free circus, the music a churning pedal fest that bridges the gap between Tarantula’s trad-rock and the Smiths-inspired riffola of their vintage EPs.”
“For a collection of songs which begin in shimmering rebirth, Weather Diaries closes in the plaintive reflectiveness of White Sands, in substance little more than a few picked chords.”
