Ride have today announced dates for their This Is Not A Safe Place Album Tour. Starting in Norwich on Friday 29th November, the tour takes in huge shows across the UK, including Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow before reaching London’s Barbican on Monday 9th November. Tickets are on general sale at 10.00am on Friday 24th May. Fans can register from tomorrow (Wednesday 15th May) for exclusive pre-sale and album pre-order details at www.thebandride.com.
The Oxford four piece also today unveil the video for current single ‘Future Love’. Watch here. Speaking of the video, director Jacob Hopewell says “I have always been a huge fan of Buffalo 66 and when I first heard the track, the infamous Photobooth scene instantly sprung to mind. This idea of creating something quite voyeuristic, watching people at a party felt really interesting as we could show everything that people didn’t necessarily wish to reveal. It also gave us the opportunity to develop a few character plots and twists and push on a few themes that relate back to the Bands album title ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’. It was a fun one to put together and thought everyone involved really got on board and helped make it what it is.”
The tour and video unveil follows the announcement of their eagerly anticipated sixth studio album ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’. Due for release via Witchita Recordings on 16th August, the album sees Ride reunite with revered DJ, producer and remixer Erol Alkan, who was on production duties for 2017’s critically acclaimed ‘Weather Diaries’. Rekindling that creative partnership has once again seen Ride push their sound forward, as hypnotic rhythms and washes of lush guitars come together with leftfield electronic influences. The combination creates a sound rich in their trademark shoegaze atmosphere, whilst simultaneously sounding fresh and creatively ambitious.
‘Future Love’ was the first song to be unveiled from ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’. An unguarded, gloriously optimistic song, ‘Future Love’ brings together many of Ride’s best loved elements. Layers of guitars’ chime and drone, as the Oxford quartet effortlessly meld shoegazing dynamics, melodic psychedelia with their distinctive Transatlantic harmonies. It’s a song steeped in the heady haze of the start of a relationship, when anything seems possible, and one that’s sure to strike a chord as the shimmering start of the summer comes into view.
