Ride standing in a group, in the surrounds of a brutalist building

The Oxford-formed band return to London to celebrate the release of their forthcoming album This Is Not A Safe Place.

Released on Wichita Recordings, their latest album brings together many of Ride’s best loved elements. Amplifying layers of guitars with chimes and drones, the quartet meld psychedelia with their distinctive Transatlantic harmonies. Drawing inspiration from Jean Michel Basquiat, The Fall and Sonic Youth, expect sounds that echo their earliest days served with a twist of diverse and modern inspiration.
