OXFORD indie-rockers Ride have revealed details of their forthcoming album.

The LP, This Is Not A Safe Place, will be released on August 16 via Wichita Recordings.

This Is Not A Safe Place sees the rejuvenated four-piece of Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence ‘Loz’ Colbert and Steve Queralt reunite with revered DJ, producer and remixer Erol Alkan, who was on production duties for 2017’s 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, while simultaneously sounding fresh and creatively ambitious.

The first song to be released is Future Love  a slice of classic Ride, with layers of guitars, fuzzed-out dynamics, melodic psychedelia and their distinctive Transatlantic harmonies.

Following the successful release and hectic touring schedule from Weather Diaries – including their co-headline set at last year’s Common People Oxford festival – the band gathered influences from sources such as the Jean Michel Basquiat exhibition at London's Barbican and the post-punk sound of The Fall and Sonic Youth, to make an album which contains echoes of their earliest days as a band, while bringing the sound bang up to date.

The album came together in a matter of weeks at the end of 2018, and start of this year and sees Ride reunited with sound engineer Alan Moulder.
