Ride share “Repetition” off new LP

Ride at Brooklyn Steel
Ride at Brooklyn Steel in 2017 (more by Ester Segretto)

Reunited shoegazers Ride have shared a second single off their upcoming album This Is Not A Safe Place (due 8/16 via Wichita), “Repetition.” It shows off a different side of Ride than first single “Future Love,” going back and forth between danceable rock and wall-of-sound shoegaze. Andy Bell says:

I haven’t got tired yet of blasting this track. “Repetition” is at the absolute heart of ‘This Is Not A Safe Place.’ It was one of the very first songs written for the album, and has always felt to me like one of the best songs I’ve written. It has a great dual harmony vocal from myself and Mark. Steve came up with the brilliant Juno 6 bassline that starts the song, which he overdubbed on our last day of recording for the album, Loz puts down a monster of a drum track, it’s both very experimental and very pop in approach and that’s what Ride always tried to do in the early days. For me it succeeds in bringing me back to all of the things we were into and talked about when we were 18, but also being of the moment, in 2019. I know I am speaking for the whole band, and Erol, when I say we are really proud of this record, and we hope you enjoy it.

Listen below.

As mentioned, Ride also have an upcoming tour, including NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on September 21 (tickets). They’re also playing Chicago’s Riot Fest. All dates are listed below.
