The Nude Party are back with new album Rides On which will be out March 10 via New West. The band produced it themselves, recording at their leisure in a barn studio they built in upstate New York. Sam Cohen mixed.

The first single is the strummy, warmly rambling "Ride On" that's got a little Velvet Underground baked into its bones. “It started very literally with a teary-eyed old man telling me about a bull rider he met down in Mexico named Alfredo," says frontman Patton Magee. "I took note of the conversation because it felt powerful somehow. Shaun in the band had written this great arrangement of chords and when the two came together, the story just kinda poured out. You always hear people say things like, ‘oh, the Rolling Stones should just hang it up… they’re way over the hill.’ I feel bad for people who think that way. I’m saying exactly the opposite. If you’re alive, then live. No brakes. Ride on.” Listen to that below.

The Nude party have also announced a spring North American tour that hits Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 19. Tickets for that will be on sale soon. They've also got February dates in Los Angeles and Jacksonvillve, FL in February. All dates are listed below.
