This Is Not A Safe Place LP

Sixth studio album by Ride, This Is Not A Safe Place was released on August 16th 2019. The press release states: Following the successful release and hectic touring schedule from ‘Weather Diaries’, the band gathered influences from sources such as the aforementioned Basquiat exhibition, 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 these elements into 2019. ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’ came together in a matter of weeks at the end of 2018, and start of 2019, the sound of a band embracing their new found creativity and rejuvenated dynamic. Their sixth record also sees Ride reunite with sound engineer Alan Moulder, who is on mixing duties for his fourth Ride record, following ‘Weather Diaries’, ‘Going Blank Again’ and their 1990 debut album ‘Nowhere’ (an album whose artwork is wonderfully echoed on the newly revealed cover of ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’). One of the leading lights of the early 90’s shoegaze scene, Ride reformed in 2014, releasing their first album in over 20 years in 2017. ‘Weather Diaries’was greeted by a raft of critical and commercial acclaim, reaching number 11 in the UK album charts. It also saw Ride reunited with Wichita Records’ Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with the band during their early years on Creation Records. Inside of the gatefol sleeve Ride guitarist Andy Bell discovered the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat at the Barbican’s ‘Boom For Real’ exhibition in late 2017. In this episode (see video below) of Expert Voices, Andy and Ride bassist Steve Queralt talk about how Basquiat’s creative methods remind them of their own artistic process. Get a sneak preview of a track from the band’s new album as they explain how Basquiat’s use of symbols inspired song lyrics and led to the album title and art work.
