Charm Assault single

First new song released since 1996. Press statement states: ""Charm Assault" is taken from Ride's forthcoming album, due to be released Summer 2017 on Wichita Recordings. The album was produced by Erol Alkan and mixed by the band's longtime collaborator, Alan Moulder. Andy Bell says “Charm Assault is a pretty straightforward expression of frustration and disgust at the people who currently run our country. The tour in 2015 was a good way of reminding us what we were good at in the first place and Charm Assault feels like a natural continuation from our peak. When we started writing together again we tried to imagine we'd kept on making music all this time, and this was just the latest one.” An alternative sleeve (see below) was added to download sites on 18th May 2017.

Watch unseen footage from 1993

Giles Borg who filmed RIDE throughout their later years has released unseen footage of the band filmed in 1993. The video accompanied by Let's Get Lost includes clips from the Brighton leg of the Daytripper gigs along with live footage from Poland two months later. The video was launched on the Quietus by long term fan Joe Clay. Here's what he had to say... 'Borg's relationship with RIDE stretches back to their formative years. One of the first gigs RIDE played was supporting one of Borg's bands, and he ended up spending a couple of years on the road and in the studio with the band, shooting a film about the making of their third album, Carnival of Light, that was never edited or released.' 'There are hours of unseen footage going right up to the recording of the band's final album, Tarantula. When the band split in 1996, the film was shelved. It is unclear whether any more footage will surface as the bulk of it is on Beta SP (16mm), but Borg has fond memories of his time with the band. "Sadly the film never got finished, but we had some great fun along the way," he recalls. "The day after the gig in Poland, we went to see England play Poland [in a World Cup Qualifier], which ended with us all being chased down the road by the police."' Watch the video below.

Mailing List – News update – February 2003

Below is an email sent out to all subscribers of the band's mailing list in the winter of 2003 with various updates about the band. various bits of news hello all lots of bits of news (i'll try to be brief) RIDEOX4.COM the official website address has been nabbed by someone else and Ignition Records are currently trying to wrestle it back. In the meantime we've moved the site over to www.rideox4.net or www.rideox4.co.uk. I know that the site is desperately in need of an update but please bear with us as things are rather busy at the moment. BBC SESSIONS ALBUM The tracklisting has been agreed and we're in the process of sorting out the licence from the BBC and also getting the artwork and sleevenotes together. With a burst of energy this should see the light of day early in the Summer. It'll be 17 tracks culled from the 5 main sessions that the band recorded between 1990 and 1994 at the BBC studios in London and Manchester. If all goes well then it should be properly available worldwide (unlike the Best Of album which has been limited to the UK and North America plus any export sales). By the way, the Box Set has been re-pressed once again as it seems that demand is continuing to out-strip everyone's expectations - very pleasing! US RELEASE OF BEST OF The single album Best Of (with a four track bonus disc) has been picking up lots of nice press and radio support in the US. So much so that Mark is going out to the States very soon to do some promotion and to play some shows. The US release is on the mighty-fine First Time Records. MARK GARDENER GIGS Yes really. Mark is going out to the States to play an acoustic tour featuring about 70% Ride songs and 30% his new material. The first date is at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas on 13th March and then he makes his way around the country between the 1st and the 27th April. For a full list of dates as they get confirmed then have a look at Piero's Ticket To Ride Mark Gardener microsite. To warm up for the tour Mark is going to play a short(ish) set (about 30 minutes) at one of the regular Trailer Park nights run by Oxford's Truck Records. This show will be on Tuesday 4th March at the Cellar in the centre of Oxford. You can get tickets in advance online at www.wegottickets.com. PIERO'S MICROSITE http://www.mareasub.it/ride/mgmicro EXCELLENT ONLINE COMPILATION As part of the build-up to the US tour Mark has contributed a track to an MP3 compilation put together by www.excellentonline.com. Full details on their site, of course.
