Legendary shoegazers Ride are back with "Charm Assault", their first new music in over 20 years.
"Charm Assault" previews the group's next album. It's mixed by Alan Moulder - who worked on 1990's Nowhere and produced Going Blank Again. The album - which is apparently gonna be “equal parts Motörhead And William Basinski” - is produced by Erol Alkan and follows Ride's most recent studio record, Tarantula, released in 1996.
"'Charm Assault' is a pretty straightforward expression of frustration and disgust at the people who currently run our country," says the band's Andy Bell. "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."
