It was revealed, Tuesday, that shoegaze pioneers Ride will release a new album this summer via Wichita Recordings. “Great songs, loud guitars, beautiful harmonies, powerful rhythms” is promised by producer of the highly anticipated album, Erol Alkan.

Along with news about their album, Ride shared their first new song in nearly two decades, ‘Charm Assault‘. Lead singer, Andy Bell, speaking on ‘Charm Assault‘: “...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.”
