RIDE has today announced the forthcoming release of the ‘Tomorrow’s Shore’ EP, available on 16th February on 12” vinyl, digital download and streaming services. Kicking off with recent single ‘Pulsar’, the four track EP is made up of new songs ‘Keep It Surreal’, ‘Cold Water People’ and ‘Catch You Dreaming’. Apocalyptic closer ‘Catch You Dreaming’ is unveiled today as the second single to be lifted from the EP. A defiantly reflective, blissed out, yet wistful six minute zero gravity swirl, the track showcases yet another side to the reborn and rejuvenated Ride, who last summer returned with their first new music in twenty years. Greeted by a hail of critical and commercial success, the Oxford four piece – Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Loz Colbert, and Steve Queralt – teamed up with producer Erol Alkan and mixer Alan Moulder (the man behind the controls of their classic albums ‘Nowhere’ and ‘Going Blank Again’) for their acclaimed 2017 album ‘Weather Diaries’, and again with this new EP. The album also saw Ride once again working with Wichita Records’ Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with the band during their early years on Creation Records.
Speaking of ‘Catch You Dreaming’, lead guitarist and vocalist Andy Bell says:
“Catch You Dreaming” is written from the perspective of being one of the last two people alive, watching as the Universe is ending. The protagonist looks back over the time when humanity existed, realising that we as humans brought about our own inevitable demise. Then the couple look back over their own lives of shared memories and as they are sharing this moment, everything vaporises. It’s a love song about fate, nostalgia, and having no regrets.”
Today also sees RIDE announce a headline show at ULU on February 16th to mark the release of ‘Tomorrow’s Shore’. Having graced main stages at Glastonbury, Primavera and Latitude in recent years, and completed a sold out headline tour culminating at London’s Forum, tickets for the intimate confines of ULU – where the band played some of their seminal shows in the early 90’s – are sure the be in intense demand when they go on sale today.
