Ride announce ‘Weather Diaries’, their first album in 20 years

The album’s being released in June via Wichita.

After a hell of a lot of teasing, and a couple of new tracks, Ride have announced their new album!

The band’s first record for over 20 years is called ‘Weather Diaries’, and is coming out on 16th June via Wichita. It follows 1996 LP ‘Tarantula’.

Two new singles, ‘Charm Assault’ and ‘Home Is A Feeling’, have previewed the record, and the band have shared a new video for the former.

Ride are set to play a bunch of festivals this year, starting with the 6 Music Festival in Glasgow tomorrow night (24th March), and including Latitude and Benicassim.

We recently caught up with the band’s Andy Bell to chat through all of his musical obsessions. Read the New Tricks feature here.
