This Is Not A Safe Place

2LP Vinyl

Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Includes digital download. 2019 release. Ride return with the sixth studio album of their career and their second since reforming in 2015. As with their previous album, the highly acclaimed Weather Diaries, Erol Alkan was in the producer’s chair, whilst career-long collaborator Alan Moulder (with Caesar Edmunds) mixed the album. The album’s title was inspired by one of the hobo code symbols once used by those who travelled the railroads of the US, and then found in the early artwork of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The phrase clearly resonates with the current state of the world politically and environmentally. This Is Not A Safe Place is arguably the Ride album with the broadest sonic palette thus far. You can hear sounds and styles that span their entire catalogue but, both musically and lyrically, this is clearly an album made by a band who love being back together and who are at the very top of their game.
