British shoegazing icons Ride reformed in 2014 and have been touring, and are releasing a new album, Weather Diaries, next Friday (June 16) via Wichita. Previously they shared its first two singles (and their first new songs in 21 years), the straight up rocker “Charm Assault” and the dreamier “Home Is a Feeling.” They also shared a video for “Charm Assault” that was co-directed by Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe, along with Jean de Oliveira, and another song from the album, “All I Want,” as well as a 10-minute remix of “All I Want” by GLOK, which is actually Ride’s own Andy Bell. Now the band has shared Weather Diaries near-six-minute long opening track, “Lannoy Point,” which offers a slow and satisfying build into the album. Listen to it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Erol Alkan (Klaxons, Mystery Jets, Beyond the Wizards Sleeve) produced the new album, which was mixed by Alan Moulder (who also mixed Ride’s classic debut album, Nowhere, and produced their Going Blank Again).

Ride haven’t released a new studio album since 1996’s Tarantula, which was put out after the band split up and was poorly received. The quartet’s original run lasted from 1988 to 1996 and included four studio albums (Nowhere, Going Blank Again, Carnival of Light, and Tarantula). In 2015 they also released Nowhere25, a 25th anniversary reissue of their 1990-released debut album Nowhere. A few years ago we interviewed Ride’s Mark Gardener and Andy Bell about Nowhere and you can read that article here. And then in 2015 in another interview we did with Gardener he went through Nowhere track-by-track and you can read that here.
