Listen: Ride, ‘Charm Assault’ — shoegaze legends’ first new music in 20 years

Reunited shoegaze legends Ride today debuted their first new music in 21 years, releasing the song “Charm Assault” that presumably is a taste of the band’s as-yet-announced fifth studio album, which is expected out sometime this summer.

The new song is produced by Erol Alkan and mixed by Alan Moulder.

Ride — Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence “Loz” Colbert and Steve Queralt — announced plans to reunite in late 2014, then toured the U.S. and Europe in 2015. Late last year, the band announced plans to record a follow-up to 1996’s Tarantula and release it this coming summer.

Hear Ride’s new track below.
