  In further news, their second LP Raw Dents is due to be re-issued on vinyl during June by Tizona records.

“Dead Rider carry distinct echoes of early Bad Seeds, Blixa Bargeld and John Cale in his freakoid hockey-mask phase. Not an album to throw your arms around after first date, but given time it reveals itself as a dark, if bruising, pleasure.” – PROG

“Dead Rider sound inspired, electrified by the promise of the synthetic and make the most of the possibilities it offers. Flatulent blarts of divebombing synth bass, wayward electronics, ambient dropouts and sci-fi harmonies, and none of it sounds like selfconscious gimmickry. Even at their most obtuse and knotted there’s a swagger to their songs, a libidinal charge that recalls the similarly inspired angularity of 90s landmarks such as Shudder To Think’s Pony Express Record and Girls Against Boys’ House Of GVSB while sounding completely and utterly of the moment. It would be a tragedy if an album as potentially groundbreaking as Chills On Glass were to get lost” – WIRE

“The unwitting star of US Maple and now viscose virtuoso Todd Rittmann has hit on a formula with Dead Rider. Let’s hope they get the audience that they deserve, one that US Maple should always have had.” – THE QUIETUS

“Chills On Glass is an exhilarating record with a variety of shades, but its biggest achievement is its ability to create such weird and wonderful sounds whilst maintaining the potential to appeal to more than a small minority.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT
