DEAD RIDER ARE ROARIN’ DOWN YOUR TRAIL AT 45 RPM;
NEW SINGLE “NEW END” B/W “UNCOMFY” UPCOMING ON DRAG CITY 23 MARCH
With glints mirroring off their gun-metal blue fenders, Dead Rider aim for the horizon. After scorching the earth with 2014’s Chills on Glass, Chicago’s finest return to throw a pair of new songs to into the public’s yearning maw.“New End” b/w “Uncomfy” shall be released on Drag City on 7″, FLAC and MP3 formats on 23rd March.
Dead Rider speculatively examine potential futures, Black Mirror-style. Side A considers the late night thoughts of the insomniac, as he contemplates the endless parade of humanity who’ve passed through the very room in which he’s trying fruitlessly to sleep. How many of them were there? They who laid in this exact spot? Stared up at that exact crack? As sheets of black guitar reign all around, these are the thoughts you might have – when you are facing a “New End”.
The B-side features a post-apocalyptic B-boy trying to fight off boredom and a belly ache. And that’s enough said – the collapsed civilisation has left only broken beats, hot magnetic pulses of rhythm and scraps of raps. It can get a bit “Uncomfy”.
But wait, there’s more! The frontier spans far and wide, and Dead Rider are settling out to do what they do best – ride full throttle on tour throughout Europe. Here are the tour dates with more to be confirmed…
