The Black Ryder is a collaboration between Australian duo Aimee Nash & Scott Von Ryper now based in Los Angeles.
Their debut album ‘Buy The Ticket, Take the Ride’ was released through Mexican Summer (USA) in September 2010 & EMI Music / The Anti-Machine Machine (Australia). Rolling Stone Magazine Australia included the album in their Top Albums of the Year.
The much anticipated follow up to their acclaimed debut due for release 24th Feb 2015, ‘The door behind the door’ transforms The Black Ryder’s kaleidoscopic sound and vision into something even more vivid, uncompromising, and sublime, bringing in new textures and emotions and moments of catharsis and transcendence.

The band will be playing shows both in the USA + UK in support of their forthcoming album release & will be joining The Jesus & Mary Chain as special guests on their Psychocandy USA tour in May.
Praise For The Black Ryder

The LA-based Australian duo (comprised of former couple Aimée Nash & Scott Von Ryper) does so to great effect on its latest record, The Door Behind the Door.”
STEREOGUM: “Ethereal drone, ceremonial percussion, and dead-eyed harmonies carry on together until they build up to something sublime. There’s never really a climax because the whole thing feels like one overwhelming wave of gorgeous noise.”
UNCUT MAGAZINE: “8/10 – Nu-shoegazers trip the dark fantastic. Offering black-on-black swirls of hypnotic psych gloom, The Black Ryder’s belated follow-up to 2009’s ‘Buy The Ticket, Take the Ride’ is a heavy trip indeed… constructing intricate mini-universes of MBV-like noise on the brilliant ‘Let Me Be Your Light’ or exploring Primal Scream-ish acid-soul on ‘Throwing S
