The Rides discuss old-school album Pierced Arrow

The Rides have released a video shot during the making of their second album, Pierced Arrow, focusing on their old-school approach to recording.

Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg release the follow-up to 2013 debut Can’t Get Enough on May 6 via Provogue Records. They’ve already streamed their tracks Virtual World, Kick Out Of It and I’ve Got To Use My Imagination.

They recorded on to analogue tape using a vintage Neve mixing console. Shepherd says: “We make records the way they were originally intended to be done. You can hear the progression between the first and second album, establishing who we are as The Rides.”

The blues-rock supergroup tour North America in May and June.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
