The Rides have released a trailer for their upcoming second album exclusively via TeamRock.

Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg issue Pierced Arrow on May 6 via Provogue/Mascot Label Group.

And album engineer Ed Cherney says the recording process has seen the supergroup return to the early roots of American blues rock.

He says: “The recording process has been old school. We’re approaching it like it’s 1970. Real performances by real musicians, with analogue technology.”

The band agree, saying the old school process has been easier to settle into as the trio ave got more used to working together since the release of 2013 debut Can’t Get Enough.

They say: “We make records the way they were originally meant to be done. We use many of the first takes. We’re more sure of ourselves and you can hear the progression between the first album and this one, establishing who we are as The Rides.”

The band launch a US tour in May.
