The Nude Party – Ride On: 13th Floor New Song Of The Day

The Nude Party returns with Rides On March 10th via New West Records. The 13-song set was produced by The Nude Party and mixed by Sam Cohen (Kevin

Here’s what the folks at New West have to say about it:

Rides On is the anticipated follow up to The Nude Party’s 2020 LP Midnight Manor
which debuted at #1 on the Alternative New Artists Album chart.

The Nude PartyMet with critical acclaim, in their 4 out of 5 Star review, Mojo Magazine said they “…thrillingly embrace the moment… Top Class” while The Line of Best Fit said, “The band
started with a really strong debut album, but Midnight Manor somehow takes this to
new heights. You’ll hear the Stones, you’ll hear Lou Reed, you’ll even hear a bit of
Alice Cooper in there – and you’ll come away having connected with a new, intensely
fulfilling sense of cool.”

All songs included on Rides On were written by the band
with the exception of “Somebody Tryin’ to Hoodoo Me,” by Dr. John.

Rides On, the band confidently says, is their best record. It’s also the most
homegrown and the most organic record they have created to date. Unlike their first
two albums, they decided to produce Rides On themselves.

Tired of paying for studio time and being rushed, they used the funds they’d saved and spent a year building a studio space out of a barn in upstate NY. When the band met the Tampa-based engineer Matthew Horner, they discovered they had the opposite problems:
Matthew had a collection of incredible gear with no studio and The Nude Party had a
great new studio with no gear. So they invited him to move his equipment up to the
Catskills to record an album together.

The Nude Party methodically worked at their own pace. Out were the sessions lasting a strict handful of days. In were impromptu writing moments and picking every sound as they went along. The relaxed atmosphere of the sessions, and arriving with only loosely structured material, allowed the band to thrive in the studio. It also unleashed a diverse sonic texture compared to their previous releases.
The lack of pressure allowed them to record over 20 songs, including some that
dabbled in electro-pop and stripped-down country before settling on the final 13

Sonically, the song Ride On is reminiscent of Sticky Fingers-era Stones, but its lyrics are
mini-vignettes where frontman Patton Magee sings about persevering through
adversity. Of the song, Magee says “It started very literally with a teary-eyed old man
telling me about a bull rider he met down in Mexico named Alfredo. I took note of
the conversation because it felt powerful somehow. Shaun in the band had written
this great arrangement of chords and when the two came together, the story just
kinda poured out. You always hear people say things like, ‘oh, the Rolling Stones
should just hang it up… they’re way over the hill.’ I feel bad for people who think that
way. I’m saying exactly the opposite. If you’re alive, then live. No brakes. Ride on.”

A live favorite across the globe, The Nude Party has appeared at massive festivals like Lollapalooza, All Points East, Splendour In The Grass, Great Escape, Newport Folk Festival, and Bonnaroo, where many publications named them one of the best of the festival. Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, and Orvelle Peck all became full-blown fans and vocal supporters of the band, bringing them along on tour as well. The Nude
Party will launch their initial live dates in support of Rides On prior to the album’s release with a Three Night Stand in Los Angeles beginning on February 17th. The second leg of the tour picks up in April and features stops at The Independent in San Francisco, The Troubadour in Los Angeles, the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, and more.
