STREAM: “Let Me Be Your Light” – 
VIDEO: “Seventh Moon” – 
“The Door Behind the Door is beautifully slow burning, its grinding guitars and heavy layers of dark, feted romance akin to Spiritualized and The Jesus and Mary Chain.” -The Guardian 


‘Let Me Be Your Light’ comes from The Black Ryder’s upcoming new album The Door Behind The Door, which will be released on February 24. The album is already drawing positive comparisons in the press to notable acts such as Spiritualized, My Bloody Valentine, Sigur Rós, & Slowdive.


Following a string of USA/UK headline shows in March, the band will head out on tour in support of The Jesus and Mary Chain, on their 30th Anniversary of Psychocandy tour.

What the press has said about The Black Ryder:

“The Black Ryder tends to swirl together breathy post-rock crescendos, plaintive shoegaze melodies, and psychedelic sprawl to create a greater, sprawling whole.”
– Noisey


“The perfect accompaniment to slowly losing your mind (in the best possible way)…just settle in for the long, blissed-out ride.” – Rolling Stone   


“They sound like the greatest band that Creation never released in their golden period and their blissful tripped out indie perfection is quite magical.” – Louder Than War


“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.”
– Stereogum
