Plainride Releasing "Return Of The Jackalope"

Having shared stages with the likes of Nashville Pussy, 1000mods, Valley Of The Sun, The Atomic Bitchwax and Greenleaf, the German quartet Plaineride initially self-released debut album "Return Of The Jackalope" back in the summer of 2015.

It was only a matter of time before the album would soon find its way to Ripple Music HQ, where it was subsequently picked up and played ad infinitum. Endowed with the sound of 70s rock and roll and heavy stoned-out psych, "Return of the Jackalope" is as thunderous as it is mysterious.

On February 10th, 2017, Ripple Music will officially re-release "Return of the Jackalope" on CD/vinyl/digital formats and in the meantime you can stream the album in full below.
