Riding Alone For Thousands Of Miles: Bad Panda #18
Riding Alone For Thousands Of Miles are an immensely talented outfit from New Jersey, who make tense instrumental rock in the vein of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The 10-piece band’s name is taken from a Chinese/Japanese movie released in 2005 and their debut album from 2008, A Boldogság Minden Reményét Elragadták (from hungarian, “All The Hope Of Happiness Has Been Stolen”) is one of the best kept secret among the post-rock lovers.
The band has no website and is virtually faceless on the internet (except for their last.fm page) and Brick City Love Song is a new track that anticipate their new album (to be released next summer).
"We recorded this song to 8-track in our now abandoned rehearsal space in Newark NJ. Mike was fighting his illness and could not be there. One month later he passed away. We dedicate this song to Michael, please rest in peace."
