RIDE THE SKY Calls It Quits

April 22, 2008

RIDE THE SKY, the new band featuring ex-HELLOWEEN drummer and MASTERPLAN founder Uli Kusch alongside ex-TEARS OF ANGER/BEYOND TWILIGHT singer Bjrn Jansson, guitarist Benny Jansson, and bassist Mathias Grans (XSAVIOR),has split up.

According to the group, "[Neither] the bandmembers nor record company seem to have the urge to make a second album. There was not much media focus and together with a minor support from the record company, we came to the point where it was just not worth the work to even try to complete a second album."

RIDE THE SKY's video for the song "New Protection", which was shot in Ume, Sweden with director Owe Lingvall of Village Road Film, can be viewed below. The track is the title cut of the group's debut album, which was released in Germany in August 2007 via Nuclear Blast. An e-card for the effort can be found at this location.

"New Protection" (artwork) was recorded and mixed by Benny Jansson at Zinkens Studio in Stockholm, Sweden and was mastered by Christofer Stannow at Cosmos Mastering.
