Chromatics – “Time Rider”

    The last time anyone saw the Chromatics, they were performing in a forest with Julee Cruise on the penultimate episode of Twin Peaks: The Return. Beyond that, however, they haven’t actually toured together in nearly five years. That all changes in 2019.

    Today, the band has announced their first tour in half a decade that kicks off on April 30th. A press release notes they’ll be revisiting “their favorite moments” from Night Drive, Kill For Love, Cherry, and the as-yet-released Dear Tommy. What’s more, they’ll be sharing dates with other Italians Do Better mainstays in Desire and In Mirrors.

    To ignite the hype, they’ve also dropped a new song titled “Time Rider” that finds vocalist Ruth Radelet riding on a motorcycle that doubles as a metaphor for both time and death. “Can I take your hand? I want to ride with you into the storm,” she sings.
