Nov 30, 2108 saw the release of two box sets containing three CDs each. One was for their 1985 classic LP, State Of Our Union, and the other was for their 1987 LP, Two Fisted Tales (Sid's fave LR's LP).
February 15, 2019 saw the release of the first new Long Ryders studio album in thirty years, Psychedelic Country Soul. It soon hit NUMBER ONE on both the official UK Americana/Alt-Country charts and on Amazon UK's Americana chart.
Produced by the band's dear chum Ed Stasium (Ramones, The Smithereens) it is the band's best album and has all the hallmarks of the band who kick-started Alt-Country and Americana.
Like their peers in the L.A. Paisley Underground movement of the '80s, the band loved the sounds of the '60s, but the Long Ryders were influenced by the roots-centric approach of the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and Buffalo Springfield. The Long Ryders were a major influence on the alt-country movement which rose up a few years after the band originally split up.
In late 2015, Cherry Red Records released a Long Ryders box set, Final Wild Songs, which included 10-5-60, Native Sons, State of Our Reunion, and Two-Fisted Tales in full, along with rare and unreleased tracks and a 1985 live concert. It was received five star reviews worldwide.
In April 2019 the Long Ryders played sold out gigs in Europe, with a USA tour coming in September, and with further European dates in October/November, all in support of their new studio album, Psychedelic Country Soul.
