PEARL JAM guitarist Jeff Ament has revealed a second album from his side-project RNDM!
Entitled Ghost Riding, the album is due for release on March 4th through Dine Alone Records. It has so far been described as “an 11-track eclectic, but cohesive collection of songs, channeling influences from Bowie, and featuring electro-industrial, indie-rock, blues-inspired and even a few funkier tracks“.
Also comprised of singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur and THE FASTBACKS/WAR BABIES drummer Richard Stuverud, the band released their debut effort Acts in 2012.
Two tracks from RNDM have been released so far – STRAY and Ghost Riding.
Of the title-track, Ament says: “Ghost Riding embodies what we went after on this record: pushing ourselves creatively with new songwriting approaches, unique sounds, groove and uncomfortable instrumentation… Joseph wrote a great take of longing of childhood past, really beautiful words”
You can listen to both songs below:
