Ride Your Heart is the sophomore studio album by LA-based punk/psychedelic pop band, released on April 1, 2016 through Dead Oceans. The album was produced by Carlos de la Garza and Joe Chiccarelli at Sunset Sound and Music Friends Studio in July-August 2015.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the album's title, Jennifer Clavin explained that one evening, high on psychedelics and up all night, she and a friend passed a freaky couple at Echo Park Lake peddling homemade religious pamphlets. "One page was a bunch of cut and paste sentences with images. I'm always really intrigued by those crazy DIY religious books. It all was so perfect at that moment because it was about embracing the dark side of life instead of pretending it isn't there because it's all beautiful and I wouldn't give any of it up for anything." Welcome The Worms was sprawled across the tripped out pamphlet and the phrase stuck.
