Get ready for Ride The Movies! Ride the Movies are a four piece Alternative Rock band from Saratoga Springs, NY, with a mission to bring their music to the world.
It all started in 2017, when founder and frontman Noah Chieco stepped out from behind the drum kit to assemble a new kind of band. After many auditions, the band formed and released their debut album, “The End of Who I Was” on August 17, 2018. This record hosts live favorites such as “Hollow”, “Insomnia”, and “Straight Shooter”. Following many local shows and an expansion of the lineup, the band wrote and recorded their full-length sophomore record during Noah’s last year of college. “Atomic Shakedown” was released on December 13, 2019. This record hosts live favorites such as “Rock ‘N Roll”, “All Ears”, “Chemistry”, amongst others. Both “The End of Who I Was” and “Atomic Shakedown” helped form the band’s sound and begin to build traction until the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic. During the inital quarantine, the band released a B-Sides EP as well as a live record in the studio, “Live at Wandering Sound”. All of the band’s releases to date have been written, recorded, mixed and mastered all by frontman Noah Chieco and the band at his Saratoga Springs recording studio, Wandering Sound Studio.
The band secretly recorded a 24 Song follow up to “Atomic Shakedown” during the lockdown, which became their third record, “Moondrive”. Released on July 23, 2021, this album is a blast of energy and sound, and features the brand new singles, “Coast to Coast”, “Give Me The Strength”, “In Or Out”, and many more.
