RIDE Announce New East Coast Tour dates

Ride announce new East Coast tour dates, adding to their existing world tour

After announcing last November they would be reuniting for a world tour, shoegaze legends Ride are finally back. Their O2 Academy homecoming show, early last month, was their first show in nearly 20 years, the Oxford four-piece – Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence ‘Loz’ Colbert and Steve Queralt – have since been back, and playing some pretty intense gigs.

Today, Ride have announced they will be returning to America later this year for an East Coast tour following their currently scheduled international dates. The band has also showed a live clip of them performing “Leave Them All Behind,” from their April 13th show in San Francisco.

Ride are the band who slammed the door firmly shut on the (by then) flailing 80s pop movement and paved the way for bands like Primal Scream and Oasis to shine in the Britpop era. They helped Alan McGee’s Creation Records achieve its first UK chart breakthrough as well as enjoying a successful career in the US, Europe and Japan while many of their peers struggled to break out of the UK scene, as well as having an international record deal with Seymour Stein’s legendary Sire Records.

The band’s name started to get thrown around during a brief nu-gaze movement around 2006 with bands like Animal Collective, Deerhunter and Panda Bear all citing Ride as heavy influences.
