Following the release of two new songs last week, British band Ride are back today to announce that they will be playing a handful of North American shows in July. The band will head to Toronto, Boston, New York, Philly, and DC for a slew of headline performances, with tickets available now. Last week Ride shared “Charm Assault,” followed the day after by “Home Is A Feeling,” the first new music that the group has released in 20 years.
Ride’s upcoming album, scheduled for release this summer through Wichita Recordings, sees the band reuniting with label co-founders Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who they worked with during the band’s early years on Creation Records. It also brings the band back together with mixer Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers) who mixed their 1990 album Nowhere and produced its follow up Going Blank Again.
After a lengthy hiatus, Ride reformed in 2014. Comprised of Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence Colbert, and Steve Queralt, the band sold out headline tours around the world, as well as show stopping turns at festivals including Coachella, Primavera and Field Day. Hear “Home Is A Feeling” and “Charm Assault” below, see below for details on the band’s upcoming shows, and stay tuned for more from Ride.
