RIDE To Release “Nowhere25” On November 6th

RIDE's “Nowhere25” out November 6th

Today RIDE kicked off their North American tour at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C, and to celebrate, the band has announced details of a special North American release of “Nowhere25” available on CD+DVD and vinyl from November 6th in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their debut album “Nowhere.”

The “Nowhere25” CD+DVD release will feature the expanded 15 track album alongside the live recording of the band’s concert at London’s Town & Country Club in March 1991. The package will be presented in an exclusive hardback cardboard case with a canvas-style cover, and include a 36 page booklet full of unseen photos and brand new sleeve notes written by vocalist/guitarist Andy Bell, compiled using the help of Ride fans via a Twitter Q&A.

All the original members of RIDE are currently in North America, about to embark on a string of east and west coast dates, including two-nights in New York City (with DIIV and Besnard Lakes supporting), various stops in California, Illinois, Texas and many more. For a full list of tour dates and ticket information, see below.

“Nowhere” was originally released on 15th October 1990, featuring classic tracks including “Vapour Trail,” “Polar Bear” and “Dreams Burn Down.” The 15 track album version features three tracks from the “Fall” EP, released 25 years ago today in September 1990 in the lead up to “Nowhere,” plus four songs from the “Today Forever” EP, which came out the week of the Town & Country Club show in March 1991. This show was part of a short UK tour to support “Today Forever,” the first new material from Ride since “Nowhere.”

“We were really driven, within the band, to improve on the songwriting, performances and production of the first two EPs, and create something special, an album which stood for our aesthetic and had a real artistic integrity”. – Andy Bell

“When we’d completed the album and it was all mixed and mastered, it seemed like we’d arrived, we’d made it…and what did that feel like? – Nowhere” – Loz Colbert

Ride are: Andy Bell (vocalist/guitars), Mark Gardener (vocalist/guitars), Steve Queralt (bass) and Laurence ‘Loz’ Colbert (drums).
