Ride have announced a run of UK tour dates for this Autumn. Tickets go on sale here at 10.00am on Wednesday June 7th. Having already confirmed a handful of eagerly anticipated UK festival shows for this summer – including Glastonbury, Latitude and Green Man Festival – and a truly special homecoming show at Oxford New Theatre on July 10th, today’s announcement of a full UK tour adds to what’s shaping up to a burgeoning year of live activity for the revitalised four piece.
In March, Ride revealed details of their first album in over twenty years, ‘Weather Diaries’ to be released on June 16th via Wichita Recordings. Produced by legendary DJ, producer and remixer Erol Alkan, ‘Weather Diaries’ is packed with all the classic elements that made Ride one of the defining bands of the early ‘90s. Trembling distortion, beautiful harmonies, pounding rhythms, shimmering soundscapes and great songwriting all combine to make an album that’s ambitious in scope, timeless and thoroughly addictive. The album will be released through Wichita Recordings and sees the band reunited with label co-founders Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with Ride 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 seminal 1990 album ‘Nowhere’ and produced it’s follow up ‘Going Blank Again’.
After a lengthy hiatus, Ride reformed in 2014. Comprised of Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Loz Colbert, and Steve Queralt, the band sold out headline tours around the world to a plethora of critical acclaim, as well as show-stopping turns at festivals including Coachella, Primavera and Field Day.
