Ride, the Oxford four-piece whose recent reunion shows garnered rave press and 5* reviews across the board, have today announced a brand new UK tour for this October. The tour happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the release of the band’s debut album, Nowhere.
The nine date tour will kick off on 11 October at Leeds O2 Academy, before moving down to London’s O2 Academy Brixton, and then continuing around the UK until 22 October where the tour ends at the Birmingham Institute. An extra date at UEA, Norwich has been added for 12 October.
Since returning to the live scene back in April with a secret show in their hometown of Oxford, Ride have been travelling all over the world playing sold out headline shows in Glasgow, Manchester, London as well as shows in the US and Europe, plus festivals Coachella, Primavera and Field Day. Their loyal fans, who have been eagerly awaiting their reunion for the past twenty years, have not been disappointed.
When Nowhere dropped in October ’90, it not only became Creation’s first ever Top 75 album, shooting into the UK charts at #11 to blanket critical appreciation. Featuring long time classics such as Vapour Trail, Dreams Burn Down and Polar Bear, the album is widely considered one of the greatest albums of the shoegazing genre.
