UK shoegaze pioneers RIDE announce Australia/NZ tour

With special guest  MERCURY REV

Touring new album INTERPLAY and classic catalogue in August

RIDE’s reunion in 2014 meant that for long-time fans of the beloved group, they were about to get a brand-new era from the band who had been responsible for one of the most important waves of British music through the ‘80s and ‘90s.

 

Forming in Oxford, England in 1988, RIDE set the blueprint for the shoegaze scene with the release of their landmark debut album ‘Nowhere’- a timeless classic inspired a wave of shoegaze bands to follow in years to come.

Armed with their stellar seventh studio album ‘INTERPLAY, the music RIDE has produced has remained nothing short of exciting.

Joining RIDE on this epic return to Australia/NZ is beloved indie/psych rock group MERCURY REV. Led by Jonathan Donahue and Sean ‘Grasshopper’ Mackowiak, MERCURY REV has continued to reinvent and celebrate their classic sound that has been unafraid to explore new forms throughout the ‘90s, ‘00s and into present day. The band’s last studio record, a reimagining of Bobbie Gentry’s seminal album, THE DELTA SWEETE, saw MERCURY REV collaborate with a number of artists in reworking the classic material. BOBBY GENTRY’S THE DELTA SWEETE REVISITED featured the likes of Norah Jones, Phoebe Bridgers, Beth Orton and Margo Price, brought into the MERCURY REV world. Eleven studio albums, as well as numerous compilation, soundtrack and live albums to their name, MERCURY REV’s impact is undeniable.
