For the first time in 20 years, Oxford-born quartet Ride will play three shows with one of them being the Roxy in Los Angeles on April 8 and the other two in Brooklyn and Oxford. This marks the long-awaited reunion of one of Creation Records’ first global success stories. These shows will be pre-fest to their performance at Coachella Festival later this month.
Ride formed in 1988 and throughout and became a part of the British shoegaze and post-punk scene. The band released four albums between 1990 and 1996, with the first two achieving UK certification status. The last time they performed together was in 1995 at the Benicassim Festival and then soon after they quit in 1996 and have been inactive for almost 20 years.
But now they’re back, playing at the Roxy – the same venue where the band made its Los Angeles debut in the early 90s. Announcing their second reunion in November 2014, they are ready for a comeback so be sure to be there! Also on hand is Eagulls from Leeds, England. Tickets for the Roxy show April 8 go on sale at 3 p.m. pacific time today!
