Ride announce 'Nowhere' 30th anniversary UK tour for April 2022!
Following on from 2019's UK top ten album 'This Is Not A Safe Place', shoegaze legends Ride have announced a UK tour for their seminal 1990 Creation Records debut album 'Nowhere'. The 30th anniversary tour will be happening in April 2022, happening a little later in the calendar than planned due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The band's catalogue albums will be reissued by Wichita in 2022, more news to follow as and when.
One of the leading lights of the early 90’s shoegaze scene, Ride reformed in 2014, releasing their first album in over 20 years in 2017. ‘Weather Diaries’ was produced by Erol Alkan and greeted by a raft of critical and commercial acclaim, reaching number 11 in the UK album charts. It also saw Ride reunited with Wichita Records’ Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with the band during their early years on Creation Records.
Ride's sixth studio album, ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’, came together in a matter of weeks at the end of 2018, and start of 2019, the sound of a band embracing their new found creativity and rejuvenated dynamic. As well as working with Erol Alkan for a second time on production, their sixth record also saw Ride reunite with sound engineer Alan Moulder, who is on mixing duties for his fourth Ride record, following ‘Weather Diaries’, ‘Going Blank Again’ and their 1990 debut album ‘Nowhere’ (an album whose iconic artwork is wonderfully echoed on the cover of ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’). 'This Is Not A Safe Place' charted at UK #7 on release in August 2019, the band's highest chart position in 25 years.
