  • Ride confirm reunion tour, announce dates including Terminal 5, Primavera & more!

    Well that didn't take long. Earlier today, a Ride reunion was teased and now it's officially been announced that the legendary shoegazers will bless us with their first shows since their 1996 breakup in 2015! As speculated, they will in fact play Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival (with The Strokes and more TBA) and they've also announced two North American dates so far, one of which is at NYC's Terminal 5 on June 4 (same place fellow reunited shoegazers Slowdive just played). Tickets will be on sale soon.

    Check out the full list of reunion dates (via Pitchfork) and listen to Ride's classic 1990 debut Nowhere...

  • giant Ride banner appears in Barcelona -- will they reunite and play Primavera Sound in 2015?

    by Bill Pearis

    When news broke that Beady Eye had called it quits (yes, it was sad), I pondered aloud if this closing door could be the opening of another leading to a Ride reunion. (Ride's Andy Bell played guitar for Beady Eye and bass for Oasis before that.) Still no official word, but Dangerous Minds points out that evidence to that possibility just appeared plastered across a building in Barcelona, Spain as you can see above. That photo was posted on Creation Records (the band's old UK label) facebook this morning. Barcelona, of course, is the home of the Primavera Sound festival where Ride's Creation Records labelmates and fellow '90s shoegazers Slowdive began their second act this year.

  • Arp released new EP, playing Mexican Summer celebration in Brooklyn (which Lansing-Dreiden dropped off of)

    Arp (aka NYC artist/musician Alexis Georgopoulos) just released the Pulsars e Quasars EP via Mexican Summer. A mix of cosmic pop and even spacier instrumentals, the new EP falls somewhere between Slowdive and Broadcast on the shoegaze spectrum. You can check out a video for the EP's title track, plus a Rdio stream of the whole record, below.

    Folks in NYC can catch Arp at Glasslands on October 15 as part of the two-night Mexican Summer celebration that also features La Hell Gang and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. That show was originally to be headlined by Lansing-Dreiden but they have since dropped off the bill (bummer). Tickets are still available. It's Arp's only scheduled live show at the moment.
