Reunited shoegazers Ride have followed up the release of their first new music in more than two decades with plans to perform a “select run” of North American dates in July, a five-concert trek that sees the band playing Toronto, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
Tickets for those shows go on sale at 10 a.m. local time Friday.
Ride — Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence “Loz” Colbert and Steve Queralt — announced plans to reunite in late 2014, then toured the U.S. and Europe in 2015. Late last year, the band announced it would record a follow-up to 1996’s Tarantula and release it this coming summer.
Ride’s North American tour dates:
July 17: Masssey Hall, Toronto, ON
July 19: Royale, Boston, MA
July 20: Terminal 5, New York, NY
July 22: TLA, Philadelphia, PA
July 23: Sixth & I, Washington, D.C.
