UK shoegaze pioneers RIDE return to NZ
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 NZ is beloved indie/psych rock group MERCURY REV. Led by Jonathan Donahue and Sean ‘Grasshopper’ MackowiakMERCURY 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
