Tour starts in Leeds on October 11

Ride have confirmed they will play their debut album, Nowhere, in its entirety on their forthcoming UK tour.

The band have enjoyed a hugely successful run of shows since reuniting at the start of this year – and this will this will be the only chance to see the Oxford four-piece playing Nowhere in its entirety.

“I’m so excited about playing Nowhere in full,” says guitarist Andy Bell. “We are going with the 11 track CD track listing, not just the 8 tracks from the original vinyl. So the set will end with the title track on every gig of the UK tour, which is going to sound epic.

“I didn’t realise how few times we’d actually played most of the songs. And of course we have never played the album in its original track order before.

“We have been throwing in versions of some of the songs at our US dates but the majority of the preparation for these shows was done during rehearsals in London in-between our festival shows this summer. I’m especially buzzing about how ‘Kaleidoscope’ is sounding. It’s going to be amazing playing it for the first time.

“All in all, it’s a big deal to us, and we haven’t been certain we could pull it off until now. We as a band are so proud of the album and we are aware that fans have been campaigning for us to perform it in full on this tour but it’s only now that we are sure we can do the album justice.”

Ride will release Nowhere25 on November 6: a CD+DVD release featuring the expanded 15-track album alongside the live recording of their concert at London’s Town & Country Club in March 1991 that until recently had been lost in the archives. A heavyweight blue marble vinyl version will also be available.
