I was lucky enough to catch Ride's 2014 shows at Coachella 2 and the Fox Theater in Pomona, Calif. I'm excited about the new material. Hope they add some West Coast dates to the tour. Read on for the latest...

Following the release of two new songs, British band Ride have announced that in July they will be playing North American shows. The band will head to Toronto, Boston, New York, Philly, and DC for a slew of headline performances, with tickets available now. Ride shared "Charm Assault," followed by "Home Is A Feeling," the first new music that the group had released in 20 years.

Ride's upcoming album, scheduled for release this summer via Wichita Recordings, sees the band reunited with label co-founders Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who they worked with during the band's early years on Creation Records. It also brings the band back together with mixer Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers) who mixed their seminal 1990 album Nowhere and produced its follow up Going Blank Again.

After a lengthy hiatus, Ride reformed in 2014. Comprised of Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence Colbert, and Steve Queralt, the band sold out headline tours around the world to a plethora of critical acclaim, as well as show stopping turns at festivals including Coachella, Primavera and Field Day. Hear "Home Is A Feeling", "Charm Assault." See below for tickets and details on the band's upcoming shows, and stay tuned for more from Ride soon.
