Don't miss UK shoegaze pioneers RIDE with special guests MERCURY REV at Forum Melbourne this 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 that inspired a wave of shoegaze bands to follow in years to come.

Armed with their stellar seventh studio album, INTERPLAY, this is RIDE’S third album since reforming in 2014, having now been together longer in their current second phase than their original iteration as 90’s shoegaze pioneers. Their music has remained nothing short of exciting - on this album chaotic guitars meet excellently produced synths and melodies, as threads of psychedelic folk and electronic music weave together with ease.

Joining RIDE on this epic return to Australia/NZ is beloved indie/psych rock group MERCURY REV
