RIDE Shoegaze revival rides again

After a number of seminal shoegaze acts having visited Perth in the last two years, Ride will be the latest act to grace our stages, with a show at The Astor Theatre on Saturday, August 31. This will be their first headline tour in over 25 years.

Forming in Oxford, England in 1988, Ride set the blueprint for the shoegaze scene with the release of their landmark debut album Nowhere. Fast forward to 2019, the band have returned with their highly anticipated sixth studio album This Is Not A Safe Place, out August 16.

The album’s first single Future Love features their trademark kaleidoscopic wall of sound and is what singer and lead guitarist Andy Bell describes as “a song about the beginning of a relationship when everything feels possible.” Ride is comprised of Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Loz Colbert, and Steve Queralt.

This Is Not A Safe Place out August 16. Ride play The Astor Theatre on Saturday, August 31. Tickets on sale now.
