Ride - Nowhere (Limited Transparent Curacao Coloured Vinyl)Ride announce details of the reissues of their early classic EPs and albums, embark on a 'Nowhere' 30th anniversary tour and release a live film.
Ahead of their ‘Nowhere’ 30th anniversary UK tour starting 20th April, shoegaze legends Ride have announced the details of the ‘Nowhere’ reissue, on a stunning blue vinyl, with a gatefold sleeve and embossed artwork. All the original audio has been reworked and refined. Ride’s co-frontman, guitarist and songwriter Andy Bell had the following to say about the imminent Nowhere 30 tour and reissues:
"We were really looking forward to getting out and touring the 30th anniversary of 'Nowhere' back in 2020. Then the pandemic hit and delayed our plans, but here we are in 2022 and we are still buzzing about getting out on the road, if anything, more so than before. We feel that ‘Nowhere’ is a debut album worth celebrating and as well as the tour we also have decided to start pressing new editions of the vinyl from the original Ride era, the first batch of which not only includes 'Nowhere' but also' Going Blank Again' and an album we’ve created out of the first 4 EPs. This new album has given us a chance to create some new (but old school) Ride artwork, in conjunction with the team at Wichita, which we are pretty pleased with. To get this Nowhere themed period up and running, we have also created a live film of us performing the entire album, in as close a location as we could to the site of the original recording session at Blackwing studios.“
