Ride have announced dates for their This Is Not A Safe Place Album Tour. Starting in Norwich on Friday 29th November, the tour takes in huge shows across the UK, including Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow before reaching London’s Barbican on Monday 9th December.

The tour announcement and video for their current single, Future Love follows the release of their eagerly anticipated sixth studio album This Is Not A Safe Place. The album sees Ride reunite with revered DJ, producer and re-mixer Erol Alkan, who was on production duties for 2017’s critically acclaimed Weather Diaries. Rekindling that creative partnership has once again seen Ride push their sound forward, as hypnotic rhythms and washes of lush guitars come together with leftfield electronic influences. The combination creates a sound rich in their trademark shoegaze atmosphere, whilst simultaneously sounding fresh and creatively ambitious.

One of the leading lights of the early 90’s shoegaze scene, Ride reformed in 2014, releasing their first album in over 20 years in 2017. Weather Diaries was greeted by a raft of critical and commercial acclaim, reaching number eleven in the UK album charts.

Ride are Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence Colbert, and Steve Queralt.
