English shoegaze band Ride is apparently gearing up for a reunion in 2015. Just this morning the bands label, Creation Records, posted a photograph of a poster with their name on it and the caption “Ride Reunion 2015 photo from Primavera this morning,” and a #RideReunion hashtag. This would be the first time in over a decade that the band will have played a show.
Ride was formed in 1988 and disbanded in 1996 before reuniting once in 2001. Band members Andy Bell, Laurence Colbert, and Mark Gardner are the core behind the band, but it was Bell who may have been the final straw that allowed the band to even seriously consider reuniting. Bell was originally in Liam Gallaghers now disbanded band, Beady Eye.
Check out the picture of the Ride poster below for Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Spain (first The Strokes and now this…) and the bands newly announced tour.
