Mailing List – News update – April 2015

Below is an email sent out to all subscribers of the band's mailing list in April 2015. Tomorrow Never Knows - April 2015 Last time we played there, in May 1990, it was the humble Co-Op Hall. It's been through a number of name changes since - Oxford Venue, Zodiac, Carling Academy - as well as a lot of structural changes resulting in two live music rooms worthy of gracing any city in the country. As the Co-Op Hall it played an important part in developing the opportunities available to local Oxford bands and came along just at the right time for us. We'd sold out the 200 capacity Jericho Tavern for the first time in June 1989 and with the Co-Op Hall opening up as a 500 capacity music venue just 9 months beforehand, it meant that there was now another opportunity for local bands to aspire to. So it seemed only right for our first show in 20 years to be taking place in the room that had been so key to us. We'll be back there this Sunday (April 5th), just ahead of our tour dates in California which take in two Coachella Festival appearances as well as shows in San Francisco, Pomona, San Diego (dates below) and.... ...we are happy to say, a return to The Roxy in LA on Wednesday April 8th. Well you didn't really think that the first time we would be walking on stage to play together in the US would be in front of thousands of people at Coachella, did you? The Roxy too has a special place in our past as we played two shows there in 1991 on the co-headline tour we did of North America with Lush. Moreover, one of the shows was recorded and released a few years back by Rhino/Warners as part of a special 2xCD 20th Anniversary Edition of Nowhere. They say good things come in threes... ..and so here are the details of the third club show we'll be play in the coming months. After the New York show at Terminal 5 in June sold out so quickly, we decided we would try and squeeze another show into our schedule in the New York area. Et voila. We have booked the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on Monday June 1st. By the way, the Oxford show is an early one as we have a plane to catch the following morning! We reckon we'll be on stage just after 8pm and there will be no support act on that show. In LA we have Eagulls supporting and in Brooklyn we have Penguinsrising (there's almost as theme developing here). All shows have a limit of two tickets per person. Hurry, hurry, hurry - these shows will sell fast. The Oxford show is on sale now LA goes on sale at 3pm (PST) today Brooklyn has a pre-sale that is live at Noon (EST) today, with the remainder on sale at Noon (EST) on Friday (3rd) If you don't manage to get tickets for the LA show then each of the other Californian shows this month have some tickets still available: Monday 13th: The Warfield, San Francisco - tickets Tuesday 14th: Fox Theater, Pomona - tickets Thursday 16th: Humphreys Concerts By the Bay, San Diego - tickets And if all else fails, you can catch us live on air on for a Morning Becomes Eclectic session on KCRW on the morning of the LA Roxy show (April 8th). Fancy a little taster from rehearsals? Here's (some of) Seagull. signing off with a little bit of trivia for you... The Play EP was released 25 years ago tomorrow (April 2nd) and later that week entered the charts at number 32, becoming our first Top 40 hit.

Mailing List – News update – March 2015

Below is an email sent out to all subscribers of the band's mailing list in March 2015. Tomorrow Never Knows - March 2015 Rehearsing, rehearsing, rehearsing... gigs, gigs, gigs... Things are hotting up here in the Ride base-camp as the shows draw ever nearer. In fact it feels like California is racing towards us now as the weeks and days tick by. Good job then that we’ve been busily rehearsing for the last month or so, knocking everything into shape before we make our final preparations over the next 2 weeks. This is when the team finally comes together and the lights literally get switched on. We’ll be surrounded by roadies again!! For some of us it’s also been a busy month buying, borrowing and trading new equipment (toys), pictures of which some of you will have seen on Twitter. What you (hopefully) won’t have seen on Twitter though is the set-list. Yep, we know which songs we’re going to play. Mainly covers of early Floyd and Neil Young songs with a bit of 70s Italian film music thrown in for good measure. You won’t be disappointed. So, we are almost ready and the excitement is slowly turning into a nervous, hysterical anxiety. This is really going to happen!! By the way, if you ever find yourselves in Shepherds Bush then do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a Mr Falafel. We officially recommend either the 10 Supreme+ or 11 with extra Halloumi cheese. Stick to the medium size is again our official advice on this. In addition to the Primavera Barcelona (29th May) and Field Day (7th June) events we’ve been invited to play a number of other festivals over the summer which include the following :- Coachella California, US - 10th & 17th April Shaky Knees Atlanta, Georgia, US - 10th May Primavera Porto, Portugal - 6th June Best Kept Secret Holland - 19th-21st June Melt! Germany - 17th-19th July Fuji Rock Japan - 24th-26th July OFF Poland - 7th-9th August Øya Norway - 11th-15th August Electric Picnic Ireland - 4th-6th September Details of tickets can be found on www.RideMusic.net We hope to see some of you there. So, our first show has come and gone already with Andy and Mark performing at the 100 Club in London. The duo played a full acoustic set in aid of the Warchild charity who set up a series of gigs during the week leading up to the Brits raising over £500,000. This is something we were immensely proud to be part of and we hope to continue our relationship with the charity going forward. Back to the US. We are delighted to share the news that ASH will be supporting us at Terminal 5 in New York. This comes 21 years after we played together in Belfast. We are also excited to confirm that Eagulls will be joining us for all the Californian shows (apart from San Diego) this April. Monday 13th: The Warfield, San Francisco - tickets Tuesday 14th: Fox Theater, Pomona - tickets Thursday 16th: Humphreys Concerts By the Bay, San Diego - tickets While we’re in LA we’ll be playing a live Morning Becomes Eclectic session on KCRW on April 8th. No chance of sitting by the pool in the sun then, seems it’s all work!!
