Below is an email that was sent to all subscribers of the maling list following the launch of the new RIDE website to promote the OX4 Box Set. "Well you lot have been busy. There are loads of you now on the re-vamped mailing list and here's a little bit of news to keep you posted of what's going on. The reviews of the Best Of are starting to roll in. So far a 4/5 in Uncut and the same in Rocksound. And even a 5/5 in Record Buyer Magazine. The re-mastered etc. catalogue is now out in the shops in the UK (and I trust available on all reputable web retailers) and the Best Of and Box Set will hit the racks on Monday week (24/09). We're still working on a release outside of the UK but realistically this won't be until the New Year at the earliest. There are some articles coming up in The Guardian and the Sunday Times and also a piece soon in MOJO magazine. There's also going to be an interview up on NME.com imminently and both Mark and Steve have promised to finish their Q&A for the rideox4 website very very soon. The various club nights around the UK that are featuring the Best Of on special Ride nights are all listed on the website and we're hoping to run a competition soon on the site so that you can win free tickets to these events. Steve Lamacq has got an interview with Andy and Mark on his Radio 1 show next Monday and they'll also be loads of other radio and press bits and bobs around the release (maybe even a re-run on Top Of The Pops 2 on the telly). There's a feature on Ride on the www.creation-records.com site with exclusive interviews with the various ex-members and do always keep an eye on the Ticket To Ride Online site too - www.mareasub.it/ride. Please keep posting stuff on the guest book, as you will see Loz has posted there himself and all the band will try and answer any questions up there whenever they can. Must go."
