They'll perform a song as part of a new TV series...

RIDE are to reform to appear on a forthcoming CHANNEL 4 television series.

A spokesperson for the programme, ‘Pioneers’, told NME.COM that the original Ride line-up, which features current Oasis bassist Andy Bell, will perform one of their “classic songs” in the forthcoming series.

Each episode of ‘Pioneers’ lasts 15 minutes, and profiles seminal bands or moments in music. The broadcasts are likely to start at 12.45am on December 12, according to a spokesperson for Channel 4, and the show presented by Ride is to be about the influence of Sonic Youth.

Ride recently released a greatest hits retrospective, titled ‘OX4: The Best Of Ride’. The initial pressing of the three-CD box set has sold out, but more are expected to be released to the shops shortly.
