Ride deny reformation rumours

Management tell NME.COM reunion reports are wrong

Ride have denied reports they are about to reform.

Reports appeared in the press today (May 11) that the shoegazing stalwarts would reunite for Canadian festival NXNE, plus stage UK dates and release a DVD.

However NME.COM has spoken to the group’s management who denied Ride are about to reform, saying there was no truth in the stories.

“This point in time would be the least likely for this kind of thing to happen – they’re all very busy at the moment with individual commitments and very full schedules,” explained the group’s manager Dave Newton. “Having said that, if the organisers of NXNW want to get in touch with an offer, I’d have to put it to the boys.”

Ride formed in Oxford in 1988 and were signed to Creation, before splitting in 1996.

Bandmember Andy Bell now plays bass in Oasis, Mark Gardener solo material is available from Soniccathedral.co.uk, while drummer Loz Collbert is currently playing drums with The Jesus And Mary Chain.
