Ride played its first full-band reunion show last night — watch

The 17-song set was the first the band had played together since 2001


    The summer of Ride kicked off early last night when the reformed shoegaze act played its first full-band concert since announcing their reunion tour last November. Fittingly, the show took place in the band’s hometown of Oxford, England at the O2 Academy. The four-piece played a set full of classics like “Seagull” and “Vapour Trail”, as well as the live debut of “Black Nite Crash” from the 1996 post-breakup record Tarantula.

    The set makes a great preview for the band’s upcoming slot at Coachella, where they’ll play this and next weekend. Ride will also issue a vinyl reprint of its career-spanning compilation album OX4 on Record Store Day (April 18th).

    Below, watch fan footage of “Seagull”, “OX4”, “Drive Blind”, and “Dreams Burn Down” from last night’s performance.
