British shoegazing icons Ride reformed in 2014 and have been touring. They announced back in December that they were working on a new album and last week they shared its first two singles (and their first new songs in 21 years), the straight up rocker "Charm Assault" and the dreamier "Home Is a Feeling." The new album is due out this summer and now the band has announced some corresponding North American tour dates to go down this July. Check them out below, followed again by "Charm Assault" and "Home Is a Feeling."

Ride haven't released a new studio album since 1996's Tarantula, which was put out after the band split up and was poorly received. The new album is scheduled for release this summer on Wichita and Erol Alkan (Klaxons, Mystery Jets, Beyond the Wizards Sleeve) is producing it. The quartet's original run lasted from 1988 to 1996 and included four studio albums (Nowhere, Going Blank Again, Carnival of Light, and Tarantula). In 2015 they also released Nowhere25, a 25th anniversary reissue of their 1990-released debut album Nowhere. A few years ago we interviewed Ride's Mark Gardener and Andy Bell about Nowhere and you can read that article here. And then in 2015 in another interview we did with Gardener he went through Nowhere track-by-track and you can read that here.
