To coincide with their upcoming Nowhere 30th anniversary UK tour, Ride have announced vinyl reissues of their early EPs and albums.

Later this month Ride will head out on their UK tour to celebrate 30 years of their 1990 debut album Nowhere, and today (14 April) the band has confirmed that their earliest projects and albums are set to return to vinyl later this year.

Their first four EPs - Ride, Play, Fall, and Today Forever - will be packaged together as 4 EPs, marking the first time they've been put onto one record. The 4 EPs reissue will also be accompanied by a 16-page booklet with archive photos and an essay by Sonic Cathedral’s Nathaniel Cramp.

Ride's 1990 debut album Nowhere and their 1992 album Going Blank Again will also coming to vinyl in November.

Andy Bell says of the reissues and Nowhere 30th anniversary tour, "We were really looking forward to getting out and touring the 30th anniversary of Nowhere back in 2020. Then the pandemic hit and delayed our plans, but here we are in 2022 and we are still buzzing about getting out on the road, if anything, more so than before."

"We feel that Nowhere is a debut album worth celebrating, and as well as the tour, we've decided to start pressing new editions of the vinyl from the original Ride era," Bell continues. "The first batch not only includes Nowhere, but also Going Blank Again, and an album we’ve created out of the first 4 EPs. This new album has given us a chance to create some new (but old school) Ride artwork, in conjunction with the team at Wichita, which we are pretty pleased with. We have also created a live film with Moment House of us performing Nowhere it its entirety. It's filmed in as close a location as we could get to the site of the original recording session at Blackwing studios."

The accompanying film mentioned by Bell will premiere on 28 October. Tickets are available from

The first batch of Ride's reissues will arrive on 4 November via Wichita Recordings, and are available to pre-order now.
