RIDE - Tarantula

Shoegaze legends Ride reissue their early classic album Tarantula.

One of the leading lights of the early 90’s shoegaze scene, Ride reformed in 2014, releasing their first album in over 20 years in 2017. Following their ‘Nowhere’ 30th anniversary UK tour last year, shoegaze legends Ride release two more titles of their early classic albums ‘Tarantula’ and ‘Carnival of Light’ via Wichita Recordings. These follow last year’s reissues of ‘Nowhere’, ‘4EPs’, and ‘Going Blank Again’ from their days on Creation Records.

‘Tarantula’ the fourth and final album before their split is released with three bonus tracks. All the original audio has been reworked and refined. 

⚠ Updates
