Tarantula: Vinyl LPWEBB577LP
Label: Wichita Records
Release Date: 4th August
The final album of Phase One of Ride, by this time they're a band of so many different influences, whether it's garage rock, sunshining baggy rock n roll soul, jangle pop or just straight up rock. Tarantula clearly represents a band with too many ideas to be contained in one unit.
*Despite the sticker on the product advertising 'orange vinyl', this record is a Black Vinyl LP
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.

All the original audio has been reworked and refined, the reissues will also be available on CD from the 4th of August.
