To celebrate the 20th anniversary of UK band Ride's seminal masterpiece Going Blank Again, frontman Mark Gardener will perform three New Zealand solo shows in August.

Fans can look forward to hearing classic Ride songs like Vapour Trail, Leave Them All Behind, and Twisterella; plus material from Gardener’s solo and collaborative projects.

Tickets are on-sale from UnderTheRadar.co.nz and their outlets at Real Groovy and Slow Boat.

In support at Wunderbar is Kurt Shanks playing songs from his debut album Blood Line Heart, and Lindon Puffin with material from Hope Holiday and more.

Mark Gardener’s latest tour includes the United States, Australia and New Zealand (for the first time), and reflects a renewed worldwide interest in all things Ride. The media-appointed darlings of “shoe-gaze” were lauded in the 2011 award winning Upside Down documentary, alongside their Creation Records label mates Oasis, Jesus and the Mary Chain, Primal Scream and Teenage Fanclub.

Late last year Ride’s Nowhere and Going Blank Again albums received the deluxe re-release treatment, each with bonus tracks.

Ride formed in 1988 in Oxford, England and made a significant impact, with their debut album Nowhere (1990) rated by Pitchfork as one of the Top 100 albums of the 1990s. Their second album Going Blank Again (1992) was an even bigger critical and commercial success, reaching the Top 5 in the UK charts.

Since parting ways with Ride in 1996, Gardener has released material as part of The Animal House, an acclaimed solo album These Beautiful Ghosts (2005), an EP with Goldrush and the acoustic live album Live @ the Knitting Factory, New York City.
