R. Ring w/ Protomartyr, Tweens, Smut
Northside Tavern, 4163 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati, OH
Tue. April 21, 2015
R. Ring is Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery. It is voices, guitars and keys. It is sparse, chaotic, abrasive and lulling, often within the same song. It is new. It is, at the very least, a stark departure from the music they make in their other bands (Kelley with The Breeders and Mike with Ampline).
Kelley lives in Dayton, Ohio. Mike lives in Dayton, Kentucky.
R. Ring’s 7″ split-single with Kentucky-based garage rockers Quailbones will feature the two respective songs “Singing Tower” & “A Tip to Trick the Tide” and will be available this July in 7″ vinyl & digital formats via Sofaburn Records.
In addition, R. Ring will also be putting out a second 7″ split-single this summer with another great act. Details to be announced soon.
R. Ring will be on tour all spring and will be joined by drummer Jose Medeles (The Breeders /1939 Ensemble) for a week of dates in the Pacific Northwest, before drummer/professional skater Kristian Svitak (The Heartaches / Swami Records) joins them for their leg back home from L.A.
R. Ring’s friend Ali Calis at Able Projects in Cincinnati did the great poster art (above) for them depicting the “SS R.RING” atop a frothy sea, charging head-on into a giant, angry octopuss. R. Ring titled it, ”Peril” and Ali of course titled it, “Pu*sy.” So… they present to you the following confirmed dates for their ‘Pu*sy-Peril’ Tour!
