This show and U.S. summer "Rad, White & Blue" tour is in advance of two new R. Ring 7" vinyl split-singles.  The first is with the Detroit-based post-punk band Protomartyr (out now on vinyl via Hardly Art) entitled A Half Of Seven, and features R. Ring's "Loud Underneath" (available now digitally here) and Protomartyr's "Blues Festival" also featuring Kelley Deal on vocals (stream here). R. Ring's second 7" split-single is with Kentucky-based garage rockers Quailbones and will feature the two respective songs "Singing Tower" & "A Tip to Trick the Tide." This single will be released this July in 7" vinyl & digital formats via Sofaburn Records.

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 released this July in 7" vinyl & digital formats via Sofaburn Records. To pre-order the vinyl, go to: www.sofaburn.com

In addition, R. Ring also have a new 7" split-single titled "A Half Of Seven" with Detroit-based post-punk band Protomartyr out now on vinyl through Hardly Art and is available here. R. Ring's song from it "Loud Underneath" is available as a digital download here, and Protomartyr's track "Blues Festival" is available digitally here.
