Today is a special day! The debut 7″ by R. Ring (The Breeders’ Kelley Deal & Ampline’s Mike Montgomery) is officially released today – 10/30/2012. “Fallout & Fire” b/w “SEE” is an extremely special set of songs and the first Kelley Deal project in a very long while.
R. Ring, the new band of The Breeders’ Kelley Deal & Ampline’s Mike Montgomery, have seen some wonderful press. People are so excited to see Kelley back in action and it brings joy to our hearts. Oh, Deal is creating, creating, creating. The world needs it now more than ever. Mike Montgomery is the perfect musical partner for her. R. Ring slays.
My Stars! Pitchfork gave R. Ring some love today! This is the new band of The Breeders’ Kelley Deal & Ampline’s Mike Montgomery and it is gooooood (that voice)! Head here to hear the A-side (Orange-side) of the band’s debut “Fallout & Fire” b/w “See” 7″ — out October 30 on Misra. Thanks to Jenn Pelly and all at Pitchfork! R. Ring pre-order up very soon.
R. Ring are posed to hit the road again here soon (dates below). The four-day run kicks off in Kelley Deal’s hometown of Dayton, OH (Mike Montgomery will make the short drive from Dayton, KY to join).
In addition, R.R have made 100 copies of the DEVO song “Mr.DNA” that they covered with professional skateboarder Kristian Svitak on limited, hand-cut, griptape-covered blocks of wood, each custom stenciled by Dayton writer KELP! The discs contain an audio track of the song plus a video clip of the song re-edited by Adam Kure to Kristian’s original 88footwear skate part. They’ll be available starting August 29 at the aforementioned Southpark Tavern show in Dayton, OH (Kristian will be joining R. Ring on drums for this string of shows!). The track will still be available digitally through Mike’s Ampline-associated Phratry Records as well.
We’ll have a proper announcement regarding the release date of R. Ring’s debut release with Misra here very soon. We’ve got production underway and are making this thing sound and look great!
