Posted at 1:22 pm

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!

Kelley Deal of R. Ring Hosts Madison Knitting Workshop Tomorrow (7/7) /// Milwaukee R. Ring Date Changed to 7/10 (from 7/9)  

Posted at 3:13 pm

Dane 101 recently did a wonderful piece on the knitting workshop R. Ring’s Kelley Deal is doing in Madison, WI. The event is tomorrow, July 7, before their show at Memorial Union Terrace. Also, please note: R. Ring’s July 9 Milwaukee date has been changed to July 10. The band is currently on tour all over the midwest. Head here to see where.

Via Dane 101 (do read the whole piece via the link above):

The Events in a Nutshell:

Like knitting? Like rock and roll? Saturday, July 7 will be one heck of a day for you. Kelley Deal of The Breeders talks amigurumi (cute little knitted animals) at Sow’s Ear in Verona from 3 to 5pm. Her new band R Ring (with Mike Montgomery also of Ampline) plays the Memorial Union Terrace later that night around 9:30 p.m.

The Backstory:

A few years ago Kelley Deal decided to start saying “yes” more often. One wonders what she had been saying “no” to prior to that. One of the things that I love about the woman is that she has always seemed willing to try anything, whether it be taking over lead guitar duties from Tanya Donelly in The Breeders back in the early 1990s (even though she didn’t know how to play guitar yet), or filling in for Carrie Bradshaw on fiddle years later (again, without knowing how to play prior to trying it), playing bass in a bizarre super-group (The Last Hard Men), writing and recording her own songs with The Kelley Deal 6000, putting together a roller derby music video for The Breeders, performing The Long Count (put on by The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner), or singing and playing bass on a Devo cover for a skateboarding video for pro skater Kristian Svitak. Or even writing and publishing a book on knitting. Yes knitting, her constant companion in stolen moments for many years. So for a woman who didn’t think she was saying “yes” enough, Kelley Deal was getting an awful lot done.
