From My Bloody Valentine in 2009 to Blur and the Stone Roses in 2013, Coachella is often the first (and sometimes only) North American landing spot for reunited U.K. alt-rock bands. This year, that honor goes to recently reformed shoegaze pioneers Ride. The Nowhere band initially broke up in 1996, but following the dissolution of Oasis and subsequently Beady Eye, guitarist Andy Bell was finally able to bury the hatchet with fellow Ride founder Mark Gardner. Coachella was supposed to be Ride's first U.S. show since 1992, but they've since added an April 8th gig at Los Angeles' the Roxy because, as the band wrote on Facebook, "You didn't really think the first time we would be walking on stage to play together in the U.S. would be in front of thousands of people at Coachella, did you?"
