Sydney three-piece The Ride Ons have fast built themselves an underground fan base in the five years since they came together. Support slots with the likes of The Von Bondies and The Sleepy Jackson, as well as an Eastern state tour alongside The Screaming Jets, hints at the eclectic nature of the band’s style and set list, which draws diverse inspiration from AC/DC, Gram Parsons & the Beasts of Bourbon. The Ride Ons is classic Rock & Roll with touches of country & blues all infused with the indomitable Ride Ons style.
Their debut 6 - track E.P, The First Cut (456 Records/MGM Distr.) was recorded within just two months of the bands' inception, but showcased an extraordinary level of musical talent due, no doubt, to the exceptional performance history of the individuals involved. Collectively members have performed in The Clouds, Plutonium Biscuits, The Sleepy Jackson, The Screaming Tribesmen, The Monarchs, The Hitmen and Radio Birdman.
The follow-up EP Cheer Squad, released on their own label in 2007, displays the evolution in songwriting from The Ride Ons and hints at how good a full album from the band could be. They have even supplied three songs for the soundtrack of a documentary about 8 times Women’s surfing champion Layne Beachley.
And now Reign Records are proud to be releasing The Ride Ons debut LP Delinquents With Hot Rods. The title provides an insight to nature of the 15 track opus: the soundtrack to the best road movie never made.
