R.RING (FEATURING THE BREEDERS’ KELLEY DEAL & AMPLINE’S MIKE MONTGOMERY) TO RELEASE THEIR DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM IGNITE THE REST APRIL 28TH VIA SOFABURN RECORDS!
R.Ring is Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery. It is guitars, voices and keys. The music is sparse, abrasive, chaotic and lulling… often within the same song. It is a celebration of / departure from their work in their other bands (Kelley with The Breeders and Mike with Ampline).
On Ignite the Rest, R.Ring’s forthcoming debut full length, Kelley and Mike have enlisted the help of a few friends to flesh out some of the material. The bits of drumming that appear are courtesy of Laura King (Mac MaCaughan and the Non-Believers, Fleshwounds), Leo DeLuca (Southeast Engine) and professional skateboarder Kristian Svitak. The compelling cello arrangements are by Lori Goldston (Earth / Nirvana).
The tracks run the gamut from plaintive meanderings to noise pieces to mid-tempo swoons to raucous barn-burners. R.Ring will be touring throughout 2017 in support of the release.
R.Ring’s Ignite The Rest will be available April 28th on limited vinyl, CD, digital and streaming formats via SofaBurn Records.

R. RING’S 7″ VINYL SPLIT-SINGLE W/ KENTUCKY GARAGE-ROCKERS QUAILBONES OUT THIS JULY 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 available this July in 7″ vinyl & digital formats via Sofaburn Records.
In addition, R. Ring will also be putting out a second 7″ split-single this summer with another great act. Details to be announced soon.
R. Ring will be on tour all spring and will be joined by drummer Jose Medeles (The Breeders / 1939 Ensemble ) for a week of dates in the Pacific Northwest, before drummer/professional skater Kristian Svitak (The Heartaches / Swami Records) joins them for their leg back home from L.A.
R. Ring’s friend Ali Calis at Able Projects in Cincinnati did the great poster art (above) for them depicting the “SS R.RING” atop a frothy sea, charging head-on into a giant, angry octopuss. R. Ring titled it, ”Peril” and Ali of course titled it, “Pussy.” So… they present to you the following confirmed dates for their ‘Pussy-Peril’ Tour!
