Boston-based quartet RIBS are setting off on tour this week, taking their Failure-meets-My Bloody Valentine dreamscape down the East Coast for the first time. The tour currently has 10 scheduled stops, starting on May 5th in Boston and ending on May 14th in Athens, GA.
RIBS has built a reputation across New England for the creativity and clockwork of their light-flooded live shows, making them a go-to choice for local support on national tours including Helmet and Circa Survive.
Reviews described their latest release, the double A-side Locrian Singles as a “double-knockout” – comprised of two “futuristic, star-screaming” singles – showing an evolution from the sneaking post-gaze of the band’s debut EP, British Brains, released last June. RIBS rose to prominence after British Brains became one of Reddit’s top music posts of all time.

05.05 – Boston, MA – Great Scott
05.06 – Danbury, CT – Heirloom Arts Theatre
05.07 – Albany, NY – Hudson River Coffee House
