Taken from the Strangeways Radio Blog:

Ride front man Mark Gardener and Robin Guthrie from Cocteau Twins have announced that they will collaborate on a single called The Places We Go, with a release date planned for July 2012. We don’t have any further information on this collaboration, and are not yet sure if it will lead to a full length album. We will stay on top of this story and bring you updates and song samples as soon as they become available.

As reported by Slicing Up Eyeballs, Mark Gardener is on the road supporting the 20th anniversary of Going Blank Again. He has just announced a few more New Zealand dates to add to the end of the tour. Sadly, he is only making a few west coast stops in the US.

For those not fortunate enough to see him live, here is a live acoustic video of Mark Gardener performing the Ride classic, Dreams Burn Down.
