R. Ring (Kelley Deal of The Breeders and Ampline's Mike Montgomery) have released a few singles since forming in 2012, and this April they'll release their debut album. Ignite The Rest features 12 new songs that range from "plaintive meanderings to noise pieces to mid-tempo swoons to raucous barn-burners" and includes guest musicians Laura King, Leo DeLuca, Lori Goldston, and professional skateboarder Kristian Svitak.

The album's first single "Cutter" was the first track the duo recorded together back in 2012, but it took five years for them to recreate the perfect sound and vibe. The single's animated video was created by Seattle artists Clyde Petersen and Chris Looney, and according to R.Ring's Mike Montgomery, it "captures perfectly those feelings of shame, isolation and aggressive carelessness that the lyrics evoke." The video for "Cutter" can be viewed here.

Ignite The Rest arrives April 28th on vinyl, CD, and as a digital download. Pre-order here.

R. Ring hit the road in support of the release in April with Split Single (aka Jason Narducy) serving as support. The tour itinerary is posted below:
