Sydney based three-piece The Ride Ons are now a four piece with the arrival of new member Mick King Jr. releasing their debut LP through Reign Records.
Coinciding with the release of the band’s debut 15 track album – Delinquents With Hot Rods – through Reign Records, Mick King Jr. will join original members Murray Shepard, Ben Nightingale, and Matty Stokes.
The Ride Ons already showcase an extraordinary level of musical talent due, no doubt, to the exceptional performance history of the individuals involved.

With over 20 years of experience within the music industry, including playing in the bands Strange Brew, Next Stop Earth, Newcastle cult hard rock band Vaseline Machine Gun, later to become Hound, and rock and blues outfit The Blues Bombers, Mick King Jr. will add another dimension to the indomitable Ride Ons style.
