Stephen Stills ' new blues-rock supergroup, The Rides , is ready to take its show on the road.  The band, which also features Kenny Wayne Shepherd and founding Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg , has announced dates for its first-ever tour .

The monthlong trek will see the group works its way across the U.S. during the late summer and early fall.  The outing gets under way with an August 28-29 stand at the famed New York City jazz club The Iridium, and is plotted out through a September 27 show at the Grand Sierra Resort & Casino in Reno, Nevada.  The tour also will include stops in Boston, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Houston and San Francisco.

Opening for The Rides throughout the trek will be blues-rock singer Beth Hart , who recently performed at Eric Clapton 's Crossroads Guitar Festival and with Jeff Beck at last year's Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Buddy Guy .

As previously reported, The Rides' debut album, Can't Get Enough , will be released on August 27.  The project was inspired by Stills' 1968 Super Session album with late Electric Flag guitarist Mike Bloomfield and Blood, Sweat & Tears keyboardist Al Kooper .  Among the tunes featured on the record are several original compositions and covers of Neil Young 's "Rockin' in the Free World," Iggy and the Stooges ' "Search and Destroy and Muddy Waters ' "Honey Bee."  There's also a new rendition of "Word Game," a Stills song that first appeared on his 1971 solo effort Stephen Stills 2 .

Meanwhile, The Rides recently released an official lyric video for one of the album's original tracks, "Don't Want Lies," that can be viewed online now .  The clip features footage of the band members at work in CRM Studios in Shreveport, Louisiana.
