After confirming their first new album in over five years, Ash have released a brand new single and confirmed dates for their 2023 UK & EU Tour.
Race The Night will be the Northern Irish band’s eighth studio album, set for release on 15th September 2023 via Fierce Panda.
The lead single is the album’s title-track, with lead vocalist, Tim Wheeler commenting: “Race the Night is the sound of the band reveling in the sheer joy of being a band after being separated by time and distance through the insanity of the early 2020s.
“Lyrically it’s all about seizing the crossroads moments in life with both hands. Take every chance as if it could be your last.”
Ash will take Race The Night on a co-headline tour later this year alongside The Subways. Dates include Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, and Newcastle, with the full list of UK & Ireland dates listed below.
You can pre-order the album from the ASH Store before 11.59pm BST on Sunday 18th June to receive a unique code for exclusive early access to purchase tickets for any of the shows in the UK. General sale is 21st June at 10am.
