Downpatrick's finest indie rockers are supporting their upcoming 7th studio album Islands
Ash have announced UK tour dates for 2018, with tickets for the shows on sale at 9am on Mon 5 Mar. Presale tickets are available from 9am on Fri 2 Mar for those who buy the band's new album from the band's official store this week.
From Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, the band released their debut album 1977 in May 1996. Featuring the singles 'Goldfinger', 'Kung Fu', 'Oh Yeah' and the classic 'Girl From Mars', it received rave reviews – with the band still teenagers at the time.
They were joined by Charlotte Hatherley for their second album, 1998's Nu-Clear Sounds. Their third full-length, 2001's Free All Angels, topped the UK charts, and featuring 'Shining Light' and 'Burn Baby Burn', it has sold over 3 million copies worldwide.
The band are now gearing up to release their seventh studio album, Islands, and have released the incredibly catchy 'Buzzkill' as a teaser.
In support they'll play 7 shows across the UK, kicking off at Sheffield Leadmill on Tue 16 Oct and finishing up at O2 Forum Kentish Town on Wed 24 Oct.
