Ash announce new album and joint UK and European tour with The Subways
Titled ‘Race The Night’, the band’s latest LP marks the first album they have released together in more than five years. Ash have also released the LP’s title track.
“’Race the Night’ video is the product from the fevered mind of long-time friend and horror director Jed Shepherd. He’s taken a song about seizing the moment and had the band seized by a super fan who proceeds to force the band into doing her bidding. Enjoy the Misery,” shares vocalist and guitarist Tim Wheeler.
Wheeler explains that “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.”
‘Race The Night’ is set for release on September 15 via Fierce Panda. Visit here to pre-order the album.
Ash will be headed out on a tour through the UK and Europe in support of the album. The tour will be co-headlined by British rockers The Subways.

The band’s previous album was 2018’s ‘Island’. In a four-star review, NME shared: “‘Islands’ is as ferocious and catchy as ever. And while it’s undoubtedly a record of consolidation, a return to familiar home ground, it also gently scouts new territory.”
