The trio released their latest album Kablammo! late May from which new single Machinery is taken, set for release on October 9th. Described by Tim as “probably the most indie pop tune on the record” it’s “essentially a song about someone in modern times trying to find a real connection” he explains. “It was one of the final ones we worked on” says Mark “it’s just a beautiful melody.”
Kablammo, released to a fanfare of positive reviews, marks eight years since the release of Ash’s last studio album. The album saw the band capture the live essence of Ash as a great rock band, and has been widely lauded as their best since their number 1 “Free All Angels” album – “Stacked with punchy, anthemic indie rockers” The Times **** and ‘classic Ash – wistful, layered and full of giddy tunes” Kerrang ****

In addition to their December tour Ash will play Reading & Leeds festival making their 9th appearance at the event.  AUG 28-30 – Reading and Leeds Festival
