Ash are today announcing their first new album together in more than five years
and sharing a new single alongside news of an upcoming UK / EU tour. Race The Night
the band’s eighth studio album
will be released on 15th September 2023 via one of their earliest label homes Fierce Panda. With 29 years
18 hit singles
seven studio albums and an unfathomable number of tour dates since their appearance on the label’s 1994 Crazed And Confused compilation
Race The Night is both a party with old friends and a message to leap into the present with arms wide open.
Fitting then that the lead single should be the album’s title-track
Wheeler comments: “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.”
Continuing about the video he says: “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…”
UK pre-orders for new album Race The Night are live now. Race The Night is available across gatefold vinyl
