Ash announce new album ‘Islands’, unveil first single ‘Buzzkill’
Veteran British rockers Ash have announced they will release a brand new album Islands on 18 May.
Islands is the band’s seventh album and marks their first new material since 2015’s Kablammo! It also sees the alt-rock stalwarts return to record label Infectious Music.
To celebrate the announcement the band have offered fans a taste of the new record in the shape of lead single ‘Buzzkill’.
Speaking about ‘Buzzkill’ and its origins, Ash frontman Tim Wheeler explains:
“The day I wrote ‘Buzzkill’, it took me a while to stop laughing cos it’s so fun, dumb and full of unnecessary swearing.”
“We used to know a band called Buzzkill in Belfast in the 90s and I think their name has been in my mind for all that time wanting to get into a song.”
Islands was mostly produced by Wheeler himself and if the punk-influenced ‘Buzzkill’ is anything to go by, it is sure to be a wild ride.
Islands track listing:
Confessions In The Pool
All That I Have Left
Don’t Need Your Love
Did Your Love Burn Out?
It’s A Trap
Is It True?
