Ash have announced a new album, as well as a co-headline UK and European tour with The Subways later this year.

'Race The Night', the follow-up to 2018's 'Islands', will be released on September 15 through Fierce Panda. As a preview, the Northern Irish band have shared the record's title track, a melodic pop-rock number with a relentless rhythm section, dynamic vocals and rousing melodies courtesy of synths and distorted guitars. Vocalist and guitarist Tim Wheeler said:

“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.”

About the video, he added: “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…”

Ash will support the record with a co-headline UK and European tour with The Subways. The UK leg will begin on September 30 at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-On-Sea and conclude with a London show at the O2 Forum Kentish Town on October 11.

The European leg will then kick off on November 19 in Utrecht and run until December 11, when it will conclude in Paris. Tickets for all dates go on general sale at 10am local time on June 21.
