Still going strong and churning out albums like they’re afraid someone’s going to take their instruments away from them, the ever-popular Ash have announced a UK tour that kicks off on the 19th of April in Southampton.

Ash were Northern Ireland's contribution to Britpop, which was simply British pop in the 90s, spun like everything else in the decade. Ash however needed no spinning and stood out in a grungy, indie fashion and didn’t need to fellate Tony Blair even once.

Last year, the band embarked on a tour that saw them work their way through the country in an A-Z fashion. They’ve always been men of letters; the name ‘Ash’ was the first word in the dictionary they liked. This year, alphabetically-speaking, they’re all over the place, but probably none the worse for it.

Their shows are:

19 Apr - Southampton University
20 Apr – Cambridge, Junction
21 Apr – Norwich, Waterfront
23 Apr – Birmingham, Irish Centre
24 Apr – Leeds, Metropolitan University
25 Apr – Newcastle, O2 Academy
27 Apr – Glasgow, O2 ABC
28 Apr – Manchester, Academy 2
30 Apr – Bristol, O2 Academy
01 May – Brighton, Concorde 2
02 May – Oxford, O2 Academy
04 May – London, Electric Ballroom
Tickets are on sale Monday 11th Jan at 9am. Click Here to Compare & Buy Ash Tickets

Once we had survived a punishing winter that would have made even your average White Walker cling to their hot water bottle, it came time to talk ‘soundtrack to the summer’. As ever, the conversation pretty much started and finished with Ash. Possessing a typically enchanting feelgood factor that belied the heartache at its core, the Northern Irish trio’s new album ‘Islands’ was tailor made to accompany bright blue skies and long lazy days topping up your tan.
Ash - Islands (Album Review)
Thu 31 May 2018
Some albums make an instant impact, others take a little time to reveal their charms. The quick-fix magic of the former often wears off swiftly, while the latter usually possess a depth of quality that screams ‘built to last’. With that in mind, any initial feelings of disappointment towards ‘Islands’, the seventh effort of Ash’s eternally youthful career, should be shelved until its stealthy allure has been given the opportunity to sink in.

Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
