Ash announce UK/European tour and new album Race the Night, share Stephen King-themed horror video for title track

From Loudersound.

Ash have announced details of a new album, Race The Night, shared its title track, and unveiled a lengthy UK and European co-headline tour with The Subways.

Race The Night, the Northern Irish band’s first album in five years, will be released by Fierce Panda on September 15.

Frontman Tom Wheeler says, “Race the Night is the sound of the band revelling 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.”

Speaking about the video for the single, Wheeler adds, “The 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…”
