It seems like forever since we heard of any activity from the Ash camp. You could usually tell of an impending album release with the rumbling thunder of a single or two to tide you over. Still fear not, it would appear the band are stretching their legs and taking to the road as a primer for the release of their sixth studio album (which still doesn’t have a title). The tour is something of a mini one for them, dodging the arenas and heading back to the university establishments which in all honesty suit this lot as much as those speck on the horizon stadium gigs. Its also the first time the band will be back on the road since Charlotte Hatherley left to follow her solo career. So this will be a chance to catch the band at their original leaner fighting weight. Book your tickets now.
