Ash Are Back With A Brand New Single Ahead of New Record ‘Islands’


Alt Rock Band Ash have just released a brand new single ‘Buzzkill’ ahead of their upcoming album ‘Islands’. The new album will be their first since ‘Kablammo’ in 2015 and is their seventh record to date. The record is due to be released on May 18th and will be released under music label ‘Infectious Music’.

New single ‘Buzzkill’ features Damien O’Neill of The Undertones and Mickey Bradley on backing vocals. Check it out below:

Frontman Tim Wheeler spoke of the track recently: ‘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. Having seen The Undertones playing a couple of times recently I was guiltily thinking how much the backing vocals I’d written for ‘Buzzkill’ were mimicking their style. So I thought it would only be right to ask Damien (O’Neill) and Mickey (Bradley) to sing on it and we were honoured when that they said yes, despite all the filthy cussing. It’s a fun song and will hopefully ignite a few mosh-pits for us this year.’
