Ash Return To Release 26 New Songs In 12 Months

For the past year Ash have been holed up in their New York HQ, Atomic Heart Studios, writing and recording a series of songs that will form what Ash is calling the "A-Z series." Starting in October, every two weeks for the next twelve months, Ash will release one single on limited 7” vinyl and digital download...Starting with ‘A’ and ending at 'Z,' all 26 songs will be released on Ash’s own Atomic Heart Records and will be available through shops and by subscription through the band’s website.

Ash kick of this series with a bonus track (not one of the forthcoming 26 songs) -- the Mark Hamilton penned song "Return of White Rabbit." Fans are currently able to download this song free of charge on the Ash website and 1000 limited 7” will be made available through mail order and selected independent record shops starting June 8th.

The exclusive promo CDs for "Return of White Rabbit" have art work created personally by members of the band; Rick’s pack of playing cards, Tim’s apocalyptic bunny rabbits and Mark’s day-glo stencils.

Ash will be playing a few warm up shows before playing the Bloomsbury Ballroom in early June, followed by a number of festivals over the summer.

With 18 Top 40 UK hits, Ash are one of the most successful "singles bands" of recent times, consistently bothering charts and airwaves with their distinctive, lovable and inventive pop.

In 2007 Ash released the album "Twilight Of The Innocents," bequeathed another brace of hit singles "You Can’t Have It All" and "Polaris," before promptly announcing they would no longer release albums.
