Ash Announce New Album + Release New Single 'Race The Night'

Ash announce their first new album together in more than five years, and have shared new single alongside news of an upcoming UK / EU tour. 'Race The Night', the band’s eighth studio album, will be released on 15th September 2023 via one of their earliest label homes Fierce Panda. With 29 years, 18 hit singles, seven studio albums and an unfathomable number of tour dates since their appearance on the label’s 1994 'Crazed And Confused compilation, 'Race The Night' is both a party with old friends and a message to leap into the present with arms wide open.


1. Race The Night

2. Usual Places

3. Reward In Mind

4. Oslo (feat. Démira)

5. Like A God

6. Peanut Brain

7. Crashed Out Wasted

8. Braindead

9. Double Dare

10. Over & Out

11. Like A God (Reprise)

Fitting then that the lead single should be the album’s title-track, with its super-charged and widescreen anthemia being the perfect primer for a record that has melodies to spare. “Before the shadows let us go, and it’s too late, to race the night” sings lead vocalist and guitarist Tim Wheeler as the band feel the heat of obsession on their backs and motor away to grab hold of opportunity.

Wheeler comments:

“'Race the Night' is the sound of the band reveling 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.”

Continuing about the video he says:

“'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…”
