New Slang: AshThursday 17th May
21:00 - 02:00
Tickets available from: www.banquetrecords.com
The night before their new album is released, Ash play at New Slang.
The trio are gearing up to release their seventh full length album titled Islands that follows on from their 2015 album Kablammo!. It's been a long, long time since they've played a Kingston show but we're super excited to welcome them back to celebrate the release of Islands, singles Buzzkill and Annabel give us a glimpse of how great they still are after decades of being so.
“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 and Mickey 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.”
Doors & stage times TBC, but we expect doors to be at 9:00pm with Ash on at 10:30pm.
After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of The Vaccines, Foals, The Wombats, Wolf Alice, Two Door Cinema Club, Mystery Jets, Peace and many more until 2:00am.
