Holy smoke!

When ASH roll into town to promote their first album since reverting back to a three-piece, it will certainly be lower key than many of their previous trips to the city.

As anyone who was present for their QMU gig in April will testify, Ash are now a band with enough tracks behind them to let their music do the talking.

To that end, this year’s Twilight Of The Innocents has maybe been a let down for some as it lacks the instant ‘woooosh’ of much of their early, carefree pop-rock singles. It is, for want of a better description, a more mature and complex record which, while decent, maybe lacks the spark of earlier offerings.

Possibly that’s one of the reasons why the band will no longer release albums in the future, only singles. It could be a wise move to play to their obvious strengths, one of which is a live show with fantastic energy which will blow your socks off (if you wear any).
