Ash to released new material
2009 will see band’s first new recordings for two years
Ash have announced they will be writing and recording new material scheduled for a release in 2009.

The Northern Irish rockers stated in 2007 that they will not be releasing anymore studio albums, but have now revealed they are working on new releases.

Speaking to BBC, frontman Tim Wheeler said: "We knew what we said [about not releasing any more albums] was quite shocking but we didn't think it would create waves that big. Loads of people have copied us since, a lot of bands are saying they're going to do the same thing so it's been inspirational for a lot of people already. I just can't wait to put it in effect.”

Wheeler also hinted that the format of the releases may not be conventional: “We've been working up some diabolical inventions to come out next year. It's been very freeing being away from the album format and not thinking, 'Oh, this track has to fit with that track'. We're just trying all sorts of crazy stuff. We've got one album worth so far but we want to get a double album worth of stuff".

The band are due to re-release their debut album ‘1977’ and will be playing it in full at a one-off show at Camden Roundhouse on September 5th.
