On September 15, 2023, the three-man rock band ASH from Northern Ireland will release their 8th new album, “Race The Night”, for the first time in about 5 years.
They had already created a big buzz with several pre-released singles. Frontman Tim Wheeler says, They released rock anthems one after another that are so youthful and fresh that it beggars belief that they are an established group that has been active for about 30 years, such as “Crashed Out Wasted,” which is about that night when I drank too much. The full details of their long-awaited new album “Race The Night”, their first in about five years, have finally been revealed. Tim Wheeler commented on the songs on the new album as follows: “It embodies the joy of reuniting as a band after surviving the crazy world of the early 2020s when we were isolated and separated. This album is full of such sounds.”
Along with the release of the new album, the music video for the new song “Oslo (feat. Demira)” from the album was also released. Demira, a female singer-songwriter from the Netherlands, participates in a duet on the sepia-toned love song. A nostalgic love romance is written in a beautiful ballad.
