Ash reveal new album release date

'Kablammo!' is due out on May 26

Ash have announced that their new album ‘Kablammo!’, the band’s first full-length record since 2007, will be released on May 26.

The LP marks a return to the format after the band vowed never to make another album following the release of ‘Twilight Of The Innocents’. They subsequently embarked on the A-Z series, releasing 26 singles – each represented by a letter of the alphabet– every fortnight from October 12 2009 to 27 September 2010 on 7-inch vinyl and through digital download.

“A-Z was a great exercise in creativity and we stand by our choice to do it but we still love the album format,” said drummer Rick McMurray in a statement. “Stepping away from it for eight years has given us a new found love for the format and it’s been really exciting to get back to thinking about music in that way again.”

The group unveiled the single ‘Cocoon’ in January, a track McMurray described as “Ash at their frenetic best: a wall of guitars and a shot of adrenaline with a sweet melodic chaser”. Scroll down to listen.
