Ash play new songs at Isle Of Skye Festival

The slimmed-down band rock the jocks

Ash unveiled a host of tracks from their forthcoming album at the Isle Of Skye Festival in Scotland today (May 26).

Tim Wheeler‘s men ended their rapturously-received set with the new album title track ‘Twilight Of The Innocents’. A radical departure from the choppy punk of old, it is roughly six minutes long, a sprawling opus of feedback and elegant harmonies.

‘Polaris’, a U2-style ballad, slated for release as the album’s second single on 18 June, also made it into the set, as did recent comeback single ‘You Can’t Have It All’.

Now without guitarist Charlotte Hatherley, the slimmed-down trio also played a host of hits including ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Kung Fu’ and ‘Burn Baby Burn’.

‘Twilight Of The Innocents’ is released on July 2.
