ASH Live Album!

Fan favourites Ash are here in December for the 20th Anniversary of their number one album 1977! And we've just had news about a live album:

**ASH ANNOUNCE LIVE ALBUM ‘Live On Mars: London Astoria 1997’**

To coincide with the 20th Anniversary of their number one debut 1977, Ash have announced the release of a live album called Live On Mars: London Astoria 1997.

Recorded over the band's record breaking five night run at the London Astoria from the 28th February to the 4th March. The album includes their hit singles ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Kung Fu’, as well as a covers of Abba’s 'Does Your Mother Know’ and Dusty Springfield’s 'I Only Want To Be With You’. The set captures the raw energy of the band on their homecoming celebration to wrap up the epic year of touring of 1977, which was released the previous year.

The album will be released as a limited edition numbered and coloured vinyl, CD and download via the band’s website, the live shows and select retailers. The band said "The Ashtoria Five Night Stand was one of the most memorable run of shows for us. It really was the icing on the cake of a manic year since 1977 was released. We'd achieved a number one album followed by a world tour that came close to breaking us. These shows allowed us to look back and celebrate with everyone involved. And it was one hell of an aftershow!"

“These five nights at The Astoria, from February 28th to March 4th 1997, sound and feel like a party. An exuberant, irresistible celebration of a band who, transcending the faddishness of concurrent Britpop, succeeded on that rarest of commodities: raw talent.” - Ian Fortnam, Classic Rock

To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 1977 the band announced a special run of shows where the album will be played in its entirety. Ash will kick-off the tour with an extensive US tour, followed by shows in the Ireland, mainland Europe and the UK.

The INCREDIBLE Dillinger Escape Plan will be here on January 21st next year, and it's a must-see gig before their hiatus!! Here's the news from

The New Jersey outfit recently announced they'll go on indefinite hiatus following the tour cycle for upcoming sixth album Dissociation, which is due out on October 14 via guitarist Ben Weinman’s Party Smasher Inc label.

Those dates were scheduled to finish in November when they complete a US tour. But now they’ve added 40 shows to their itinerary – and they're calling it their 'final' tour. The first date is planned for the Norwich Waterfront, UK, on January 18. The extensive run of dates will wrap up at the Brussels AB Ballroom, Belgium, on March 5.

They launched Limerent Death – first material from the follow-up to 2013’s One Of Us Is The Killer last month, with Weinman calling it one of his favourite The Dillinger Escape Plan tracks.

He added: “I feel that this song is one of the rare instances where all the members are feeling, and conveying, the same energy from start to end. A sharp focused dagger ploughing its way through thick heavy walls.”
