Ash Announce Canadian Tour Dates

Published: 2005-02-03
This spring, British rock four-piece Ash will once again make the long trip to North America to try their best to finally break the US market once and for all. The 29-city tour will kick off March 9th in Philadelphia, and after a stint at SXSW Festival in Austin,TX, will wrap up with two dates in New York City on April 17th & 18th. There are three Canadian stops scheduled for the tour - one each in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal.

Ash are criss-crossing the continent in order to support their latest effort 'Meltdown'. The full-length album is the quartet's fifth, and will be released on March 8th on this side of the Atlantic (it was released June 2004 in Britain). Three of Meltdown's 11 tracks have already been released as singles in the UK - the break out 'Clones', 'Starcrossed', and 'Renegade Cavalcade'.

The track-listing of 'Meltdown' is:

'Evil Eye'
'Out of the Blue'
'Renegade Cavalcade'
'On a Wave'
'Won't Be Saved'
'Vampire Love'

Although it's been 10 years since the release of their debut album, Ash still have yet to make an impact in the American market. They've been highly successful back in their native UK, but success continues to elude them in Canada and the USA. With their upcoming tour and critically acclaimed new album, however, things might take a different turn.

Ash's upcoming Canadian gigs:

March 31 Vancouver, BC - Richard's On Richards
April 13 Toronto, ON - Opera House
April 14 Montreal, QC - CafÈ Campus
