New Single Unveiled
Here at World Of Ash we're proud to announce that the new single, scheduled for release on Monday 26th August (yes on Jeds birthday)is none other than the old skool demo 'Envy'. It got it's first airplay just 2 weeks ago via radio 1's Steve Lamacq.
Judging by fans reaction to this release, it's hopefully gonna be big and we're getting our arses in gear for mass promotion in a bid to get Ash the number 1 single that they deserve more than anything. So get those tshirts, posters and leaflets printed and shout about it to your hearts contempt for the Ash Team will get this single to number one and will come out smelling like roses as we always do (you know its true).
10th Year Anniversary Album Is Finally Named
After all of the antisipation of waiting for a name, Ash's 10th Year Anniversary album has been named 'Intergalactic Sonic Sevens'. After everybody spending days coming up with suggestions on the messageboard it came as a slight blow as they didn't use any of them, but using Tims instead which i guess is fair enough really! The album features 2 cds, one of greatest hits (all the singles) and the other named 'Cosmic Debris' being fans favourite B-Sides and dvd footage of all the videos to accompany the greatest hit singles.

New Ash Chat Room for Testing :
Two Nights ago in Switzerland after a gig Mark fell from the roof of the bands tour bus after a drunken fight with an imaginary Jedi cracking his head open on the ground. The band rushed to find him on the ground in a pool of blood thinking the worst. Luckily (thank his lucky stars) he escaped with 40 stitches and now looks like Mr Bump from Mr Men!(he's the one who added that comment!). Despite the accident that could of ended tragically he went ahead with lastnights gig. He added "am counting my blessings! how it wasn't more serious i haven't a clue. everyone else thought i was dead lying in a pool of blood. so in true WWF style 'don't try this at home kids' " He should be as right as rain soon though!
Ash to re-release 'Jack Names The Planets' :
Recently on the ash-official.com messageboard Tav the bands manager has said that they will re-release 'JNTPs' early next year onto CD. As quoted from Tav : "well.....it just so happens that i am going to re-release good old jack. this time on cd, cos so many people have requested it (not many record players out there these days). there's even going to be a bonus track - an early version of 'season', taken from the raptor 12" that mark put out before they signed to infectious.
it won't be on lalaland cos someone tried to sue me for using that name(it belongs to some production company). it will be released through double dragon, my new label and home to little hell.
1. jack names the planets
2. don't know
