on April 11, 2018, 12:12pm

Irish alternative rockers Ash are set to return with their latest full-length, Islands, on May 18th via Infectious Music. Serving as the follow-up to 2015’s Kablammo!, the new album was previously previewed with the lead single, “Buzzkill”. Today, the alt trio is back with another sample of the record, “Annabel”.

Where “Buzzkill” was a poppy thrasher, there’s a bit more yearning in “Annabel”. The licks are still plenty tasty, but they’re wrapped around an undeniable sweetness. “Annabel, have no fear/ You can be my Guinevere,” sings frontman Tim Wheeler. “In the storm I will draw you close/ In the tempest, in the snow.” Take a listen below.

Wheeler also recently appeared on  Kyle Meredith With… to discuss Islands and his Muay Thai training. Check that out below.

Islands is out May 18th. Find the complete tracklisting and Ash’s upcoming tour schedule below.
