Hugely popular in the 1990s and 2000s for songs like Girl From Mars, Oh Yeah, Goldfinger, Angel Interceptor, Shining Light and Burn Baby Burn, Ash have already enjoyed a sell-out spring tour and a successful run of festival dates this year.
The Northern Irish band also released the album Kablammo! – their first studio album since 2007 – in May and the single Machinery was released back in October
Kablammo! has been widely lauded as their best work since the chart-topping Free All Angels in 2001.
That was their second number one album after 1977 in 1995.
These days, Ash are back as the original trio they began as with Tim and Mark joined by drummer Rick McMurray.
Fourth member Charlotte Hatherley left in 2006.
Their Leadmill gig is on Thursday, December 10 and tickets are available at http://tinyurl.com/ol26rjm
