Coming 20 years after their breakout, the Irish pop-punk trio's new album is a welcome return to form
It’s been a long way back to basics for Ash. The Irish trio became stars as teenagers in the U.K. for their ebullient pop-punk jams and endearing youthful antics, cute enough to be (erroneously) marketed as a boy band in their early days but RAWK enough to cite J Mascis as a key influence.

They started the year as Manchester’s best-kept secret, hometown heroes playing down a murky past. But The Stone Roses end ’89 as the only independent band to truly matter, creators of one of the decade’s finest debut LP’s, and a new single that looks set to rocket than to even dizzier heights.
