Tim hints band are considering recording a new album
Monday, October 17th, 2011
Ash frontman Tim Wheeler has suggested that the band may reconsider their decision to no longer record studio albums. The band had previously said that their 2007 fifth album ‘Twilight Of The Innocents’ would be their last studio album and they would only be releasing singles from then on. They followed this in 2009 by undertaking a prolific spell of releasing tracks, with one song released every two weeks for a year as part of their A-Z series.
But the band’s frontman has now relented and has told BBC 6Music that he may have been wrong to pronounce that the album format was dead as it was very tough to continually market singles.
I think the album is probably still the best medium because in a way it’s almost the most economic one when there’s so little money coming in to make music. This probably offers the best way of doing it because you don’t have to market it for very long whereas a year of doing a singles campaign is quite challenging
