Ash have today released this goofy clip for elastic new single ‘Confessions In The Pool’, the latest lifted from their Top 20 charting new album ‘Islands’ (out now on Infectious Music).

Speaking about the video – which parodies ideas of religious devotion – Ash say; “The video is a surreal play on the song title. It takes the Confessions idea and runs with it so far it becomes surreal meditation on belief and salvation in the modern age. Blessed are the cheese makers!

The new video arrives just ahead of extensive UK & European tour dates from Ash, including 3 newly announced Irish shows. Following an appearance from Ash at summer’s BBC Biggest Weekend alongside The Undertones (who sing BVs on 6Music-playlisted single ‘Buzzkill’), the UK tour will also take in London’s O2 Forum on October 24
