Ash have announced that they will be celebrating this year's Record Store Day by releasing a limited edition vinyl exclusive called BBC Sessions 1994-1999".
The special numbered release will be limited to just 1000 copies and will be pressed on bright pink vinyl. The band had this to say, "Ash have been big fans of RSD for years.
"The event captures the excitement and buzz we all felt as kids trawling independent record stores for our favourite releases that were our teenage lifeblood.
"It’s also a huge deal for us to make our RSD debut with a BBC sessions record. Sharing of Nirvana’s legendary session appearances via cassette recordings of Peel’s show were a massive influence on us in the early days.
"Hearing their already stripped down aesthetic pared down to the absolute core was so special as was their inspired choices of covers. It’s such an honour to be able to reveal this side of Ash on vinyl for the first time, still following in our heroes footsteps all these years later!” See the tracklisting below:
