Irish rock band Ash has partnered with Livestream to broadcast an exclusive performance streaming live from the band’s own Atomic Heart Studio in NYC.
On February 3, at 3:00pm EST/12noon PST, fans can tune in to Ash’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ash), website (http://www.ash-official.com), or Livestream.com (http://www.livestream.com/ash) to view the broadcast.
Immediately following the performance, the members of Ash—Tim Wheeler, Mark Hamilton and Rick McMurray — will interact with their fans via a live Q+A session where they will answer questions submitted via Twitter and Facebook.
In October 2009 Ash launched the A-Z Series, a new approach to record releases. The ultimate singles band will deliver the ultimate singles collection – a yearlong series of bi-weekly single releases, with limited edition collectors’ vinyl. The A-Z Series will see Ash release 26 singles in one year. The first taster was a free download of Return Of White Rabbit, a refreshing electro take on the unstoppable Ash formula.
The unique subscription service runs from the band’s website and own label Atomic Heart Records and its launch was promptly followed by another Ash innovation: the A to Z Tour. The band embarked on an alphabetical tour of the UK, a brave trip around the British Isles from Aldershot to Zennor, bringing their tunes, new and old, to some of the nation’s lesser-known music venues. This April and May, Ash return to some more familiar venues in the UK as they visit cities like Cambridge, London, Oxford and Glasgow.
The US awaits a North American tour, but until then, we can tune in to catch this exclusive live performance on February 3 at 3pm EST/12noon PST. The A-Z Series subscription is available for purchase on Ash’s website: WWW.ASH-OFFICIAL.COM
With Livestream as the exclusive streaming provider of the event on February 3, the player for the webcast can be embedded anywhere. Integration with Facebook and Twitter allows viewers to engage in an online conversation with other fans and the band.
