Ash recently made their feelings on current pop groups clear by burning hundreds of copies of a Westlife CD during promotion of their previous single 'Shining Light' in front of a sizable London crowd.
Ash's new album, 'Free All Angels', was released on Monday, April 23. Oasis are currently working on material for their new album, due for release later this year.
