Ashes To Ashes 6/2/18
Friday 23rd March sees the release of the long awaited self-titled debut album by Northern Ireland based band No Hot Ashes on Frontiers Music Srl. Originally formed in 1983, NHA were influenced by UFO, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Journey, Foreigner, Thin Lizzy and other Classic Rock/AOR acts of that era. They released their first single, ‘She Drives Me Crazy’, in 1986 and supported bands such as Mama’s Boys, Magnum, Girlschool and Steve Marriott’s Packet of Three. NHA are currently preparing to hit the road in support of what is now a very eagerly anticipated debut album, with shows already planned for late Spring and Summer. Unfortunately for the group, the pleasure of releasing the album is also tinged with great sadness as founding member, bass player and close friend Paul Boyd tragically lost a brave battle with cancer in 2017. Paul appears on the album and the band are respectfully dedicating its release to his memory.
