Ash have announced a tour to celebrate 20 years since the release of their debut album, 1977.

The Northern Irish trio are set to embark on a worldwide tour this year, which includes dates at Dublin's Olympia on 10 November, London's Roundhouse on 11 December and the Manchester Ritz on 12 December.

The album - named 1977 after frontman Tim Wheelan and bassist Mark Hamilton's year of birth - featured the likes of Girl From Mars, Oh Yeah and Kung Fu.

A statement from the band reads: "We're as excited as we are in disbelief to announce the 20th anniversary tour of 1977.

"Some of these songs have grown with us throughout those years; others have the ability to transport us mentally and emotionally back to that crazy formative year of 1995 to 96. These gigs are going to be a trip, trip, trip!”

Tickets for the Ash tour go on sale from tomorrow (24 June).
