Wishbone Ash Returning With New Album, ‘Elegant Stealth’

Wishbone Ash

After more than four decades together and more than 20 studio albums to their credit, Wishbone Ash are still going strong — and they have a collection of brand new tracks to prove it. The band’s latest album, ‘Elegant Stealth,’ is scheduled for a Nov. 25 release, breaking a four-year drought between studio recordings and offering 11 new songs from one of the most influential British groups of the rock era.

Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash helped pioneer the twin-guitar sound later popularized by countless rock acts, from the Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd to Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden. Though they reached their commercial peak relatively early in their career, with 1972’s ‘Argus,’ Wishbone Ash have stayed together more or less constantly over the decades, with guitarist-vocalist Andy Powell anchoring the many incarnations of the band.

‘Elegant Stealth’ follows a flurry of live activity for the current Wishbone Ash lineup, which features Powell, guitarist Muddy Manninen, bassist Bob Skeat, and drummer Joseph Crabtree. The band will tour behind the album for six weeks starting January, followed by a planned series of American dates in April.
