Their newest track is a "sweeping ballad of love, life and hope".
The track is set for release on June 17th, examining "life and what it means at its core".
"Christy, Joe, Billy, Alan and Rod were due to release this beautiful single earlier this year. A certain pandemic changed plans, but the band felt the time is right to put this new music out to the world," the statement reads.
Lead vocalist Christy Dignam celebrated his 60th birthday in lockdown, recently revealing that he is receiving chemotherapy once again in his battle against a rare form of blood cancer.
The 'Crazy World' singer was diagnosed with amyloidosis, an incurable form of cancer, in 2013.
He had been receiving treatment in London for the condition but has been cocooning in Ireland since the COVID-19 outbreak.
The band's new single 'Hold On' is a "sweeping ballad of love, life and hope" mingled with Aslan's anthemic sound.
