Frank Turner Releases New Single, ‘The Gathering’

Frank Turner is well and truly back with his first new solo music release in two years.

Titled as ‘The Gathering’ it’s full of atmosphere to remind us of what it’s like to be in a music setting.

Frank had this to say about the tune:

“It’s about that moment when you come together in a room full of people, and you lean on a stranger and sing along with the chorus and get the words wrong.”

Oh and….. there’s also contributions from Jason Isbell and Muse’s Dom Howard. 

Check out ‘The Gathering’ below.

Live Review: Frank Turner @ Barbican, York

Support: Micah Schnabel, Jess Guise

Date: 08/03/20

I do have to confess, I was in the Photo Pit for a little of each of the artists set’s for this occasion so I do apologise in advance if I fangirl a little bit in this review. Also, I do apologise that this is coming late. I’ve had a bit of trouble finding the right way to do these reviews in an uncertain time in the world at the moment.

Straight off the bat, this was a soulful very toned down show from three distinct artists that did steal the show in their own lights. What’s more, I think being in this intimate a setting for such a large show as well shows how different artists are able to captivate the audience, even if it is in such a calm environment.

First up was Jess Guise, whom I didn’t know at the time but is, in fact, Frank Turner’s wife! In a few ways her musical styling is similar but on the other end of the spectrum of things, it couldn’t be more apart. On one hand, Jess is getting used to performing in front of the fans although, she’s definitely affirmed herself ing the songwriter category where her voice is one of the most defining things about her music aside from the production but everything was so clear when she was performing, you could see why she was there on the stage in terms of her unique attitude as well as her musical skills.

I think I do have to say Micah did remind myself of The Homeless Gospel Choir in terms of the DIY punk-y nature they both have about them, but the things that separate everyone tonight is he was so open about everything he talked about. He was funny, charming and above all, he had this calming quality which came across in his performance that just made you stop and listen to him. You don’t get too many artists such as Micah and it’s important that we listen to the DIY nature because of the lyrics. It’s because of the geographical gap in how he produces his music. He sings about things in the track below, ‘Jazz And Cinnamon Toast Crunch’ that I don’t believe you’d hear if an English artist were to write about and it’s his experiences which divide him among everyone on the lineup.

Lastly, we’ve moved onto Frank Turner, the main man of the night. This tour is in celebration of his latest record, ‘No Man’s Land’ which focuses on the life and stories of historical women. What’s so fantastic about seeing Frank perform is that you see him as a true artist. He’s not doing this performance to prove himself, you see him as playing the tracks so everyone has a chance to hear them and you hear it as if it’s being played for the first time when it’s tracks from the latest record such as ‘Jinny Bingham’s Ghost’, ‘The Lioness’ or more established track such as ‘Get Better’. It’s always as if you know where you’re meant to be when hearing these tracks and I hope Frank continues to alternate and play so many different tracks so people can feel the emotions and celebrate every track and show for many years.

Going into his setlists a little, he played roughly 22 tracks from his career on the evening so you definitely get your money’s worth at a Frank Turner show. But what he’s managed to perfect is how to keep it rising without letting the overall show peak close to midway through his setlist and it’s not just a collection of his best tracks, because there’s always the underrated gems, the heavy hitters and the occasional track that just makes you stand and think about everything there for the performance.

Frank Turner Releases New Single, Announces New Record

It’s coming! Frank Turner has announced his eighth full-length record is coming!

That’s right, the very talented musician’s eighth full-length record, ‘No Man’s Land’ will be releasing his upcoming record on August 16th 2019 via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records.

It will tell the stories of important inspirational women throughout history who don’t receive the recognition they deserve. Throughout the records tracks, there is serial killer Nannie Doss, Byzantine princess Kassiani and more!

On the record, Turner has said:

“It’s bringing together my two main interests in life, which have always been separate from each other – history and songwriting.

“It’s not telling anyone what to do or how to live or how to be, If there was a crowded field of people writing songs about Princess Kassiani then I would see the argument for me bowing out, but there isn’t.

Check out the records first single, ‘Sister Rosetta’ below.


And this is what the tracklisting looks like.

1. Jinny Bingham’s Ghost
2. Sister Rosetta
3. I Believed You, William Blake

Music Video’s 1/5/18

And we’re back for another round of music videos. Slam Dunk Festival has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the week isn’t rocking. We’re kicking things off with hardcore trio MSRY whose latest single’Broken Teeth’ is something you’d find on the heavier side of things.


Continuing with the heavy side, metalcore groud Bleeding Through have finally returned with their new record, ‘Love Will Kill All’ coming at the end of this month. Continuing the video’s is their track ‘Fade Into Ash’.


Back in February of this year, Butcher Babies came over to the UK for a headline run of shows and the weather they received when they came over was well… bad. Now though, we can see what went down at the shows in their video for ‘Look What We’ve Done’. It’s off their third record, ‘Lilith’ which was released in 2017.


The Wonder Years dropped their latest record ‘Sister Cities’ earlier this year and they’re still pushing forward with a record that can make or break them. Continuing their music video heaven is their track ‘Raining In Kyoto.


Next is Oh, Weatherly. We’re eagerly awaiting their record, ‘Lips Like Oxygen’ which drops on July 27th but until then, here’s what we can expect in their video for ‘Here Tonight’.


Now we’ll change things up a touch. Frank Turner has a new record out and it’s amazing. He’s a true genuine artist everyone needs to listen to, just like you have to listen to his new video for ‘Little Changes’.


Now this band have just headlined Slam Dunk Festival to what I’m hearing is roaring reviews. Additionally, Good Charlotte has just announced their upcoming album ‘Generation Rx’ and this is the first material we’re hearing from it in the video for ‘Actual Pain’.


Now, this band we on the same stage but earlier in the days to them. The band in question is State Champs and we might be three singles into their new record but this band could prove to be the next big thing in Pop-Punk as is the video for ‘Mine Is Gold’.


Motionless In White recently parted ways with their bassist Devin “Ghost” Sola but still featured him in their latest music videos for Voices. It’s marking the one year anniversary of ‘Graveyard Shift’, the band’s latest record and as we watch it, what is next for the band?


Lastly. Wait, first I have to say this video dropped today and I just had to have this on the week’s list for the last video because of this band. Halestorm are Grammy winners and everything a rock band should be in the modern age. Hard working, heavy hitting and true musicians. This new video which brings the band into a new age, ‘Uncomfortable’ is a testament to this as their new record, ‘Vicious’ will be dropped on July 27th.
