Virginia band Turnover announces their fifth full-length album ‘Myself in the Way’ will be out 04 November via Run For Cover Records. Along with the album’s announcement, Turnover have shared the title track ‘Myself in the Way’ featuring vocals from Brendan Yates of Turnstile. Along with ‘Myself in the Way,’ the 12-track album will include the previously released singles ‘Mountains Made of Clouds’ and ‘Wait Too Long,’ which arrived with home-video style footage created by the band along with friends Blair Kemp and Kyle Lamb.
Speaking about the meaning behind ‘Myself in the Way,’ vocalist Austin Getz says, “Over the last couple of years, I really tried to stop finding reasons why not to do something. This song specifically is about getting engaged despite fears I’ve always had of being able to provide for a family, to give as much as someone you love might need forever. It’s about letting love lead the way despite your fears, about not letting your doubts, your ego, your self get in the way of it.”
‘Myself in the Way’ was born out of Turnover’s desire to continue evolving their sound, making each body of work more exploratory than the last, but it’s also a byproduct of the band’s growth both as individuals and collectively. Armed with a flurry of new ways for the band to express themselves creatively, the band challenged themselves to make their most ambitious body of work to date. Co-produced by frontman Austin Getz alongside frequent collaborator Will Yip, ‘Myself In The Way’ sounds more expansive than anything they’ve done, intently honing in on sound design this time around, and yet it’s wholeheartedly more intimate and self-reliant on their vision and execution. Bassist Danny Dempsey painted the cover artwork himself, and longtime touring guitarist Nick Rayfield contributed songs to the album to lend an additional spark. The album also features guest appearances from peers and friends like Bre Morell of Austin-based band Temple of Angels on the track ‘Ain’t Love Heavy,’ and Turnstile’s Brendan Yates on the title track out today.
In 2019, Turnover released their fourth studio album ‘Altogether’, which The FADER described as “their weirdest and most accessible to date” and features the stand out tracks ‘Plant Sugar’ and ‘Much After Feeling.’ 2017 saw the release of their celebrated album ‘Good Nature’, which features the hit song ‘Super Natural.’
