Frank Turner announces new LP & tour with Lucero & Menzingers, shares song

Frank Turner

Frank Turner has announced his seventh album, Be More Kind, which drops on May 4 via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor UK/Interscope. It was produced by former White Denim members Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, and Charlie Hugall (who’s worked with Florence + the Macnhine and others). The album includes recent ballad-y single “There She Is” and the just-released, more ripping single “1933,” which Turner says was inspired by articles that suggested the alt-right was punk rock. “That filled me with a mixture of incredulity and anger. The idea that Breitbart or Steve Bannon think they have anything to do with punk rock makes me extremely angry.” You can hear both songs below, and if you pre-order the album, you get instant downloads of both of those songs.

Frank Turner has also announced a May/June tour that includes Lucero, The Menzingers and The Homeless Gospel Choir on most dates, which is a pretty awesome lineup. There’s also a Red Rocks show in August with Lucero and an acoustic set from Face to Face. Turner also has his Campire Punk Rock camp in Big Indian, NY in July/August, and an appearance at Asbury Park’s Hear Me Sea Festival on September 29.

His tour includes a big NYC show on June 6 at Playstation Theater with Lucero and The Homeless Gospel Choir but unfortunately no Menzingers on that one. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/2) at 10 AM with AmEx and album presales starting beforehand. All dates are listed below.
