Frank Turner releasing new album, touring (dates)

Frank Turner

British folk punk Frank Turner is set to release the followup to 2011’s England Keep My Bones with Tape Deck Heart on April 22 via Epitaph. The album was recorded with his band, The Sleeping Souls, and was produced and mixed by Rich Costey, who has worked with big name rock bands like Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys, Rage Against the Machine, Weezer (who Frank names an influence on the new record), and many others. The album will be released as a standard edition and as a deluxe edition with six bonus tracks. Frank hasn’t revealed any studio recordings from the new album yet, but you can check out a live video of him playing one of its songs, “Plain Sailing Weather,” below, along with the tracklist and album art.

Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls will be supporting the new record with an international tour that comes to the US for a few dates this March. Those dates include a NYC show happening on March 4 at Bowery Ballroom, a small show for someone played two Webster Hall shows this past fall. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (2/1) at noon.
