Frank Turner has released a new single, "The Gathering," which was produced by Rich Costey and features a guitar solo by Jason Isbell and drums by Muse drummer Dom Howard. It's a fiery, anthemic song, and it's about missing the cathartic experience of live music. "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," Frank said. It definitely sounds like a song that would be a crowdpleaser in a live setting, and Frank is hoping to do some real-life UK shows this summer. Listen and watch the video, and check out the full list of tour dates, below.

"The Gathering" is also the name of Frank's new signature beer with Top Rope Brewing, and you can enter a contest to see Frank perform at Top Rope's Liverpool location in July.
