Frank Turner – New Album & Tour Dates

With his fourth album ‘England Keep My Bones’ due for release this coming June, everyone’s favourite folk rocker Frank Turner heads out on the road once again, doing what he does best.

The new album  is Frank’s most folk orientated release to date, with a predominantly acoustic sound and an array of contributors including former Hold Steady man Franz Nicolay and folk singers Emily Barker and Chris T-T, helping to deliver another dose of heartfelt anthems.

The past year has been another vintage one for Frank as he yet again embarked on a gruelling tour schedule, which included a jaunt across America with the legendary Social Distortion, and he was rewarded with an NME awards nomination and yet more critical acclaim.

Before another summer spent playing to thousands of festival goers across the UK, Frank returns to his slightly more humble beginnings and sets out this May on a solo tour taking in some smaller venues across the country.  Lancaster Library, Stoke Sugarmill and Manchester’s Night and Day will all play host to Turner’s travelling show, and if you’re a fan it’s advisable to take advantage of the chance to see him play in these intimate venues while you have the chance.

The North West dates are as follows:

14th May Lancaster Library
18th May Manchester Night & Day
20th May Stoke Sugarmill

Tickets are £16 and are on sale Monday 28 February 2011 at 9am via http://www.gigsandtours.com/ / 0844 811 0051.

It’s these intimate venues where Frank honed his craft gigging solo for many years as he built up a passionate and adoring fan base. No doubt, as well as showcasing a host of new songs from ‘England Keep My Bones’, this tour will see the former Million Dead front man pull out a few old favourites for good measure. Catch him while you can.
