FRANK TURNER AND THE SLEEPING SOULS
Frank Turner has just announced a headline performance at Whelan’s on Sunday September 18th, where he will be joined by his band The Sleeping Souls.
Frank Turner’s meteoric rise to success continues this year with news of award nominations, special intimate shows, festival appearances and details of a fourth studio album scheduled for release this summer.
As well as being confirmed for a plethora of exciting UK, US and European festivals – including headlining the Third Stage at Download Festival on 12th June and headlining Blissfields on 1st July – the summer will see the release of his highly anticipated fourth studio album ‘England Keep My Bones’. Recorded in Crouch End’s stunning Church Studios, Frank has laid down fifteen tracks with his band Ben, Nigel, Tarrant and Matt and producer Tristan Ivemy for a record with the quintessential English sound he has been searching for.
Frank was recently nominated for two NME Awards. Firstly for the impressive Best Solo Artist alongside Paul Weller, Florence And The Machine, Laura Marling and Kanye West and secondly for Best Band Blog or Twitter for recognising Frank’s openness with his fans.
The past twelve months has seen Frank reach new dizzying heights of success that has included a support slot for Green Day at the vast Wembley Stadium in June; scooping the prestigious ‘Spirit Of Independence’ Kerrang! Award in August and headlining a sold out Brixton Academy show back in December; as well as spending the year touring extensively not just in the UK, Europe and America but also as far a field as New Zealand, Australia and China.
With the release of his new album and a summer chock full of gigs and festival appearances 2011 is shaping up very nicely indeed and Frank’s path to total world domination will continue apace.
Frank Turner also plays three solo shows in Ireland in September:
Kilkenny – SET Theatre – Tuesday 13th
Cork – Cyprus Avenue – Wednesday 14th
Galway – Roisin Dubh – Thursday 15th
