Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls
Plus Special Guests Koo Koo Kanga Roo
After his acclaimed performance on the main stage at Sonisphere festival in Knebworth Park earlier this year, Frank Turner has announced his latest UK tour with The Sleeping Souls for September 2014.
Turner rounded off a busy and hugely successful 2013 by playing a show with Billy Bragg in aid of Shelter. As well as the intimate gig at Wiltons in London in December, the pair took to the streets for a busking session for the charity. He also packed in a title-winning performance on Celebrity Mastermind, answering questions on his chosen specialist subject of Iron Maiden. The episode was screened on BBC One in January.
Tape Deck Heart reached number one on the iTunes chart, number two on the Official Chart and also entered the Top Ten on the US iTunes Chart in its week of release, underlining Frank Turner’s arrival as a crossover DIY star. Tape Deck Heart is his most expertly crafted yet, an album pockmarked with years of relentless touring and prolific writing, where Turner sounds at his most accomplished without sandpapering down his raw edge, spinning narrative tales through rousing, adrenaline-veined anthems.
