Frank Turner is set to visit O2 Academy Bristol this spring to promote his new album Tape Deck Heart.
Following a year that saw a headline show at a sold-out Wembley Arena and a performance at the London Olympics, Winchester-born folk/punk hero Frank Turner starts 2013 by announcing the title, tracklisting and release date for his forthcoming album, plus details of a short run of UK headline shows.
On April 22 Frank will release Tape Deck Heart, his highly-anticipated fifth studio album through Xtra Mile Recordings.
Produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, Weezer, Rage Against the Machine, Interpol), Tape Deck Heart is the follow-up to 2011’s England Keep My Bones which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.
The first fruit from the new album was the raucous party belter Four Simple Words, which was given away as a free download on Christmas Day.
Frank said: “So, friends, the time is finally upon us! My new record is called Tape Deck Heart.
“There will be two versions – the normal record, and then a special edition with special packaging and an extra six songs. I’m pleased as punch with it.
“Some of you will know some of the songs from us playing them live, but there’s a whole bunch of new stuff on there as well. I hope you like it!”
Frank Turner hits O2 Academy Bristol on April 21, 2013. Tickets go on sale at 9am on January 25, 2013.
