About Poetry Of The Deed by Frank Turner

Continuing his meteoric rise, celebrated folk-punk singer-songwriter Frank Turner has released his third studio album, Poetry of the Deed, via Epitaph/Xtra Mile. Already a household name in the UK, the acclaimed troubadour has his sights set on winning over US fans with his ardent roots driven acoustic rock and relentless touring.

With the help of Grammy nominated producer Alex Newport (Death Cab For Cutie, At The Drive-In, Two Gallants), Turner captures the essence of his fervent live show with Poetry of the Deed. Powerfully candid and charismatic, Turner's hardcore roots shine through with fiery passion as he embarks on a lyrical journey of life experiences that speak to listeners with great honesty and authenticity.

From the epic country-punk rambler "The Road," to the anti-folk manifesto "Poetry of the Deed," to the political rants of "Sons of Liberty" and the rousing punk anthem "Try This At Home," Poetry of the Deed establishes Turner as one of the most inspiring and lyrically gifted songwriters of the last few decades.
