"There's no doubt that Frank Turner is the most exciting and talented anti-folk troubadour in the country"

June 8, 2009 - Los Angeles, CA - English folk-punk singer-songwriter Frank Turner will tour the US with The Gaslight Anthem this fall in support of his forthcoming album, Poetry of the Deed, due out in September. In anticipation of the new album, Epitaph Records/Xtra Mile will be reissuing Turner's critically acclaimed album Love Ire & Song on July 21.
Described as possessing the "heavy-clever wit and wry, do-or-die romantic solidarity of socially superconscious singer-songwriter Billy Bragg by way of Joe Strummer" (Austin Chronicle), Turner has emerged as one of the UK's most prolific singer-songwriters of the past decade. His sophomore album, Love Ire & Song, "fourteen tracks, 500 emotions, three chords, and the truth" (Austin Chronicle), has been called "as defiantly brilliant as ever" (NME) and "so personal and unique that it will never be able to be mimicked by anyone" (Westword).
And that is only the beginning. Poetry of the Deed promises to be his best work yet...
Turner's fiery passion translates in his live show with spine tingling vigor and honesty. "His songs are deeply personal, his lyrics evocative and gut-wrenching. No veiled references. Everything means exactly what it sounds like it means. He sings with all his heart, body and soul" (MercuryNews.com). Turner will tour with The Offspring at the end of June and with The Gaslight Anthem beginning September. Don't miss one of the most talented singer-songwriter's around today.
