New album Be More Kind features the track '1933' and is released on Fri 4 May
Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls have announced a UK tour in support of the upcoming album Be More Kind. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Fri 2 Feb. Presale tickets go on sale through O2 Priority at 10am on Wed 31 Feb.
Be More Kind is set for release on Fri 4 May, and Turner, formerly the frontman of post-hardcore group Million Dead, has unveiled the track '1933' ahead of the album's release.
The new song, he says, was inspired by the so-called 'links' between the American alt-right and punk. He says: 'The idea that Breitbart or Steve Bannon think they have anything to do with punk rock makes me extremely angry.'
True punk Turner will host his own Campfire Punkrock event in upstate New York this summer. The event takes place from Mon 30 Jul–Fri 3 Aug, with tickets going for in the region of a couple of thousand dollars. Formal gourmet dinners are included in the price.
