RELEASES NEW DOCUMENTARY
‘THE WAY I TEND TO BE’
NEW ALBUM ‘TAPE DECK HEART’ OUT 22nd APRIL ON Xtra Mile Recordings
Frank Turner has released an intimate new documentary charting his incredible personal journey from erstwhile frontman of seminal UK punk group Million Dead to internationally recognised solo artist. Directed by Gregory Nolan, and told in Frank’s own words, ‘The Way I Tend To Be’ offers fans an insight into the formative years of one of the UK’s leading musicians.
Amidst previously unseen footage, Frank explains his beginnings from his first hardcore band Kneejerk, to being front man for UK punk iconoclasts Million Dead and their anarchic and energetic live shows, also talking at length about the burnout that eventually steered him to become a solo artist. From humble beginnings and extensive touring of the UK, Frank’s burgeoning talents as a solo writer and performer began to resonate with a small but fervent fan base, but breakout success followed in the wake of a string of critically acclaimed albums, resulting in a recent 12 month period in which Frank headlined a sold-out Wembley Arena show and performed by invitation of Danny Boyle at the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Currently on tour in Australasia with a sold out run of UK dates to follow in April ‘The Way I Tend To Be’ is an insightful and arresting documentary for new and diehard fans alike.
The new album 'Tape Deck Heart' is released on 22nd April on Xtra Mile Recordings.
