Frank Turner has had a busy year, even by his own standards. Following the release of his fifth studio album ‘Tape Deck Heart’ in April, he played a sold-out tour of the UK and has been on the road with his band The Sleeping Souls ever since. So far his global tour has taken him across Europe, to the Far East, Australasia and North America.
Unperturbed by his extensive gigging, Frank has now announced his biggest ever headline tour for February 2014. The 7 date run includes his first ever headline date at the huge London O2 Arena as well as other impressive arenas in Cardiff, Manchester, Nottingham and more. Turner, who headlined Wembley Arena last year and was also chosen to open Danny Boyle’s stunning Olympic Opening Ceremony, last weekend played the Main Stage at Reading/Leeds festival, where he was the highest-billed UK artist on that day.
Frank Turner will also release his new single, ‘Oh Brother’, on November 4th through Xtra Mile Recordings. It’s the fourth single to be taken from his acclaimed fifth studio album ‘Tape Deck Heart’. The song is inspired by erstwhile band mate Ben Dawson of punk rock band Million Dead, who split in 2005. Dawson features in the video for ‘Oh Brother’, which you can watch here.
