FRANK TURNER ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM

England Keep My Bones Due Out June 7th On Epitaph Records

Celebrated folk/punk hero and recent nominee for NME’s Best Solo
Artist award, Frank Turner is set to release his highly anticipated
fourth album entitled England Keep My Bones this coming June 7th via
Epitaph Records.

Recorded within the stunning confines of Church Studios at Crouch End,
Frank, along with his band and producer Tristan Ivemy, has created an
album steeped in the heart and soul of England. The record has a
touching undercurrent of yearning, playing like a heartfelt homage to
Turner’s homeland, friends and family which he so often has to leave
as he travels the world with his guitar.

With an acoustic guitar very much at its core, the album is noticeably
more folky than the preceding Poetry Of The Deed, and even features a
traditional English style a cappella. With contributions from ex-Hold
Steady keyboardist Franz Nicolay, folk singers Emily Barker and Chris
T-T, and Unbelievable Truth’s Andy Yorke, the songs address themes of
mortality, relationships and religion in what proves to be an
undeniably brave and beautiful album.

“I can’t wait to get this record out there,” Frank explains. “The new
songs have been going down really well live, but I think that when
people hear the studio versions they’re going to go nuts. I really
think it’s the strongest set of material I’ve had on one record.”

Frank Turner will be showcasing songs from England Keep My Bones as he
takes to the road for a special solo tour in April.  Playing intimate
venues up and down the country, it will be an ideal chance to see
Frank Turner up close and personal before he spends the summer
stirring vast crowds at festival throughout the world.
