Frank Turner has posted a documentary online that charts his rise to success. Scroll down to watch the video now.

'The Way I Tend To Be' follows his formative years in hardcore band Kneejerk before moving on to his period as a frontman in UK punk group Million Dead. He also talks at length about the burnout that eventually steered him to become a solo artist. You can watch the documentary by scrolling below.

The singer-songwriter is set to release a new album 'Tape Deck Heart' on April 22 on Xtra Mile Recordings. His fifth studio effort as a solo artist was produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Weezer, Rage Against The Machine).

Speaking to NME about his choice of producer, Turner said, "I'm an enormous Weezer fan. There's a fair amount of Weezer influence on this record." Earlier this week, Turner also gave away a free download 'Good & Gone'. He is due to tour the UK later this month.

Frank Turner will play:

Manchester Academy (April 17)
Glasgow O2 Academy (18)
Leeds Uni Refectory (19)
Bristol Academy (21)
Birmingham Academy (24)
London Forum (25)
