Turner is currently laying down punk project vocals in London
Frank Turner is currently in the studio recording his hardcore project Mongol Horde‘s debut album.
Turner launched the band in August 2012 with gigs in London and Leeds as well as at Reading and Leeds Festivals. The band also features Turner’s former Million Dead bandmate Ben Dawson and Matt Nasir, who is a member of the singer’s current backing band The Sleeping Souls. The band are recording in Amazing Grace Studios in London. Earlier today (December 12), Turner tweeted that he had recorded the vocals for six songs, with seven still to go. He wrote:
Long (and intense) day of @Mongol_Horde vocals. 6 songs done. 7 to go. Dez thinks I’m mental after reading the lyrics.
