Turnstile released their new album ‘GLOW ON’ in August, announcing UK and European tour dates for 2022 shortly after.

Giving Turnstile’s ‘GLOW ON’ a five-star review upon its release, NME wrote: “In 2018, upon the release of their last album ‘Time & Space’, NME called Turnstile “the new shape of punk to come,” a hardcore band intent on tearing down boundaries and disrupting rock music’s status quo.

“Three years on, as they release their third full-length record, ‘GLOW ON’, even the ‘punk’ term now feels too restrictive: this is an album that shuns almost any traditional categorisation, and is all the more thrilling for it.”

Speaking to NME about their live shows in a new interview around the release of ‘GLOW ON’, frontman Brendan Yates said: “The most amazing thing is being able to see the songs come to life, and then exchange with other people that are in a room with you, and experience it together.”
