Reviewing Outbreak Fest in 2018, NME called the event “a visceral, thrilling celebration of the last true subculture,” writing: “Outbreak Fest, held every year in the north of England, is one of a handful of DIY festivals that provide congregation for the hardcore scene – Philadelphia’s This Is Hardcore is another.
“Here you’ll find swarms of people moshing, stagediving and generally hurling themselves about the place to the music – a rhythm-heavy evolution of rock which amplifies all of that genre’s most brutal moments, to provide as cathartic a release as you’re ever likely to find in any venue, at home or abroad.”
Turnstile recently returned with a surprise new EP called ‘TURNSTILE LOVE CONNECTION’.
The 4-track record from the Baltimore hardcore outfit features the recently released single ‘MYSTERY’, alongside three other new tracks.
Turnstile’s new release also comes accompanied by a short film directed by vocalist Brendan Yates.
