Today is a lot of things really. History happened, history might be made, and people will be talking about things based upon events from today for years to come.
I know, deep…
I will be ignoring everything today except for the fact that Mr. Frank Turner released an EP today entitled Rock & Roll. The 5 song EP dropped today on iTunes and is available in limited quantities on CD (here’s hoping for a 7″). It’s a sample of what Frank Turner is working on for his 2011 release and I have to say that I love it.
What’s that you say?
Of course I love it you say?
I am Frank Turner obsessed?
Yes I am and I fully admit it.
Turner is a kick ass musician and there is no reason for a music lover like myself to not adore his music. This EP is great start to finish, especially the highly likable anthem “I Still Believe”, a track I was introduced to in October when I got to see Turner open for Social Distortion. Even if it was a new song, it was so infections that by song’s end, everyone was singing along.
See for yourself:
Fun note: The gang vocals on the track were actually taken from the crowds at various live shows.
With non-stop touring all year, Frank Turner may be one of the busiest musicians out there. Somehow between playing cross-country tours as well as festivals the guy found some free time to record new material and I could not be happier with the results on the EP.
Here’s to the full length release in 2011.
