Turnstile will open their UK tour at Manchester Academy 2 as the Baltimore five-piece return to the UK following festival appearances in 2019.

2019 saw the hardcore band performing at Slam Dunk and 2000trees festival, following the release of latest album Time & Space the previous year.

The album had seen them dubbed as one of hardcore’s brightest new talents, with a forward-thinking, youth-driven approach to the genre taking it to a new sonic place.  Time & Space marked the follow up to 2015’s Nonstop Feelings.  It was their first album for Roadrunner Records and named 2018’s Album Of The Year by Kerrang! Featuring in best of the year lists at NME, Rock Sound and Planet Rock.

2020 has seen the band (Brendan Yates on vocals; Franz Lyons on bass/vocals; Brady Ebert on guitars; Pat McCrory on guitars and Daniel Fang on drums) already release a new EP, Share A View.  The three-track release features remixes courtesy of Australian producer and Rinse FM favourite Mall Grab.

In support of Share A View Turnstile hit the UK for a five date tour, opening at Manchester Academy 2.
