TURNSTILE have announced a fall headline tour of North America which will see the Baltimore band continuing their wildly successful “TURNSTILE LOVE CONNECTION TOUR” ALONGSIDE special guests and hometown acts Snail Mail and JPEGMAFIA. The upcoming tour kicks off on October 3rd at NYC’s Brooklyn Mirage and includes stops in Asbury Park, Orlando, St. Louis, Louisville, Chicago and more [tour itinerary below].

TURNSTILE have also shared an official music video for “NEW HEART DESIGN,” which is featured on their widely celebrated album GLOW ON. Shot on 16mm film during the sold-out first leg of “THE TURNSTILE LOVE CONNECTION TOUR,” the clip is directed by TURNSTILE’s own Brendan Yates and frequent collaborator Ian Hurdle.

TURNSTILE made their return to network TV last month performing “BLACKOUT” on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon – Watch it HERE. The performance follows TURNSTILE’s recent appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert Series.

Recorded with producer Mike Elizondo and co-produced by TURNSTILE vocalist Brendan Yates, GLOW ON which staked its claim as one of 2021’s top releases, earning “Best of” honors from: NPR, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, Stereogum, SPIN, Vulture, The FADER, The Ringer, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Esquire, FLOOD, Uproxx, Consequence, Paste, Revolver and more. It found TURNSTILE once again charting new ground for hardcore, expanding stylistic boundaries and celebrating new possibilities. 15 tracks devoid of borders, boundaries, or entry obstacles, only abundant imagination, heart, and grooves plucked from all corners of the musical spectrum.

GLOW ON features “MYSTERY”- which reached Top 5 at Alternative Radio – “HOLIDAY,” “NO SURPRISE,” and “T.L.C. (TURNSTILE LOVE CONNECTION),” all four of which appear on TURNSTILE’s TURNSTILE LOVE CONNECTION EP and companion short film. GLOW ON also includes guest features from Blood Orange on “ALIEN LOVE CALL,” and “LONELY DEZIRES,” with additional vocal contributions on “ENDLESS.”

Selected as Stereogum’s Album Of The Week, Senior Editor Tom Breihan wrote “Before GLOW ON, TURNSTILE were already a truly special band, a ray of exploding energy. With this album, they’ve hit dizzy new heights…They’ve made a classic. I can’t even imagine what they’ll do next.” Pitchfork awarded the album ‘Best New Music’ attesting “The Baltimore band’s spectacular fourth record is all groove, riffs, and passion,” with The Recording Academy noting “The through line of all this is a lack of fear—of pushback, of resistance, of excommunication—that defines TURNSTILE.” NPR observed, “TURNSTILE has the ability to lure even the most poptimistic listener with spectacular hooks,” and Vulture hailed GLOW ON as “one of the best rock albums of the year.” Billboard affirmed “Ready or not, TURNSTILE is breaking through,” with FLOOD hailing the album as “An unforgettable magnum Opus.”

Comprised of Brendan Yates (Vocals), Franz Lyons (Bass/Vocals), Brady Ebert (Guitars), Pat McCrory (Guitars), and Daniel Fang (Drums), TURNSTILE’s brand of youth-minded, youth-driven hardcore punk is intent on breaking down barriers, sonically and ideologically.
