Frank Turner is very pleased to announce details of his forthcoming seventh studio album.
Be More Kind will be released on May 4th through Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records. Months after the release of Songbook, a career-spanning retrospective which also saw reworked versions of tracks from across the past decade, Be More Kind represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for the 36-year-old. It’s a record that combines universal anthems with raw emotion and the political and the personal, with the intricate folk and punk roar trademarks of Turner’s sound imbued with new, bold experimental shades.
Frank has also released the first track from the album, ‘1933‘, a clattering, state-of-the-nation anthem which you can Check out here.

THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS
It was about time the Canadian frat bros came back to our shores, ey? Seaway came back over to fill out Bristol’s exchange with angstry teens ready for a bit of finger pointing.
The night opened up with Lizzy Farrall, I hadn’t checked her out before so didn’t know what to expect and went in with an open mind. She played an acoustic set with 2 guitars and I wasn’t left overly impressed, as it felt a little out of place supporting an rambunctious pop-punk band. I did have a listen afterwards and enjoyed the overall sound, however it felt like she was on the bill due to a shared label.
Shortly afterwards Woes played through an energetic set, perhaps harnessing some of that energy that came with their signing to UNFD. It’s easy to see the influence their work with producer Seb Barlow has had on their overall sound, it certainly fits in with the current Neck Deep style of sound that there seems to be an abundance of.
Headliners of the night Seaway kicked off their first night of tour with blistering energy and everything you’d come to expect from a worldwide touring pop-band. The set featured songs from new album ‘Vacation’, but with plenty from ‘Colour Blind’. There were a few throwbacks in the form of ‘Shy Guys’ and hit ‘Sabrina The Teenage Bitch’.
The new songs went down a storm, with plenty of singable anthems for the crowd to get rowdy behind.
Leeds-based six-piece, Team Picture have today shared their new single, ‘(I Have a) Little Secret’ which is released through their own Big Dumb Music label – you can listen to the single here.
‘(I Have a) Little Secret’ progresses from the band’s previous releases – whilst maintaining their knack for penning impressive hooks and pursuing sonic experimentation, the band also turn their head to a sea of new influences and sounds. The freshly attuned pop sensibility etched throughout ‘(I Have a) Little Secret’ pays homage to the likes of The Cure, synth-wave revivalists, Black Marble and Lower Dens as new synthetic textures propel the band’s more orthodox vibrant soundscapes.
Since forming in 2016, Team Picture have earned praise at BBC Introducing and secured multiple spins at 6Music with support from Huw Stephens, Tom Robinson and Steve Lamacq, as well as ticking off support slots with the likes of Parquet Courts, Psychic Ills, The Orielles and Ulrika Spacek. In addition, the band have performed at the likes of Bluedot Festival (along with Warpaint and the Pixies), the Wire-curated Drill Festival and Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival, as well as selling out their own curated ‘Du The Katman’ night at Leeds’ Hyde Park Book Club.
A full UK headline tour along with festival dates are to be announced shortly, so keep your eyes peeled!!
