Singer-songwriter Frank Turner has had an extraordinary two-years in his native England. Heralded as "The people's prince of punk poetry" by the NME, he has amassed a huge and adoring fan base, breakthrough radio hits and a sold out headlining show at Wembley Arena (documented in a thrilling new DVD). It all reached a crescendo with a historic performance at the biggest show on earth, the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics. In the states Turner remains, for the time being, an emerging star on the verge of a breakthrough similar to those experienced by like artists The Gaslight Anthem and Dropkick Murphys. After opening for Social Distortion, The Offspring along with the before mentioned Dropkicks and Gaslight Anthem as well as completing a triumphant 2012 headline tour, word of Turner is spreading across the US. To help the process along, we would like to offer a special introduction to the man and his music. Last Minutes and Lost Evenings delivers 15 songs, a riveting mix of standards and rarities hand-picked by Turner to get American fans off on the right foot. Bundled with a full DVD of his groundbreaking Wembley show – almost two hours of music, with plenty of rousing sing-alongs and folk-punk fury from Frank’s amazing band The Sleeping Souls – Last Minutes and Lost Evenings is a record longtime fans will cherish. For stateside fans just hearing of Frank Turner, it’s an ideal introduction.
