Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls Announce Concert at The ELM with Bridge City Sinners and Bedouin Soundclash

English folk-punk artist Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls will perform at The ELM on Friday, August 30, 2024. They’ll be supported by rowdy neo-folk band Bridge City Sinners and indie rock and reggae band Bedouin Soundclash.

Frank Turner, who began his prolific career with the post-hardcore band Million Dead in 2000, went solo around 2005 and soon after recruited his backing band, The Sleeping Souls. Known for hits like “Recovery,” “Photosynthesis,” and “I Still Believe,” Turner’s extensive discography showcases his evolving artistry. His latest album, Undefeated, released earlier this year, has been praised by Kerrang!, stating, “On his 10th full-length, Frank Turner demonstrates that even after almost two decades of doing this, he’s still got plenty more to give…”

Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Bridge City Sinners bring a gothic twist to the genre, blending traditional folk with punk rock’s rebellious spirit as heard on tracks like “Devil Like You” and “Kreacher.”

Originating from Toronto, Canada, Bedouin Soundclash’s laid back sound can be heard on songs such as “Brutal Hearts” and “When the Night Feels My Song.

About Frank Turner

Crash bang wallop: Frank Turner has better reason than most to kickstart the new year with a euphoric punk-rock clatter. And that’s exactly what he did with brilliantly contrary and playfully snotty new track No Thank You For The Music, released on his 42nd birthday on 28th December. “It’s about the idea that it’s good to remind yourself every now and again that being part of underground culture means, among other things, being unpopular,” he explains cheerfully.

So, 2024 is a leap year. That means that this touring musicians’ touring musician – a road warrior who’s been out there, playing somewhere, since 1998 and who, after starting gigging when he was 16, didn’t go home for a decade – has one extra day to play with, and play on. And you know he’ll use it.

Mind you: Turner could have done with that calendrical wiggle-room when he was touring his last album, given that he celebrated 2022’s FTHC with an American jaunt that was epic even by his Stakhanovite standards: he and his band The Sleeping Souls did 50 states in 50 days.

“The whole touring cycle for FTHC had a feeling of reinvigoration. A sense of coming out from under, both in terms of the pandemic and a rediscovery of the sense that what I do can be – or in fact should be – fun,” he says now of a long run lent wings by the Number One success of an album that joyously blasted a hardcore uproar (the clue was in the acronym).

Which brings us to the other reasons why 2024 is Turner’s time. He’s releasing his 10th album. It’s a record he’s, as usual, written himself – but, for the first time in a kaleidoscopic career, he’s produced himself. Not only that, he’s recorded it in his new home studio in he and his wife’s home on Mersea Island, Essex. And, finally, crucially, going back to his roots, he’s releasing it as a fully independent artist.
