Location: Hippodrome

Just after the week of his new album release, Frank Turner returns to Kingston. To celebrate the release of his highly anticipated seventh studio album Be More Kind, Frank is coming back to New Slang for a release show that'll also mark his 21st Banquet show. A folk/punk-rock legend in his own right with a huge range of anthemic songwriting at his disposal, his live shows are never one to miss.

"'Somewhere in the record, there’s a convergence of the ideas of personal and political, which is a central theme of the album,' Turner says. One of the driving themes of the album is empathy, even for your enemy. “You should at least be able to inhabit the mental universe of the people you disagree with. If you can’t do that, then how do you communicate with people other than through force of arms, which is something we all agree is a bad idea.” Behind some of the best songs of Turner’s career is the idea that the human race needs to find better ways of disagreeing than screaming each other down."
