Be More Kind

Frank Turner releases the title track from his forthcoming seventh studio album Be More Kind available on May 4th via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor UK /Interscope Records. Listen to “Be More Kind” HERE. The album is available for pre-order HEREand those who pre-order will receive instant downloads of “Be More Kind” as well as the previously released tracks “1933” and “There She Is” from the 2017 release Songbook.

Of the track, Turner says, “‘Be More Kind’, the song, is at the heart of the album, both lyrically and musically; when I finished it, I could see the rest of the album coming back together around it.”
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. Be More Kind is produced by Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, formerly of psychedelic-rock Texans White Denim, and Florence And The Machine and Halsey collaborator Charlie Hugall. “I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different,” says Turner.

The Be More Kind World Tour will head to North America on April 5, with its first leg playing to over 200,000 people across the UK, the USA, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, taking them through to Christmas. Two Boston shows – July 1 and 2 – were added today. Turner promises that 2019 will include visits to some “slightly more weird and wonderful places.”

BERMUDA TRIANGLE ANNOUNCES SERIES OF SOUTHERN U.S. SHOWS

On the heels of their debut performance in Nashville, Bermuda Triangle has announced a series of Southern shows. The trio – comprising Brittany Howard, Becca Mancari and Jesse Lafser – will kick off the jaunt on October 4 at Terminal West in Atlanta. Special guests Thelma and the Sleaze will support on the first two dates and Music Band will open at the other three shows. See below for itinerary.Tickets go on sale today at noon ET. For ticket information, visit https://www.facebook.com/BermudaTriangleBand.

Today, NPR Music premiered “Rosey,” Bermuda Triangle’s debut song. “Rosey,” which features Lafser on lead vocals, is now up for streaming HERE.

In this featureNPR neatly summed up the individual accomplishments of the band mates: “Brittany A. Howard, the main rule-breaker in Americana music’s most exciting band of this century, the Alabama Shakes…[joins forces] with two of the most interesting voices currently making Nashville home. Hailing from St. Louis, Lafser has released two albums of lonesome tunes redolent of Jimmie Rodgers and Patsy Cline. Mancari…is one of the subtlest songwriters and bandleaders to hit the scene in a while, building intense moods in her memorable live sets.”

Covering Bermuda Triangle’s debut performance, Rolling Stone said the trio’s chemistry “was clear from the first-applause-silencing note” and went on to observe, “The band featured Howard switching between plucking out gorgeous, nimble-fingered nylon-string guitar solos and holding down the low end on upright bass…with Mancari and Lafser trading off on banjo and acoustic guitar, accompanied by subtle beats from a drum machine on a pitch-perfect harmony-heavy set of blithe and breezy heartfelt folk tunes that filled the sweltering room with chill vibes.” 

The artists have also been busy with their individual endeavors. Becca Mancari’s debut album, Good Woman, is set for release on October 6Jesse Lafser’sfollow-up to 2015’s Raised On the Plains is due out in early 2018. Brittany Howard recently wrapped a series of headline and festival dates with Alabama Shakes.

SOUTHERN BLOOD ARRIVES ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH

(New York, NY) Rounder Records and select Harley-Davison locations are uniting for “THE MIDNIGHT RIDER’S RALLY,” a very special event commemorating the final album from the legendary Gregg Allman. SOUTHERN BLOOD arrives everywhere on Friday, September 8th.

SOUTHERN BLOOD is available for pre-order now at digital music retailers and the Gregg Allman Official Store. A wide array of limited editions and special bundles are on offer, including digital download, Standard and Deluxe CD/DVD, and limited edition heavyweight vinyl and vinyl test presses.

SOUTHERN BLOOD EXCLUSIVE PRE-ORDER BUNDLES AVAILABLE HERE

SOUTHERN BLOOD includes the new original song, “My Only True Friend,” written by Allman with Gregg Allman Band guitarist/musical director Scott Sharrard. The track – available now at all digital music retailers and streaming services – premiered earlier this summer exclusively via NPR Music, which raved, “From its stately introduction through a wrenching guitar solo at the close, the track exudes a surefooted classic-rock grandeur we don’t hear much anymore. Yet Allman keeps it on an intimate scale…Allman sings like he’s confiding to a friend, distilling hours of stock-taking and introspection. He’s plainspoken, like always, and his casual air adds disarming resonance to what is clearly a farewell statement.” “My Only True Friend” is joined by a powerfully moving official video, streaming now at Gregg Allman’s official YouTube channel after its exclusive premiere via Relix.

WATCH MY ONLY TRUE FRIEND

“THE MIDNIGHT RIDER’S RALLY” will take place Friday, September 8th at select Harley-Davidson locations across North America.
