Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls are heading to Norwich this weekend as the folk/punk singer-songwriter continues his rearranged The Never Ending Tour Of Everywhere.
Turner will play the UEA on Saturday, October 1. Having postponed the original January date due to covid, it means fans have now had the chance to hear tracks from the subsequently-released FTHC album ahead of this show.
FTHC was launched earlier this year to critical and commercial acclaim, reaching top spot in the charts.
The record – which covers a number of sensitive social issues – includes contributions from members of Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Death Cab For Cutie, Guided By Voices and Biffy Clyro, as well as Jason Isbell.
The former Million Dead frontman will also be playing to a capacity crowd at Cambridge Junction on Friday, September 30.
Support on both dates comes from Pet Needs and Truckstop Honeymoon.
Pet Needs recently released their second album, Primetime Entertainment, which was produced by Turner. They also recently supported Turner on his 50 States In 50 Dates tour in the US.
Pet Needs will enjoy their own headlining tour towards the end of the year, which will include a sold-out homecoming gig at Colchester Arts Centre.
The evening will be opened by Truckstop Honeymoon, who comprise Louisiana husband-and-wife duo Mike and Katie West. They’ve been described as bluegrass meets punk-rock meets soul.
