Frank Turner, the British folk-punk musician who originally played in post-hardcore band Million Dead, released his fifth studio album, Tape Deck Heart, this Tuesday, April 22nd. Turner has built his career on his own terms, touring endlessly and constantly releasing new music in his eight years as a solo artist. According to A.V. Club, Tape Deck Heart ranges from “barnstorming electric rock” to “harrowing folk” to “Billy Bragg-like pop.” Frank Turner has a busy touring schedule ahead of him this summer, including stops at Bonnaroo and Leeds.
