Frank Turner returns with guest-filled tribute to his roots 

It’s with great pleasure that we announce the return of another one of our favorite artists, Britain’s brainy folk-punker Frank Turner, who’s almost single-handedly keeping the Billy Bragg flame alive in this decade.

Fresh from his recent NME nomination for Best Solo Artist, the politically minded chap will be issuing “England Keep My Bones” — the follow-up to his breakthrough “Poetry Of The Deed” set — via Epitaph on June 7.

The album features a great roster of guest stars, like The Unbelievable Truth’s Andy Yorke, ex-Hold Steady keyboardist Franz Nicolay, and folk singers Emily Barker and Chris T-T.

Intended as a tribute to his homeland and working-class UK roots, Turner’s acoustic-based set was tracked at Britain’s Church Studios, and even boasts a tradition English-folk a cappella number.

And best of all? He’ll be previewing its singalongs in San Francisco, at a May 7 gig at Bottom of the Hill.
