Re: What is your tribe?

No tribe for me! I grew up in lower-middle class Connecticut (the US state, basically between NYC and Boston), was kicked out by my super-religious-conservative parents when I was 16 for generally being rebellious (nothing major... just being agnostic and academically inclined, and having a British ...

Re: Frank makes me so emotional.

Guys! I didn't check this thread 'til just now because I figured I'd embarrassed myself and no one would respond. You are all the absolute best, and so is Frank!

Frank makes me so emotional.

Anyone else found that when you listen to Frank, you get all these feelings? Like, you want to call up your old best friend or ex who you haven't spoken to in years and you can't because they live in another country or time zone, so you compose sappy, nostalgic texts and e-mails and you don't know w...

Re: Any chance of additional US dates?

A horrible twist of fate means that I'm moving from Orlando to LA two weeks after you play there, which has left me in fear that you won't be coming through SoCal again when you tour the US in the fall. I'm not delusional enough to think you'll add a show due to one fan's unfortunate life-timing, bu...

You're on the SXSW website!

So it's gone out over the interweb that you're playing at SXSW... is it much longer until we get full US tour dates? The suspense is killing me. Seeing as Frightened Rabbit are playing SXSW as well, may I humbly suggest that you tour together for at least a few dates? I'd sell my soul and travel fro...

Re: Frank is now 31

Frank! Happy Birthday, you fucking legend! I meant to get in on one of those fan-organized birthday gifts going around (I'm sure you'll find what I mean shortly) but time flew by. Next year!

Hoping to see you in the new year!

Re: I am disappeared

Frank didn't 'disappear' himself, he was 'disappeared' by someone else, or something else, an external force over which he has no control, which seems to fit more with the themes in the song anyway... :D Ok, now I'm totally confused, didn't he just wake up, shower and hitch a ride( from Dylan) whic...

Re: how's the believe beer??

Hoppy? But I thought it was a wheat beer, which are kind of the antithesis of hoppy. Wheat beers are usually brewed with very little or no hops. Hmmmmm.

Re: Something to cheer you up if you're in need of a laugh!

This is so fantastic! You are a great friend. I love the cop in Reasons Not to Be an Idiot, haha.

And that French guy Matisse has awesome parents for giving him such a fucking cool name!

Re: Ernie Ball

Is it a lot of EB gear, or just the one t-shirt that Frank is wearing over and over? He has a habit of the latter (Yes, Kenny, much like I do). Haha. Well I've read in several interviews that he always uses Ernie Ball strings, and there's at least two t-shirts as they're different colors. I imagine...

Ernie Ball

Hey Frank! I've noticed in a lot of your recent pictures you're wearing Ernie Ball t-shirts, and I'm pretty sure you use some EB gear as well. Do you have an endorsement/sponsorship type deal with them, or do you just like them?

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey

his spot on the Colbert Report was hilarious. Colbert ran him into the ground, Morrissey looked like he'd chewed a wasp. Oh god, I just about died laughing when I watched that! He looked like he was being tortured. I wonder why he'd even agree to the spot knowing it's Colbert's gig to wind people u...

Re: Favourite Frank Turner Lyric?

I honestly cannot pick at all. To my ear, Frank is foremost a poet and I don't know that I can come up with a song of his that doesn't have some level of lyrical brilliance. Glory Hallelujah has great personal significance to me, and Wanderlust and Balthazar, Impresario both make me swell with emoti...

Re: FEST Last Minute Request

Ugh I had to drive back (2 hours) to crash and get up to be at work at 8am, haha!

The only photo gallery I could find is this at Alternative Press, but I feel like it's missing a ton.

Even though no Balthazar, I definitely "lost it." Dammit, Ballad of Me and My Friends,and..... It was totally worth getting knocked around in the pit while waiting for Frank! You're a brave soul for taking on the pit... last year at Fest I swear to god my ribs nearly got cracked against the barrier...
