Oh Brother EP -- Speculation

Post by Granty2k12 » Thu Feb 20, 2014 6:39 am

Hey, all!

I was just wondering if anyone else thinks Frank may release a new EP relatively soon? I've heard from the guys on the Frank Turner Army facebook page and from the setlist.fm for the Winchester solo show (I was very nearly there - after seeing the setlist I'm really, really sad I couldn't make it) that Frank has a new song lined up for us. Love 40 Down, I believe it's called. I respect that Frank may not want people to hear the song until it's finished - which is obviously his prerogative and I'm fine with that - but it would seem kinda odd that he'd want this song to stay as just a live version until the next album which I don't believe will be out until next year (at the VERY earliest the back end of this year, but I kinda hope we'll have to wait until 2015 or even 2016). So, seeing as how this 'feels' very similar to Sweet Albion Blues and the Polaroid Picture EP... does anyone suspect we may have an Oh Brother EP lined up sometimes in the future?

Also, I JUST woke up so sorry for anything that might not make sense :)

He just released an EP. I would say we're done until the next album cycle.

I get the impression Frank has always got a couple of new songs on the go,(I first saw Polaroid Picture live in 2011).

There has been at least 4 releases from TDH. That's enough. A lot of EKMB songs got played live ages before they were released.

I guess playing songs live is a good way of working on them and getting practice playing them, ready to record.

What about a Record Store Day release in the mould of Recovery last year or I Still Believe the year before, using a new track? Frank's a pretty big supporter of RSD, so it makes sense (to me, anyway!).

I am fairly certain there is no RSD release from Frank this year.

This is true. It is really very good indeed.

I very much want a personal copy like yours which would say 'pigeons on toast'.
