Somewhere in between his performances at this year's Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo and his just wrapped tour with Social Distortion the critically acclaimed British singer-songwriter Frank Turner found time to record the five song Rock & Roll EP, which is scheduled for release on December 7, just in time for the holidays.
The Rock & Roll EP begins with lead track, and astoundingly popular live anthem, 'I Still Believe'. It's a call to arms for those who are enraptured by the simplicity and power of "guitar and drums and desperate poetry". The riotous gang of audience voices shouting the title back at Frank, spliced into the EP having been recorded from a summer of teeming festival crowds, tells you all you need to know about this soon-to-be signature song.
All recorded at The Church Studios in Crouch End in a mere three days, and produced by Tristan Ivemy who mixed Frank's second album Love Ire & Song, the four remaining songs 'Pass It Along', 'To Absent Friends', 'Rock & Roll Romance' and 'The Next Round' will remain exclusive to this release. 'I Still Believe' will appear on next year's anticipated album with Frank set to begin recording in January.
The prolific folk singer's journey continues after a month long US jaunt with labelmates Social Distortion as Frank returns to the UK for December tour before entering the studio in January to record his follow up to 2009's Poetry of the Deed.
