Frank Turner Wants You B-Side Him.

Care to meet me half-way? Photo by danh_photos

British folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner is putting his mouth where his vinyl is.  The B-Side of his latest Epitaph Records single, “Try This At Home”, is up for grabs for some lucky unknown band.  “Try This…” is a rallying cry for a new generation to pick up instruments and tell their own stories, so this contest is a nice extension of that.  Details here.

Good luck to all the artists who enter, and an inside tip – Frank loves ABBA (seriously), so if you can Swede up your entry you just might win.

Frank just finished touring in China (what?) and apparently has no plans of slowing down.  Full world hopping tour dates below.
