@QuiffProFro: New Frank Turner album apparently contains an a capella song, Franz Nikolai (ex-Hold Steady), and a folkier sound than the last. Excellent!

@HamptonCaught: Saw Frank Turner last year on a Friday afternoon at Glasto and hope to see him there again this year. Support the tour – the man deserves it
