Listen to Turnstile’s outrageously fun new single Blackout
Turnstile have shared a new single and video, Blackout – and both absolutely rule.
The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album Glow On, which is due out on August 27 via Roadrunner Records. It comes accompanied by a cool animated video directed by the band, and animated by Alexis Jamet and Logan Triplett.
Speaking with Kerrang! recently about Turnstile’s musical direction in 2021 and whether they’re still considered a ‘hardcore band’, frontman Brendan Yates explained, “I’ve never really liked labels. They tend to be things that divide people. I work to do the opposite. It’s important to emphasise anyone’s uniqueness and what bands [really] are within those genre definitions. It’s never about excluding anyone.
“People spend their lives trying to assemble this system where everything is categorised, and they’re happy because things can easily be defined. There’s a lot to be said for trying to break that down, and to leave room for mystery, learning, and understanding people you didn’t previously understand.”

One version of the Behemoth’s epic In Absentia Dei live album will come with a cardboard church you can burn down, because of course it does.
