Fantastic competition to record b-side on Frank Turner’s next single

Frank Turner releases the fourth single from his Top 40 album Poetry of the Deed on August 2nd, the track Try This At Home, is a raucous call to arms. Embodying the true spirit of punk rock – it is all about the DIY ethos that drives the punk scene and encourages anyone and everyone to pick up a guitar, jot down some words, and just give it go.

With this spirit in mind, Frank Turner is offering the chance for a new, unsigned act to record a B side for the single.

In a fantastic, one-off competition Frank, together with labels Xtra Mile Recordings (UK) and Epitaph Records (rest of the world) is asking for new and original music to be sent to him for consideration for the b-side. There will be two winners chosen by Frank together with Kerrang! in the UK and Alternative Press in the USA – with both winning tracks included as the B-Sides of a limited edition coloured vinyl – 1000 copies each for the UK and the rest of the world.
