Baltimore punks Turnstile have released a new song, ‘Fly Again’.
Despite being from my home state, I don’t really have any stories from Turnstile, other than the fact that they played The Black Cat in DC back in 2017 with another awesome band, Drug Church, supporting The Story So Far. You could literally hear them all the way down U Street. I think I might have been seeing The Band Camino at DC9. Maybe it was on a date. Probably not.
It’s all a blur, but the incredible decibel level radiating out of The Black Cat stuck with me. It’s a good way to remember a band like Turnstile.
“I think every recording process is such a learning experience, and always [leads to] so much growth,” lead singer Brendan Yates explained. “Once we met [Mike Elizondo, producer] and saw his excitement to do the album, and his willingness to let us do what we wanted, it seemed like it was a really cool opportunity.”
“It was such a learning process – you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit, and I think that’s when the best stuff happens. With every record we’ve done, we’ve usually worked with someone that we [previously] haven’t, and we wanted to do the same thing here. We took the chance, and it ended up being incredible.”
‘Fly Again’ is set to be featured on the band’s upcoming LP Glow On, which we’ve already gotten numerous tastes of. Turnstile have been busy in 2021, and it’s likely to pay off with another monster album.
