Frank Turner - New Single – 'If Ever I Stray'

Hot on the heels of his Main Stage appearance at Reading and Leeds Festival this August, Frank Turner will release his rabble rousing anthem, ‘If Ever I Stray’ on 29th August through Xtra Mile Recordings.

Frank Turner - If Ever I Stray

As his career soars further to the stars this is a wonderful ode to his friends and loved ones for the support they continue to show him on this incredible journey.

Frank says: “If Ever I Stray was one of the last songs written for the album and it came together really fast, as the best songs do; it's a song about realising that you're not an island, and that you should be grateful for the help you get in life.”

And with the instantly catchy refrain; “But if ever I stray from the path I follow. Take me down to the English Channel . Throw me in where the water is shallow, and drag me on back to shore” believe us when we say you’ll be singing this joyfully all summer long.

‘If Ever I Stray’ – backed by brand new song ‘Sailor’s Boots’ - is the second single to be lifted from the chart busting album ‘England Keep My Bones’ which came out in June of this year. Entering the official midweek album charts at Number 6, finishing up at Number 12 on the Sunday, it has been applauded by all sections of the press garnering 4/5 in Q, 4/5 in Kerrang!, 8/10 in NME and 9/10 in Rocksound to name a few and was Zane Lowe’s Album of the Week on Radio 1, XFM’s Album of the Week and Album of the Day on 6Music.

After a truck load of festival appearances this summer that include Cambridge Folk Festival, Port Eliot, Kendal Calling, Mannifest and a host of European festivals, and his largest full band tour in USA in the Autumn (Bowery in New York already sold out – extra date added) Frank Turner will return to the UK to play a huge UK tour to take place this winter. Aside from the festivals this will be the first time fans can see the full-band show since their sold out O2 Academy Brixton gig in December 2010.

Full dates are:

22 Bournemouth O2 Academy
23 Newport , Newport Centre
24 Birmingham O2 Academy
25 Glasgow Barrowlands
26 Manchester O2 Apollo
