From Million Dead to folk breakthrough artist...
Frank Turner

Frank Turner achieved his success the old fashioned way.

Leaving behind hardcore types Million Dead, the singer picked up his acoustic and hit the road. Touring relentlessly, the songwriter built up a devoted fanbase which seems to grow with each passing day.

Penning a book deal, Frank Turner is now set to reflect on his life on the road. Piecing together his tour memoirs, the tome is due to arrive via Headline in Spring 2015 and aims to be the comprehensive tale of Turner's concert history.

Playing some 1584 shows to date, highlights include a date at Wembley Arena and a part in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics.

Frank Turner said: "It took some persuading for me to think about writing a book of any kind, but in the end I realised that I have spent a pretty unusual amount of time touring hard in the last few years, and I have a fair few stories to tell, and maybe even a tiny smidgen of wisdom to impart to people starting out on the same path. Plus I come from a family of yarn-spinners, and I can run my mouth, so it makes sense."

Frank Turner is set to publish his tour memoirs via Headline in Spring 2015.
