Frank Turner returns to the Roadmender next week where he’ll preview songs which will form part of his new album.

Turner, who headlined the venue in 2011, has returned to his ‘day job’ playing with The Sleeping Souls after recording and releasing the Mongol Horde album earlier this year.

The singer-songwriter is preparing material for his sixth studio album which will follow last year’s LP Tape Deck Heart.

Since disbanding his former band, Million Dead, Turner has played across the world, headlining Wembley Arena and the O2 Arena in London. He also performed at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London in 2012.

Earlier this year he appeared on – and won – celebrity mastermind, choosing Iron Maiden as his specialist subject.

Turner is also in the process of writing a book, which will chart his first few years as a solo act and him playing with his band The Sleeping Souls.

Turner headlines the Roadmender in Northampton on Thursday, September 18.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £22.50 before booking fees.
