Pre-orders are now available at: https://www.dodgeballrecords.com/shop/.
Stream a track titled "Irish Name" now on Brooklynvegan: http://www.brooklynvegan.com/chicago-punks-turnspit-releasing-debut-lp-stream-irish-name/.
The band has performed at Riot Fest, and has played shows with the likes of Alkaline Trio, Beach Slang, Flatfoot 56 and many others.
A music video for the deeply personal track "Breath Taking" recently premiered on Riotfest's website.
Guitarist/vocalist Jason Swearingen tells Riotfest, "A few years back, I finally started going to therapy. It helped me begin to get a handle on my mental health, and it encouraged me to seriously reevaluate, while coming to terms with a handful of things. One of the most difficult things I’ve struggled with is how my religious upbringing and obsessive-compulsive disorder kept me from exploring a lot of who I really am.
Over the past few years, I’ve come out as pansexual, and have begun to explore gender in ways I always felt I couldn’t before. I’ve been learning to do things that make me happy, rather than let guilt control my life. A lot of my songs on this record, “Breath Taking” included, deal with how it’s easier to control a people who are kept miserable; and how revolutionary an act it can be to simply do what makes you happy — in a positive way — in the face of others telling you that happiness is shameful.”
Turnspit will be playing a hometown record release show at GMan Tavern on February 17 and a special acoustic set at Chicago's Blue Island Beer Company on March 2. Additional shows will be announced soon.
