15th March | Trinity
Having released their third album The Free Life on Friday 9th, and launching their tour on Sunday 11th in Newcastle, Bristol’s Turbowolf are set for their sold-out homecoming show at the Trinity Centre this Thursday 15th before heading out to Europe. This is a rearranged location, after the demise of the Bierkeller. If it is anything like their last gig in Bristol, back in 2015 at the Marble Factory, or their historic closing gig of the legendary Croft before it shut for good, it’s sure to be riotous fun.
Following on from 2011’s self-titled piece and 2015’s Two Hands, the latest album is fully loaded with the crunchy guitar-driven psych-rock and punk they’re celebrated for, and is jam-packed with guest appearances. No stranger to high-octane rock, Mike Kerr of Royal Blood steps in on ‘Domino’, Death from Above’s Sebastien Grainger appears on ‘Cheap Magic’, and Joe Talbot from Bristol brothers-in-arms, Idles growls a haunting refrain at the end of second track ‘Capital X’.
Turbowolf will be joined by their tour support, London metal three-piece Puppy, who it turns out, despite their more diminutive-sounding name, howl just as hard as the wolves themselves.
