Inspired by a Clive James poem called Leçons Des Ténèbres, Frank Turner created the album ‘Be More Kind’.
“I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different…I’m exhausted, excited, nervous, confident, relieved and expectant, all at the same time, but most of all I’m happy to share these songs with you all” says 36 year old Turner. Speaking of the poem Turner recites: “I should have been more kind. It is my fate. To find this out, but find it out too late.”
“It devastated me the first time I read it…A lot of older, wiser people tend to say things like that, that the things that come out in the wash at the end of a human life are the way you treated the people around you. In the modern world, that’s a lesson that all of us, myself included could do to learn.”
Kicking off at Birmingham Arena in 2019, Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls will perform a whirlwind 8 dates supported by Arizona group – Jimmy Eat World.
