“Glow On” received near universal praise and landed on lists of the best albums of 2021 from places including Pitchfork, BrooklynVegan and Rolling Stone.
Critics noted how the record incorporated various other music styles and pushed the hardcore genre. They’ve compared vocalist Brendan Yates to ’90s alternative rock icons Zack de la Rocha from Rage Against the Machine and Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction.
The band played a sold-out record release show at Baltimore Soundstage. hate5six, the project of Sunny Singh, who records and uploads punk and hardcore shows from across the United States, released a concert film of the show. Watch it here.
Following the release of the album, Turnstile performed on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Turnstile is wrapping up a fall tour featuring Snail Mail, the indie rock project of Ellicott City native Lindsey Jordan, and JPEGMAFIA, the rapper and producer who at one point lived and worked in Baltimore.
The 65th Annual Grammy Awards are set to held at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Feb. 5, 2023.
