Frank Turner Announces New Single 'Wessex Boy' & Wembley Arena Headline Show April 2012

Rounding off an exceptional year that has included headlining festivals, Main Stage sets at Reading and Leeds and a chart bothering album, Frank Turner will release his new single 'Wessex Boy' on 28th November through Xtra Mile Recordings. Frank Turner has also confirmed his biggest headline show to date at London's Wembley Arena for April 2012.

The third single to be lifted from the Top 12 album 'England Keep My Bones' it encapsulates the album's feeling of nostalgia, reminiscing about home towns and re-visiting cosy childhood memories after a long time away. And in some uncanny cosmic timing it provides the perfect soundtrack as the winter nights draw in and attention is turned to going home for Christmas.

It also echoes Frank's return to these shores after months of touring North America and Europe. He's back for his huge UK headline tour with his band The Sleeping Souls. Three of the six dates are now completely sold out with the others selling fast.
