Baltimore hardcore punk's Turnstile will continue their seemingly endless ascent this week when they play Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The band released one of the absolute standout albums of the year, one of our 20 best albums of 2021, Glow On via Roadrunner Records in August. A forward-thinking, hyperactive blast of creative energy and expressionism, Glow On cemented the band as THE band to watch in modern hardcore, with their creative choice to leave no stone unturned in their quest to achieve their kaleidoscopic, genre-hopping intent, finding favour not just in our corner of the world, but outside of it as well, resulting in moments of genuine mainstream crossover.
The performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! follows a previous TV appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers and comes after a big few days in the Turnstile camp which saw them drop a new video for Underwater Boi and have their socials blow up when pop superstar Demi Lovato posted a photo of themself with Turnstile backstage at Turnstile's LA show.
You can watch the clip and see Lovato's post below.
The video for Underwater Boi was directed and edited by the band’s own drummer Daniel Fang and was captured in Second Life, the MMORPG (massively-multiplayer online role-playing game).
Speaking to Maniacs earlier this year, vocalist Brendan Yates explained that the creative expressionism found on Glow On is a representation of where the band is at now.
"The cool thing about being in a band or making music is that every record you make, or every song you put out, is a reflection of where you are at that given point in time. I think this record is defining where I’m at right now. Turnstile is this constantly changing and growing thing, so I’m very excited about what we’ve been able to put together as a reflection of where we are at right now."
The band took an immersive approach to the rollout, including making a short film for the pre-emptive EP release Turnstile Love Connection.
