Turnstile released one of the absolute standout albums of the year, 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 latest of those moments came overnight when the band performed Mystery and T.L.C (Turnstile Love Connection) on the US cable TV show Late Night With Seth Meyers. The Baltimore band brought a burst of positive energy and urgency to the late-night setting in their debut TV outing.

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.
Turnstile's appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers is the latest example of hardcore punk infiltrating the mainstream, with Jesus Piece drummer Luis Aponte set to perform on Saturday Night Live with Charli XCX tomorrow night, the promise for greater exposure for the genre will be further amplified and at Maniacs we think that's great.
