Turnstile Announce U.S. Tour, Release “I Don’t Wanna Be Blind”

Baltimore’s excellent hardcore outfit Turnstile have released a new single today, “I Don’t Wanna Be Blind,” off of their forthcoming album Time & Space, which comes out on February 23. The band has already shared “Generator,” “Real Thing,” and “Moon,” featuring Sheer Mag, from the new record.

“I Don’t Wanna Be Blind” opens with a sparse, sludgy bassline before launching into an onslaught of crunchy riffs, which culminate as frontman Brendan Yates’s vocals grow from an emo whine to a powerful roar. The single’s accompanying video features a shining pendulum on a string, with a rhythm as hypnotic as the track’s headbang-worthy chord progression. Listen to “I Don’t Wanna Be Blind” below.

The band has also announced a U.S. tour in support of their upcoming album, with support from Touché Amoré, Culture Abuse, and Razor Bumps. The tour kicks off on April 5 with an record release show in Washington, D.C., and continues throughout April and into early May. View a full list of tour dates below.
