‘GLOW ON’ was released in August 2021. In a five-star review, NME called it “the sound of rock music stretched to its thrilling limits”.

Since then, the band played a chaotic set at Glastonbury 2022 and appeared on the cover of NME.

In the cover feature, Yates spoke of the band’s crossover appeal, saying: “That’s always a great feeling. The ability to reach whoever might be looking for our music, and seeing that happen, is always an amazing feeling. Since we’ve been able to play live again, the opportunities we’ve been blessed with to play for so many new people…

“I think playing music, no matter who you ask, it’s always an exciting opportunity, especially to never feel like you’re doing the same thing [and that] you’re always constantly growing. That doesn’t necessarily mean the size [of a crowd], but more so growing as far as challenging yourself, putting yourself in new scenarios and taking your opportunities to grow moving forward.”

Next year, prior to the new European shows, Turnstile will tour with the recently-reunited Blink-182, playing a host of North American tour dates.
