Over the last few years, the Baltimore band Turnstile have risen to the top of the word-of-mouth-driven DIY hardcore scene, packing shows everywhere and developing their own melodic, groove-driven sound. And now they’ve made a big leap. Later this week, Turnstile will release Time & Space, their first album for the big indie Roadrunner Records. For the occasion, they’ve cleaned up and expanded their sound, bringing bigger and more polished hooks than they’ve ever had before. They’ve also brought in outside collaborators, like Diplo, who adds additional production to “Right To Be,” or Sheer Mag’s Tina Halladay, who sings backup on “Moon.” We’ve already posted “Moon,” as well as the early tracks “Real Thing,” “Generator,” and “I Don’t Wanna Be Blind.” And right now, you can stream the entire album at NPR.
Time & Space is out 2/23 on Roadrunner.
