FRANK TURNER has released an intimate new documentary charting his incredible personal journey as the frontman of seminal UK punk group Million Dead to his rise as a magnetic solo artist with a fervent worldwide following. Directed by Gregory Nolan, and told in Frank’s own words, The Way I Tend To Be offers fans an insight into the formative years of one of the UK’s leading musicians. The documentary premiered on VEVO and can be viewed HERE.
Amidst previously unseen footage, Frank explains his beginnings from his first hardcore band Kneejerk, to fronting punk iconoclasts Million Dead, to critically acclaimed solo recording artist headlining a sold-out Wembley Arena show with performances on the main stage at Reading and Leeds festivals. Turner also performed at the Opening Ceremony at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
