Turnstile Continue Their TV Takeover With ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ Mini-Set
Flourishing Baltimore alterna-punk rockers Turnstile gave Jimmy Kimmel Live! a heaping helping of their slam-dance-inducing sonic excitement on Wednesday (March 2).
For the TV talk show, the band performed their yearning but spunky "Mystery," which broadcast over the air Wednesday night. They also played a mini-set off-air comprising the songs "Blackout, "Don't Play" and "Holiday." All come from their latest album, last year's GLOW ON and were later shared on Kimmel's YouTube page.
Watch the videos down toward the bottom of this post.
Last December, Turnstile made their late-night TV debut on Seth Meyers. The group is now amid leading The Turnstile Love Connection Tour across North America with support from Citizen and Ceremony. It will pick back up in the states next month.
Around the time of GLOW ON's release, Turnstile vocalist Brendan Yates (pictured above) spoke to The Fader about the group's knack for mixing unusual-for-punk sounds in with their hardcore.
"Putting them all together automatically creates a roller coaster of ups and downs and different things," Yates explained, "which I think is always something that we try to create when making music."
He continued, "Feeling and experiencing music or just feeling things as a person, there's always more dimensions to it than just a one-dimensional thing. I think it's something that's always intended to make sure that there's those dynamics and those things that we're trying to get across are all included in there and can be felt as a bigger picture thing."
Loudwire chose GLOW ON as the third best rock and metal album of 2021. "Holiday," initially issued on the Turnstile Love Connection EP, was one of Loudwire's best 2021 rock songs.
