Live: Frank Turner

Frank Turner opened up for The Offspring at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville New jersey. Actually, he’s supporting them for the east coast portion of their tour and from the sounds of his tour diary, it’s been a great time. First, Starland Ballroom is situated in the middle of nowhere.

Love, Ire & Song is more diverse than his debut album, with tracks ranging from the beautiful piano ballad ‘Jet Lag’, to the sing-along ‘Photosynthesis’ and the rocker ‘Imperfect Tense’.
