Frank Turner has announced that he will release ‘Try This At Home’, the fourth single from his latest album ‘Poetry Of The Deed’, on 2 Aug. By then, he will have played a lot of gigs around the world, including two in the UK with Green Day.

But let’s get back to this single. Turner hasn’t yet recorded a b-side for it, and he can’t be bothered to write one. As a result, he’s asking fans to submit songs for him to record. Two songs will be selected, one from the UK and one from the US. UK fans should head to for more details.
