Celebrated singer-songwriter Frank Turner is set to bring his rousing brand of literary folk punk to fans across North America in 2012. The charismatic young British troubadour will be performing with his band the Sleeping Souls in support of his acclaimed new album England Keep My Bones. Turner will first be joining Southern California rock ‘n’ roll rebels Social Distortion for a series of West Coast dates, before heading out with Celtic rock sensations The Dropkick Murphys. Critical Acclaim for Frank Turner:  “The people’s prince of punk poetry” – NME  “Blends punk-inspired beats with touching homages to his homeland, and finds him setting blunt poetry to brilliantly catchy melodies.” - NPR  “England Keep My Bones is the perfect complement to the perfect pint, a salve for anyone who didn’t grow up to become an astronaut or a Nobel laureate.

Epitaph Records is proud to announce the signing of Los Angeles based heavy melodic hardcore band The Ghost Inside. Formed in 2007, the band has built a following with two previous records, Fury And The Fallen Ones and Returners, as well as their riveting live performances touring with bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, Parkway Drive and The Devil Wears Prada.  The Ghost Inside’s powerful and affecting sound merges insightful and introspective lyrics with charging drums, lightning fast riffs and devastating breakdowns. The group is currently working on their yet untitled Epitaph debut with Jeremy Mckinnon (of A Day To Remember) producing.   “Signing to Epitaph is a dream come true for me,” singer Jonathan Vigil says. “The label is home to some of my all time favorite bands. Epitaph continues to be successful while maintaining the integrity of an independent label. I really look forward to the future of The Ghost Inside and Epitaph. There’s honestly no other place I’d want to call home. “  The Ghost Inside will be taking their energetic live show on the road when they tour North America.  1/23/2012	Mojoes Rock House	Joliet	IL 1/24/2012	Emerson Theatre	Indianapolis	IN 1/26/2012	Newport Music Hall	Columbus	OH 1/27/2012	The Omni	Toledo	OH 1/28/2012	The Intersection	Grand Rapids	MI 1/29/2012	The Rave II (Downstairs)	Milwaukee	WI 1/30/2012	The Castle Theatre	Bloomington	IL 1/31/2012	Peoples Court	Des Moines	IA 2/1/2012	Sokol	Omaha	NE 2/2/2012	Aggie Theater	Ft.

Rising punk rock band The Menzingers create a rousing sound featuring crashing power chords, rock steady drumming and anthemic sing-along choruses alongside powerfully poetic everyman lyrics. The group is set to release their Epitaph Records debut album On The Impossible Past this February 21st. Fans are invited to pre-order the album by going to The Menzingers Store. On The Impossible Past was recorded at Atlas Studios in Chicago with longtime collaborators Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms) and Justin Yates. While the record retains all the raucous spirit of the band’s earlier efforts sonically, it’s a monumental step forward. “I think that ‘Gates’ is one of the most mature songs on the album,” guitarist/vocalist Tom May explains, referencing the tender rock song sung by Barnett that truly transcends genres. “I hope it surprises people because it’s not a straight-forward punk song with gang vocals or anything like that but it still definitely sounds like us.”  It’s undoubtedly been an exciting time for The Menzingers, touring with acts like Against Me! and The Gaslight Anthem as well as playing their own headlining shows to enthusiastic audiences and the band wouldn’t change it for the world. “I get a lot of personal emails that say something to the effect of ‘my girlfriend broke up with me or my dad died and I listen to your music and it makes me feel really good’ and that validates what we’re doing and the time and effort we put into the new album,” May summarizes. “When people hear the songs from On The Impossible Past, I just hope people can relate to it and it makes them feel the way we do when we sing it.”  The Menzingers will be on tour with Rise Against starting January 17th and will release a 7 inch single for the track “The Obituaries” available here.
