Turin Brakes


A British band who have been touring together for almost two decades will perform in a Somerset town later this year.

Turin Brakes will take to the stage at the Cheese & Grain in Justice Lane, Frome, on October 5.

The band formed in Balham, South West London, in 1999 and earned a Mercury Music Prize nomination in 2001 for their debut album The Optimist.

Ether Song then followed in 2003 featuring the top five single Pain Killer (Summer Rain).

Over the following 13 years the band went on to release five more studio albums before their latest work, Invisible Storm, which was launched in January.

Support on the evening will come from talented folk-pop solo performer Tom Speight.

The event will begin at 8pm.

Tickets, priced £22, are available online.
