Laneway Spotlight: Turnstile

One band to check out at St Jeromes Laneway Festival this year is Turnstile.

Turnstile are an American hardcore punk band from Baltimore, Maryland, formed in 2010. They have released five EPs and three studio albums. In November of 2022 it was announced they were nominated for three Grammy Awards.

Born from the Baltimore hardcore scene, TURNSTILE have spent a decade injecting infectious punk energy and emotional empathy into every moshpit they’ve encountered. Their 2021 record, Glow On, was a bold and boundary-pushing step forward, and included collabs with Blood Orange plus abundant imagination, heart and grooves plucked from all corners of the musical spectrum.

The record is one thing, but the live show is something else altogether. In the Turnstile universe, gravity is like fear, hesitation or alienation: something to be defied. They’re joining Laneway for the first time to make us all feel alive – it’s just part of their show.

Some of our favourite Turnstile tunes include:
