Baltimore punk band TURNSTILE and Toronto alt-jazz ensemble BADBADNOTGOOD have released New Heart Designs, a collaborative three-song EP which sees the two groups teaming up to reimagine songs from TURNSTILE’s celebrated LP GLOW ON. TURNSTILE have also shared “New Heart Designs,” a companion full EP video for the newly reworked versions of “Mystery,” “Alien Love Call” (Ft. Blood Orange), and “Underwater Boi,” which was filmed and edited by Alex Henery – watch the video below. New Heart Designs is available now on all streaming platforms with a vinyl release to follow later this year.
Recorded with producer Mike Elizondo and co-produced by TURNSTILE vocalist Brendan Yates, GLOW ON staked its claim as one of 2021’s top releases and earned the Baltimore band their first ever GRAMMY nominations at the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The band received a total of three nods with “HOLIDAY” garnering nominations for both Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance, while “BLACKOUT” scored a nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category. Comprised of Brendan Yates (Vocals), Franz Lyons (Bass/Vocals), Pat McCrory (Guitars), and Daniel Fang (Drums), TURNSTILE’s brand of youth-minded, youth-driven hardcore punk is intent on breaking down barriers, sonically and ideologically.
