Melodic punks, Turnspit have released the first single off of their freshman full-length LP Desire Paths (due out February 16 on Dodgeball Records) and the Chicago based quartet sent it over, exclusively for DS readers to stream! The premiere track, “Walk Away” puts Turnspit’s defining features on display: dual vocals, catchy hooks and anthemic choruses. When we asked lead vocalist Gillian McGhee about the single, she told us that it was the last song the band wrote together before starting the recording process, explaining: “We needed to write one more song before heading into the studio, and I remembered this chord progression I had written about a year earlier. It always stuck with me, but I never developed it on my own. When I showed it to the rest of the band and we started working on it, we knew we had a banger on our hands.” Banger, indeed!

Tickets are on sale now for Turnspit’s record release show on February 17 at Gman Tavern there in The Windy City where they will share the stage with fellow Chicagoans Retirement Party, Blood People and Third Twin Sister.
