    Screenings of the new Frank Turner documentary, Get Better – A Film About Frank Turner, have been announced. The full press release can be found below.

    March 28, 2017 (Santa Monica, CA) Xtra Mile/Interscope Records recording artist Frank Turner screens the documentary film Get Better – A Film About Frank Turner – an exhilarating and candid film about a year in his life – for U.S. audiences this spring. Turner will join filmmaker Ben Morse for a Q&A at screenings in Chicago, Pomona, Boston and New York. A DVD of the documentary will be available at a later date.
    Advance tickets for the screenings are available HERE.

    Filmmaker Ben Morse spent a year trailing one of the most hard-working musicians currently operating and what emerges is a raw, insightful portrayal of an underground hero. A close friend of Turner, Morse originally intended to capture Turner and his band, The Sleeping Souls, in constant motion only to discover a man facing up to his demons, forced to pause touring for the first time in his career.

    Get Better – A Film About Frank Turner includes never-before-seen footage from friends, family and fans across the world as well as extensive interviews with Turner and his band as they contemplate what drives a man to stay on the road and the effect that has on his life and those around him. Turner has been one of the breakthrough artists of the millennium, emerging from his punk-rock roots to become a rock icon to diehard fans all over the world. In 2015, everything came to a head as Turner slipped off the wagon and confronted the commercial pressures of mainstream success.

    Get Better – A Film About Frank Turner will be distributed by distributed by Xtra Mile Film / Polydor Records and Interscope in the US.

    Music, a steady riot in my soul. Prestigious

    None of the screenings will be anywhere near me, but the mention of a DVD makes me happy. I can't wait to eventually get my hands on this.

    The horizon is my home... Supporter

    I got to see the film last year. If you're a fan of Frank Turner, it's well worth a watch. There's plenty of music, combined with a look at the life of an artist who can fill large venues...but who has not yet experienced a breakout moment. The film looks at the process of making the album that he (rather than the label) wants to make, along with the demands of a hectic touring schedule, falling in love and plenty of lost evenings! My only criticism is that the film spends too long with Frank + friends telling you the stories, rather than getting to see what happened. If it's coming to your city...check it out!
