TURNSTILE: The Glow Isn't That Big

Turnstile is one of the big breakthrough bands of the past two years with their album Glow On, but frontman Brendan Yates says people have a misconception about their actual popularity.

Yates tells Anti-Matter that "I think we’re often surprised by other people’s perceptions of the level they think the band is at. Like, for example, even playing those late-night shows, that was something my family members saw as a different level. But to us, we had to load in that day, and bring in all our gear, and play the show. We didn’t even have a touring crew with us until [last] year."

Yates adds that what does feel different is "the opportunities and the places where we can exist; that still kind of blows our minds. Like, how are we the only band on this jazz festival in Norway? Or an all hip-hop festival where we’re the only band. I think what’s almost always assumed is that things feel different for us -- like the whole world changed. But I think, while the opportunities have changed, everything else truly feels exactly the same as far as who we are or where we’re from."
