Turnstile continue to have an incredible year. Though the shape-shifting hardcore crew are two years out from the release of their groundbreaking third album, GLOW ON, they keep growing bigger, and more impressive, with every show as they ascend toward the mainstream.

Earlier tonight, the band performed at Riot Fest in Chicago, playing a handful of tracks from GLOW ON, as well as some cuts from their other records Time & Space and Nonstop Feeling. (Their song from I Think You Should Leave was sorely missed.) Turnstile excel at making music that feels good — a feat made all the more clear when you witness the band live. Frontman Brendan Yates leaps around onstage, singing their blinding, towering tunes to a crowd that’s eager to yell back the words.
