Converse Premieres new Turf War Song

Formed as a bedroom recording project by singer/guitarist John Robinson in 2008, Turf War became a full band in mid-2009 and began to grow a local following in their hometown of Augusta, GA before moving to Atlanta. Their style is gritty, Southern-tinged indie punk rock, with major influences from The Replacements, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bruce Springsteen, and 60 years of rock and roll. Following two years of touring, Turf War’s debut album “Years Of Living Dangerously” was released on Old Flame Records in October 2011 with production by Ian St Pé of The Black Lips. The album’s single “Cheers To The Years” made its way to Sirius XMU rotation shortly after release and was featured in Showtime’s Shameless last week. 2012 held for a major influx of live shows for Turf War, touring the southeast, midwest, and east coast, with festival stops at Fun Fun Fun Fest, Savannah Stopover, Governors Ball Music Festival, and Firefly Festival. They released the first single “Born To Run Free” off their new EP, The Great Escape, on April 2nd via Converse and will hit the road next week. Catch Turf War on their headline tour this April across the southeast with more spring & summer tour announcements coming soon.
