Chicago’s sweethearts Turnspit have announced that they have signed with Dodgeball Records! After a long and tireless search, the band will finally be releasing their upcoming debut album, Desire Paths, on February 16th, 2018.

The band stated:

“We’re excited to be working with Dodgeball. We’ve been looking for the right home for Desire Paths for a little while. It was important to us that whoever released our debut LP understood who we are and what we try to do with our music, and the family at Dodgeball could not be more supportive or like-minded. They’re as hard-working and dedicated as we try to be. We can’t wait for everyone to hear the record!”

The members of Turnspit took on more in-depth roles that most when it came to the creation of their LP. Drummer Dan Tinkler both produced and engineered the album, which was recorded at Atlas Studios. Singer/ Guitarist Jason Swearingen also used his design talents to create the gorgeous album cover.
