Turnstiles stop spinning and separate

Galway punks quit with a final gig and the wind at their heels


Having managed their trajectory from those early incendiary Freehouse gigs in Galway's Áras na nGael to playing sold out Workman's Club gigs and Forbidden Fruit festival, things have come full circle. As Turnstiles announced they are splitting, they also gave a final offering to the musical gods with one last gig in their spiritual home - Áras na nGael.

Poster for Turnstiles' final gig

This is mighty difficult news for us to process. And for their many fans it means no more thrilling music or nights in the Tantrum-driven mosh pit. Except ... there are two final new tracks going to be released digitally and there is this one last gig. This is how the band announced the news:

This summer we are going our separate ways. To say thank you to everyone who made the last two and a half years an unbelievable experience, we are putting on our biggest ever show on Saturday, June 11th. No venue could be more fitting than Áras na nGael and there's no band we'd rather share the stage with than The Love Buzz. We want to make this a real celebration, so it will be an all day party, starting at 2pm, with music, food and pints throughout. We'll be setting up a stage outside so as many people as possible can be there! All profits will be split between the Galway Simon Community and MASI.

Tickets are available via the button below and are limited to 350.

This also means that their debut EP will be the only vinyl they produced. There are a few still available and when they're gone that's it. Buy in our online shop using the link below.

Thanks for the memories and the sheer unadulterated joy of the music.
