Get Better – A Film About Frank Turner will be streamed on 10 and 11 June in the USA, Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Australia on demand at www.getbetterfilm.com.

Get Better is now also available to preorder on DVD, released 30 June 2017. Preorder through Xtra Mile here. The shop also has a bundle with the photo book by Matt Nasir of The Sleeping Souls, Photosynthesis: A Year in the Life of the Frank Turner Touring Family which you can preorder here.

Bonus features on the DVD include an acoustic set and Q&A between Frank, director Ben Morse, and journalist Hugo Rifkind from the film's premiere in London's Leicester Square in 2016.

Filmmaker Ben Morse spent a year trailing one of the most hard-working musicians currently operating and what emerges is a raw, insightful portrayal of an underground hero. A close friend of Turner, Morse originally intended to capture Turner and his band, The Sleeping Souls, in constant motion only to discover a man facing up to his demons, forced to pause touring for the first time in his career.

Get Better – A Film About Frank Turner includes never-before-seen footage from friends, family and fans across the world as well as extensive interviews with Turner and his band as they contemplate what drives a man to stay on the road and the effect that has on his life and those around him. Turner has been one of the breakthrough artists of the millennium, emerging from his punk-rock roots to become a rock icon to diehard fans all over the world. In 2015, everything came to a head as Turner slipped off the wagon and confronted the commercial pressures of mainstream success.

Frank will be supporting Jason Isbell on the road beginning September 1st.

Xtra Mile @ 2000trees Festival 2013!!


Xtra Mile Recordings are proud to announce that it will perform a takeover of the GreenHouse stage at the 2000trees Festival. The stage will feature numerous Xtra Mile acts playing special acoustic sets on Friday 12th July.

XMR take over the GreenHouse Stage at 2000trees 2013...

The Xtra Mile acoustic takeover includes Jim Lockey & the Solemn Sun, The Xcerts, Beans on Toast, Ben Marwood, Fighting Fiction, Emily Barker & the Red Clay Halo and Crazy Arm.

They join a line-up already packed with Xtra Mile acts playing full band sets, including Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls, Retrospective Soundtrack Players, Fighting with Wire (playing their last ever UK show) and Thursday night headliners Future of the Left.

Charlie Caplowe, Managing Director of Xtra Mile Recordings says: 

“We are thrilled to be spending a fun-filled weekend at 2000trees. It’s one of our favourite festivals of the year and we’ve got loads of our acts playing over the three days. Come and find us at the GreenHouse Stage on Friday for our Xtra Mile takeover. The summer can’t come soon enough.”

Other acts confirmed to play GreenHouse sets on Friday include Oxygen Thief, Ady Suleiman, Charlotte Carpenter and Dan Heaver.

2000trees organizer James Scarlett says: “This is a one-off treat for all fans of Xtra Mile artists and it is fitting that we honour their contribution to new and underground British music in the year that their biggest act, Frank Turner, is headlining 2000trees.

“We are music fans first and foremost and we run 2000trees to share our love of great music with like-minded festival-goers, so we cannot wait to see what will be a very special year for 2000trees.”

2000trees has already confirmed Mystery Jets, Stornoway, King Charles, Funeral for a Friend, And So I Watch You From Afar, We Are The Ocean and INME, among the 80 acts on four stages over three days.

Frank Turner added:

“Xtra Mile has backed me since the start and it has a deep love of new and underground British music, which is shared by the great guys at 2000trees who also booked me as far back as 2007. So this is undoubtedly going to be one of the highlights of my year.”

Tickets for Thursday’s Early Entry night are almost sold out. It includes Future of the Left, The Xcerts, Gallops, Max Raptor, Freeze the Atlantic and EMPIRE, but tickets are almost sold out for this extra evening of fun and music.
