Frank Turner is a familiar, and welcome, face for Tampa Bay punk fans, and this fall he’ll bring a new album to a venue he’s never played before.

Today, the 37-year-old announced that a 19-date fall tour in support of No Man’s Land is landing at Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg on November 6. The stop is Turner’s only Florida show.

The album’s name is significant in that the effort features an all-female cast of musicians all dedicated to telling stories of 13 women whose lives have been overlooked. What’s more is that the album, due August 16, is accompanied by a new 13-episode podcast series called “Tales from No Man's Land.”

A press release says that the tour dates will see Turner put a new twist on his formidable live set up, featuring a solo set followed by an unplugged band performance in seated venues.

"For this tour, I thought it would be good to give the new album some proper attention, so the first set of mine of the night will be a solo run through some of those songs and stories,” he said. “Once the Souls are up with me, we're playing around with a slightly more stripped back, thoughtful folk approach to some of the older material, which feels different and powerful. Looking forward to sharing a slightly different show with everyone for this run." 

Ticket prices and details have yet to be announced, but we’re guessing that this show is happening at Palladium’s larger, 850-seat Hough Hall. A presale starts on Wednesday, July 17 at 11 a.m. EDT, and tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, July 19 at 10 a.m.
