The band says, "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!"

About Turnspit:

Turnspit are one of Chicago's hardest working bands. Made of grit, sweat and soulful prowess, Turnspit were born out of a moment of bliss during a Samiam set at Riot Fest in 2014 when they were "feeling the itch" to ditch the solo gigs and form a band. Since 2014, Turnspit have been leaning into the music scene non-stop with recording singles and EPs at Atlas Studios to playing frequent shows in the city. Having shared a stage with bands like The Lawrence Arms, Worriers, Dowsing, Meridian, RVIVR, Worship This!, and Alkaline Trio since then, the group felt their biggest moment of joy when they played the Heather Owen Stage during Riot Fest 2017.

The punk foursome grasp the livelihood of the city's music scene when they're not making their own tracks. Drummer Dan Tinkler is a sound engineer at Atlas Studios, guitarist and vocalist Jason Swearingen is a graphic designer and illustrator/artist, vocalist and guitarist Gillian McGhee works at Cobra Lounge and volunteers at a local animal shelter (One Tail At A Time) and Bradley Davis is a stage manager at Thalia Hall. Not only does the group give back to the scene they love, they're socially conscious with their performances and donate proceeds from some shows to organizations like RAINN, Girl Forward and spread the message of inclusivity.

Weaving influences into their midwestern punk tracks with poetic sensibility, Turnspit are in the wheelhouse of their favorite bands: The Gaslight Anthem, The Menzingers, Rise Against, Lucero, Hot Water Music and Against Me! Taking some pointers to heart, McGhee said Chuck Ragan's Covering Ground influenced her iconic "growl."
"I wanted to be able to produce that sound with my voice and put my own spin on it," McGhee said. "I've worked on my vocal delivery for years and am very proud of my ability to go from soft and pretty to harsh and gritty."
