“The only thing that decides whether we do something or not is if it’s exciting," Turnstile drummer Daniel Fang says while his bandmates hang out and play on guitars around him. "It doesn’t have to fit in these parameters of a hardcore band sound or anything."

In the latest FADER x WAV Present Frequencies mini-doc, we ride with the Maryland hardcore band as they skate, explore the woods, and hang out on rooftops in between kinetic performances. The six-pieces is built on kinship — “everyone is just friends first and foremost,” frontman Brendan Yates says — which helps a group that's been on tour almost constantly since the release of 2018's Time & Space. “It’s hard to say where anything is going, but a band is constantly reflecting and growing, as each of us individually grow," Yates says. "I think that’s the most important thing."
