BALTIMORE -- Baltimore-based hardcore rock outfit Turnstile landed GRAMMY nominations for songs off of its latest album "Glow On."

Turnstile is nominated for best rock performance (Holiday), best rock song (Blackout) and best metal performance (Blackout).

The band has earned a dedicated following since its inception in 2010, and greater recognition outside of the hardcore genre in recent years as it blends pop, R&B and electronic sounds into its fast-paced tracks. 

In an interview with GRAMMY.com last year, frontman Brendan Yates reflected on how Baltimore City shaped the band's innovative style and refusal to box itself in. 

"...I think Baltimore being a small city where there's a lot of different kinds of music and art and people doing a lot of different things almost forces those things to overlap," Yates said. "You play shows together. I think that alone is always subconsciously a trick of how we approach it."

If you've given them a listen and aren't feeling it, the band's line in No Surprise might ring true: "you really gotta see it live to get it."   Here's a recording of their "Glow On" record release show last year at Baltimore Soundstage by the channel hate5six.
