Nashville’s Turbo Fruits headline Norse Korea’s anniversary weekend

“Those types of shows, where there’s a celebration going on, are some of my favorites,” he says. “And I always like playing Orlando and Florida in general; in my opinion, it’s one of the more underappreciated territories to tour through. Since a lot of bands don’t make it down there, people are always ready to have a good time.”

But Stein adds that he and the Fruits are ready to do more than just have a good time. Although the upcoming record doesn’t have a definite release date or locked-down label situation yet, he hopes it can transcend the band’s reputation as hell-raising, road-loving miscreants.

“We’ve got a good rhythm of making a little scratch at home, touring and repeating, but ideally, it’d be great to amplify our career as Turbo Fruits into a full-time thing,” he says. “I’ve learned over the years that you never really know what will take, though, and you can’t expect anything to happen. The most important thing is that we’re proud of this next album. We’re never thinking about doing garage rock or chasing a sound. It’s best to just stay your course, keep your head up and feel good about what you’re doing.”
