Early in 2012, folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner announced he would be embarking on a new project which returned to the hardcore roots of Million Dead.
In August 2012, the first clip of that new band, Mongol Horde, appeared online, capturing the musicians live in their rehearsal space.
At the end of the month, Mongol Horde played well-received sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals. Prior to those well publicised appearances, the band made their public debut at The Wheelbarrow in Camden, supported by an enthusiastic and very intimate crowd. That performance can now be viewed below.
