The Late David Turpin was born in coastal Ireland at Christmastime.
He released two well-received albums under his own name; had a cult hit at Hallowe'en 2009 with "The Bone Dance"; made his live debut with Marc Almond and toured with The Divine Comedy; performed by invitation at gallery venues including Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane (the oldest public gallery of modern art in the world).
Next, he wrote a doctoral thesis on Animal Transformations in Mid-century American Poetry; taught at university; composed for theatre and dance; loved and lost; died for approximately 28 seconds; rose again.
Now The Late David Turpin has a new album, We Belong Dead, due for release on September 13, 2013. A contemporary gothic micro-odyssey that twins themes of love and romance with imaginary folk narratives of the return of the animal, We Belong Dead is an eerie and erotic bulletin from the other side. Let it in.
