"Definetly the best single of the Year" String She Pulled - Billy @ Aberdeen Events

"Aberdeen's Turning 13 are one of the most exlosive bands you’ll hear for some time"

Aberdeen's Turning 13 are one of the most exlosive bands you’ll hear for some time. They’ve been attracting comparisons to Fugazi,deftones and of course Biffy Clyro for obvious reasons – they’re Scottish of course, and they too make intelligent, explosive rock – but that’s nowhere near the whole picture. There’s something instantly likeable about these songs that’s entirely Turning 13's own doing. Maybe it’s the perfect balance of light and shade, super catchy chorus's and explosive live shows – but whatever it is, they’re clearly on to a winner. This debut single is surely the beginning of great things. - Alan porterton

mini album, Baby Puzzles (2006),
EP, String She Pulled ‘Fat Hippy records’ (2010)



Turning Thirteen – a dynamic four-piece Aberdeen band whose debut single, ‘String She Pulled’, is packed with enormous riffs, moods that flit from light to shade, and impassioned vocals, are powering out of their hometown to take on the world. The seeds of Turning Thirteen were sown when front man Steve Bruce and his brother Jeff decided, united by a love of music, to start something that was unique to the their corner of Scotland. Since those early days, they have evolved into one of Scotland’s most exciting new rock bands with sweet melodies twisted with a heavy crunch and shades of hardcore punk.

Following the success of the self- financed mini album ‘Baby Puzzles’ (2006), show-stopping support slots with ‘Biffy Clyro’, like-minded Brit rockers ‘Hundred Reasons’ and more recently Welsh rock band ‘Future Of The Left’, the band were approached by several Scottish indie labels for a debut release. Choosing to stay true to their musical roots Turning Thirteen headed into the studio to record their debut single ‘String She Pulled’ with established Aberdeen label Fat Hippy Records.

Turning13 are poised for greatness. The group of fans who once held them as their own little secret is growing like wild fire, the word of mouth buzz about their intense live shows and fresh sound is getting louder everyday... and as for Turning Thirteen’s state of mind and love of music, they’ve been sure for as long as they have been playing together that this is what drives them!

Turning Thirteen ‘String She Pulled’ out Mon 29th March available from various record shops and on iTunes, Napster, Spotify, hmv.com, play.com, eMusic etc
