Turning Point was an American straight edge hardcore punk band from New Jersey that existed from 1988 to 1991. Their early releases had the sound of youth crew, with lyrics relating to social issues or being straight edge. The later material was a lot more emo-influenced, integrating more emotional lyrics, softer vocal delivery, and octave chords. This eventually led the way for other straight edge/hardcore bands to do so, such as Split Lip and Falling Forward. Candelori died in 2002 of an accidental drug overdose.

  • Turning Point fue una banda hardcore punk creada en Nueva Jersey, y activa entre los años 1988 a 1991. Integrada nuclearmente por Frank "Skip" Candelori (voz), Jay Laughlin (guitarra), Nick Greif (bajo) y Ken Flavell (batería). En sus inicios, Steve Crudello también participó como guitarrista, tocando en el 7" homónimo de 1989. Sus miembros estuvieron involucrados en varios proyectos straight edge antes de formar la banda: Candelori y Laughlin en Pointless,​ Flavell en Failsafe, junto a su hermano Chris; y Greif en Awareness. Matthew Kerfoot (guitarrista en Awareness) fue contactado por Greif para tocar batería en Turning Point, aunque este rechazó la oferta por asistir a la universidad. Tras el quiebre, sus integrantes se abocaron a un sinfín de proyectos musicales: Godspeed, Memorial Day, Shadow Season, Christ, entre otros. Laughlin es el único activo en la música hasta hoy,​ siendo dueño de un estudio de grabación y parte de bandas como Lenola, Like a Fox, y JLL.​ En mayo del 2000, Jade Tree Records lanzó una recopilación con toda la discografía de Turning Point.​ El 19 de junio de 2002, Frank Candelori murió por una sobredosis accidental de drogas.​​
