Temples / March and April 2017 English Tour

 
By on Friday, 13th January 2017 at 8:00 am
 

Kettering psych rock band Temples have announced a list of live dates to be played in England this spring, following the release of their forthcoming second album ‘Volcano’. The new LP is due out on the 3rd of March via Heavenly Recordings, and the band have also unveiled a new track from it, titled ‘Strange or Be Forgotten’. Bassist Tom Walmsley describes the impetus for the song: “We’re continually inundated with pressure in modern life to have to make something of ourselves and leave behind a legacy in this world. ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ is our way of questioning the necessity of having to be all so individual and unique – when really it’s our true selves that should be celebrated.” You’ll find a stream of ‘Strange or Be Forgotten’ just below the tour date listing.

Temples’ upcoming shows in England are part of a larger European tour; you can find a full listing of their live dates on the band’s official Web site. In the midst of their English tour, Temples will also make a stop at the 2Q Festival in Derby on the 1st of April. Tickets for the following shows will be available today starting at 10 AM.

TGTF’s previous coverage of Temples, including a live review from Kendal Calling 2015, is collected right through here.
