Artist Bio

Following their brilliant debut album Sun Structures; named Rough Trade Shop’s Album Of The Year 2014; Temples return with their 2nd LP, Volcano, in 2017, a record that has been recorded and produced by the band in James’s home studio.

The album arrives to outstanding critical acclaim; Album Of The Month in Q Magazine and DIY, and 4* reviews in NME, Mojo, The Times and Clash Magazine.

“When they let loose on ‘Celebration’ they’re an impossibly addictive proposition and with ‘Oh The Saviour’ and ‘I Wanna Be Your Mirror’ they have their very own status-changing anthems” – Q Magazine

 “The band have not only built on their debut, but expanded their sound hugely” – Clash Magazine

The lead single Certainty was added to radio and Spotify playlists around the world, including an A list at 6music UK, and was Hype Machine’s No 1 most blogged for 3 days.

The video has had almost 500K views; watch it here

“It’s a bewitching, colour-soaked, synth-enhanced return.” – Clash Magazine

“Stadium-ready, cinematic psych song” – NME Magazine

“Certainty, has a streaky, synthy sense of uplift to it.” – Stereogum

The band were invited to perform on France’s No 1 prime time show Quotidien and also Last Call With Carson Daly, following appearances on The Ellen show, and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on their debut release.

Second single Strange Or Be Forgotten had similar success around the world picking up playlists on BBC Radio 2, 6 music, Radio X and Virgin Radio in the UK, 3FM in Holland, RTS Couleur 3 in Switzerland, DR P6 Beat in Denmark and many significant Spotify additions.

The video has racked up over 200K views so far; see it here

Temples have spent the last 2 years touring the world – North American headline tours, sold out UK tours including dates at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and Forum, as well as performances at Coachella, Glastonbury, Fuji Rock, Lowlands and Austin Psych Fest.

Temples are: James Bagshaw (vocals & guitar), Tom Walmsley (bass & backing vocals) & Adam Smith (keys & guitar). Their debut single Shelter Song was added to playlists across the UK in 2013 and led to the band signing to Heavenly Records. To date it has had almost 8m streams on Spotify.
