It’s been a “mesmerising” ascent for Temples of Kettering, England, and as the year has turned, so does their climb continue. With a soon-to-be announced second US tour looming on the horizon, as well as their third-line billing at the massive Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the only word that can be used to describe their outlook in the States is “auspicious.” Or perhaps “thrilling?” “Enthusiastic?” Ok, perhaps there’s more than one word that can be used here, but they’re all positive! And we’re also positive that you’ll find the new video for their single “Mesmerise” simply…well…you know. The video was premiered earlier today on The FADER, and the song can be found on their forth-coming debut full-length, Sun Structures, out Feb. 11th on Fat Possum. You can pre-order the record below.
Also, we’re very excited to announce that Temples have been added as direct support to Interpol on the prestigeous NME Awards Tour. In the past, this tour has acted as a launching pad for artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand, and Florence & The Machine on their debut albums, so clearly, big things ahead for this foursome!
