FEW British bands are capable of sending the kind of ripples of excitement through the wider musical world that Temples have upon the announcement of their forthcoming sophomore record. The proponents of a heady and all-consuming brand of psychedelia which wraps itself your synapses and entices your mind with every note, the band have renewed their momentum with the reveal of latest track ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten.’

Continuing to expand their palette in the same manner that ‘Certainty’ did when it emerged, this latest excerpt from their new album is inundated with shimmering textures, inviting synths and a vivid vocal turn from frontman James Bagshaw. A sound which is at once futuristic and yet could nestle comfortably alongside the enlightened and subversive bands of the past, excitement for Volcano is at an all time high following the bold and ambitious statement which this outing makes.

The band’s new album is eligible for pre-order on both digital and physical formats now ahead of its release via Fat Possum Records.
