New album ‘White Bear’
out January 15th 2016 through Earache Records
Full UK Headline tour in January
London venue change
Due for release on January 15th, the album White Bear follows their critically-acclaimed 2013 self-titled debut and was recorded with producer Sam Miller in London, Northamptonshire and Monmouth. True to the band’s mantra of recording songs in three takes or less, there is an immediacy, drive and spontaneity to the album that makes the songs crackle with adventure and sheer chemistry.
Putting a modern stamp on hard rock and blues, The Temperance Movement have crafted one of the most intoxicating records of recent times with White Bear; an album that is both expansive and electrifying. Opening with the swaggering ‘Three Bulleits’ (titled after the Bulleit brand of bourbon favoured by some of the band), White Bear runs the whole gamut of modern rock’n’roll.
From the classic Faces/Crowes R&B stylings of ‘Get Yourself Free’ – which comes complete with a raw soul vocal from Campbell and Crosby, Stills & Nash-style harmonies from the band – to the explosive pace of the adrenaline-fuelled ‘Modern Massacre’, White Bear is a masterclass in songwriting from a band at the peak of their powers.
It’s little wonder that The Rolling Stones hand-picked the band to support them on four massive arena shows. In a new behind the scenes video The Temperance Movement discuss hanging out with Mick Jagger in his dressing room as well as getting guitars signed by Keith Richards.
