The rhythm section consists of former Jamiroquai bassist Nick Fyffe and the Australian-born drummer Damon Wilson, who has played with the likes of Ray DaviesThe Waterboys and Feeder.The band released their “Pride EP” in 2012, and their eponymous debut studio album was released on 16 September 2013.

The Temperance Movement’s first release was their “Pride EP”, which came out on 10 September 2012, and featured five tracks: “Ain’t No Telling”, “Only Friend”, “Pride”, “Be Lucky” and “Lovers & Fighters”. The following week, the band appeared at the 2012 edition of the Sunflower Jam SuperJam at the Royal Albert Hall, where, as the opening act, they played the first two tracks from their EP. The band also played at Futurerock at the 100 Club (Oxford Street, London) on 9 November 2012,and they embarked on a UK tour from late April to early May 2013. The band’s debut studio album, The Temperance Movement, was released on 16 September 2013 on Earache Records. The album features the five tracks from the “Pride EP” alongside seven other songs.

The Temperance Movement are hewn from the same “ROCK” as the Faces, Free and the Black Crowes, filtered through the Glaswegian grit of Phil Campbell’s imperious voice.

Only a proper band uses Les Pauls, SG’s Telecasters and Grolsch bottle top rubbers for strap locks !!!!

Live, they are tight as a camel’s arse in a sandstorm and will guarantee to shake even the most sedentary limb into action.

The sound is analogue-friendly, not Pro Tools trickery, music straight from the heart. If you like your music rootsy, punchy and organic, then you’ll love the likes of




All showcasing yet another amazing “sweaty sock” voice, that of Phil Campbell who must be the currently the best British vocalist .

The saviour of British Rock ??? You’d better believe it.
