About: Temples

Temples are an English psychedelic rock band, formed in Kettering, Northamptonshire in 2012, by singer-guitarist James Edward Bagshaw and bassist Thomas Edison Warmsley. They have received considerable press attention during their short existence and have been cited by Johnny Marr and Noel Gallagher as one of the best new bands in Britain.

The band was initially formed as a home studio project in mid 2012. The duo had previously worked together in The Moons, with Bagshaw also having co-fronted another earlier Kettering band Sukie who formed in 2006 and charted at No 1 in the UK Indie Chart with their debut single "Pink-A-Pade". Sukie were featured in the fanzine "Siren", edited and created by Warmsley to documents Kettering's music scene.

The duo uploaded four self produced tracks to YouTube which caught the attention of Heavenly Recordings founder Jeff Barrett who agreed to release the band's debut single in the form of "Shelter Song" in November 2012. They then enlisted fellow Kettering residents drummer Sam Toms (Secret Fix and ex-Koolaid Electric Company) and keyboard player Adam Smith and started rehearsing as band to be able to play their songs live, having never played live as a band before. The band released their second single "Colours To Life" in June 2013.

Having played major UK and European festival and supported the likes of Suede, Mystery Jets, Kasabian and The Vaccines alongside select headline dates, the band announced their first headline UK tour to take place in October 2013. In November 2013, Temples announced their debut album, Sun Structures, to be released on 10 February 2014.
