Brand new studio album
release date: 16th February 2018

The Temperance Movement - A Deeper Cut

British rock and rollers THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have returned with news of a brand new studio album to be released in early 2018, supported by a European headlining tour. Following a whirlwind few years in which they released two Top 20 albums, toured around the world and shared the stage with such rock megastars as THE ROLLING STONES, THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT are finally back, having been hard at work behind the scenes preparing for an even bigger year in 2018.

The band’s eagerly-anticipated new album, ‘A Deeper Cut‘, is due to be released on February 16th, 2018 and features 12 brand new songs which draw on the band’s recent experiences and showcase their ever-improving songwriting abilities.

“This is my favourite record we’ve made so far and I’m more excited about getting this out there than I have been about any of the previous albums,” states guitarist Paul Sayer. “I feel like we’ve really captured what the band is about on this one; I can’t wait for people to hear it and I can’t wait to get out on the road and play it live to everyone.”

Guitarist Matt White, who makes his recording debut with THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT on ‘A Deeper Cut’, adds: “There isn’t an ounce of fat on this album. Everything that is on there happened because it was absolutely necessary and vital that it was put down. It’s both a nod to the past and a wink to the future. It was a pleasure to be involved in writing and recording with The Temperance Movement for the first time. I feel that together, with [producer] Sam Miller, we have surpassed any expectations that were placed upon us and that we have produced the finest body of work from the band to date.”

From the moment “Caught In The Middle” kicks in, you know this album is going to be something special. Infectious and instantly memorable, it picks up where “White Bear” left off, only taking a few seconds to reel you in. “Built-In Forgetter” and “Love And Devotion” continue with The Temperance Movement’s trademark danceable brand of rock, with a feel-good vibe and catchy hooks Title track “A Deeper Cut” has a more contemplative approach, with a dreamy chorus guaranteed to get arms swaying and the crowd singing at their upcoming tour. The quieter, almost wistful sound allows the immense talent of vocalist Phil Campbell to shine brightly, showing a strong yet softer side of his range.

Next up is a stirring funky number entitled “Backwater Zoo”, which is followed up by a soulful, bluesy ballad in the form of “Another Spiral”. “Beast Nation” and “Higher Than The Sun” are laid back, chilled tracks encapsulating the distinctive sound that has garnered the band such a loyal fanbase, whilst “The Way It Was And The Way It Is Now” has a perfect, singalong chorus and a timeless feel. The band are at their most emotionally profound and vulnerable on “Children”, which is followed up by the piano-driven “There’s Still Time”, a quietly impassioned track infused with an uplifting spirit. The finale, “The Wonders We’ve Seen”, continues the mellow mood that flows throughout the album, and brings “A Deeper Cut” to a close.
