The Temperance Movement Announce New Album And Tour Dates

The Temperance Movement

British rock ‘n’ rollers THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT are proud to announce their brand new studio album, ‘White Bear’.

Due to be released on January 15th, 2016, the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to their 2013 self-titled debut was recorded with producer Sam Miller in London, Northamptonshire and Monmouth and features 10 stomping new blues-rock anthems.  The band will support ‘White Bear’ with a UK tour which kicks off the day after the album’s release.



Guitarist, Paul Sayer confides, “White Bear is a real step on for us sonically and artistically.  Playing so many shows together over the last 3 years allowed us to develop a really clear idea of where we wanted to go with our next record.  When it came to making this album we had a bit more time and space to let our creativity go, and I’m incredibly proud of what we achieved.”

Whilst on the album title, ‘White Bear’, singer Phil Campbell notes, “Nick called me with the title which inspired the lyric to the song.  It refers to a study by Daniel Wenger on mindfulness and the controlling of unwanted thoughts, testing a quote from Dostoevsky’s ‘Winter Notes on Summer Impressions’: ‘Try to pose for yourself this task: not to think of a polar bear, and you will see that the cursed thing will come to mind every minute.'”
