London-based blues rockers The Temperance Movement are off on tour. Nothing new there, they played over a hundred gigs last year, and have already built a reputation for their live show here in e UK especially. This time though, the boys are off to peddle their considerable wares around the concert Halls of Europe first, before arriving back on home soil for a series of dates.
It’s been quite a year for the band, which consists of Glasgow born vocalist Phil Campbell and ex-Rooster and Ben’s Brother guitarist Luke Potashnick, fellow guitarist Paul Sayer, former Jamiroquai bassist Nick Fyffe and Australian born drummer Damon Wilson, session drummer to the stars, or at least the likes of Ray Davis, The Waterboys and Feeder. They released their debut, self-titled album last September which promptly crashed straight into the UK charts at number 12.
The tour begins on March 13th in Holland, and the band will tour through the continent through the whole of April and into May, including the bands biggest ever headline show, taking place at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on April 30th.
