Artist Bio

Alt rockers Temples stormed the UK back in March and now the band have confirmed they'll be hitting the road again in November/December. The tour comes in support of the release of the deluxe edition of the band's critically acclaimed debut album 'Sun Structures'.

Temples have announced details of Sun Restructured, a ‘re-animation’ of their much-acclaimed debut album, Sun Structures, by Beyond the Wizards Sleeve (Erol Alkan & Richard Norris) which is released on Heavenly Recordings on Monday November 10th 2014.

Taking the original record as their guide, Beyond The Wizards Sleeve have created a kaleidoscopic trip that redefines and takes the original into new, twisted sonic spaces. Using five re-interpreted tracks (Sand Dance, Shelter Song, A Question Isn’t Answered, Golden Throne & Move With The Season) from the original album to form the spine of the record, the 42-minute journey is interwoven with tweaked and warped snatches of other tracks from Sun Structures.

Describing the record, Erol Alkan said: “Being asked to re-animate a whole album’s worth of material is an honour. We (in return) wanted to create something special. A record which could be listened to in one go, from start to finish, a listening experience that is becoming increasingly rare. So as well as a host of full Beyond The Wizards Sleeve re-animations here, there are interludes, ambience, ebb and flow…each section flowing int a bigger piece. We tried many things along the way: spoken word sections, days out collecting field recordings, yet ended up letting the original songs and their beautiful arrangements and melodies guide us. There is so much happening under the surface of Sun Structures, and deep within each track, it was a pleasure to dive in and see what we could find. it inspired us to pick up our guitars, plug in our synthesisers and add some wizardry on top. Enjoy this trip. And it is a trip.”

Sun Restructured will be available as part of a deluxe CD and download re-issue package with the original album.

Sun Structures, which is Rough Trade Shops best selling album of the year and one of the best selling vinyl releases of 2014 so far, was initially released in February. The 12-track album, self-produced by the band’s James Bagshaw and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, has been a massive world-wide success, proving a huge international hit; in Japan the record became a top-3 fixture in the international chart.

The start of the year saw the band appear as part of the NME Awards Tour alongside Interpol as well as play their own headline UK tour which culminated in a euphoric sold-out show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

More recently the band have played in Japan and Australia, appeared at Reading / Leeds, Glastonbury, Field Day and Latitude festivals in the UK and have just returned from a run of sold-out American shows. They play a number of European festivals and head back to the UK in late summer to appear at End of the Road and Bestival before they head out in November / December for their biggest UK headline tour to date.
