Australia has a happy knack of throwing up oddball, idiosyncratic bands that initially appear limited by an inability or unwillingness to fit into the cookie cutter yet — in time — find enough fans to lift them to cult hero status. Apart from just being a red hot rock band, it’s that character that propels The Peep Tempel and adds flesh to their tales of disaffected blues.
The Peep Tempel have earned a reputation as one of Australia’s most powerful and respected live acts. Their performances have been described as both energetic and scabrous in equal doses. Testament to the band’s live reputation, was their nomination for Best Band (2015) and Best Live Band (2105, 2016) at the The Age Music Victoria Awards.
During the 2016 Australian summer The Peep Tempel wrote their third album in their West Melbourne studio and collaborated with engineer Anna Laverty (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Courtney Barnett), to record and mix the album at Sing Sing Studios. Don’t miss these punk rock legends play it live at SITG!
