They did it with “Sweet Disposition” and now they’ve done it again with their latest single “Trembling Hands.” Rolling Stone Australia, which gave the band’s new release a glowing 4-stars, called the track, “A powerful epic that contrasts tight, understated verses against the soaring, cathedral grandeur of a chorus that ranks among the Temper Trap’s best.” The band will be performing this track, along with others, on LIVE ON LETTERMAN streamed live from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, on June 6th at 9:00 PM, ET/6:00 PM, PT on CBS.com and on The Late Show with David Letterman on June 7th.

Australian born/East London based The Temper Trap is pleased to announce a return to the States this March to play a handful of intimate club dates in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. The trip will also include a stop in Austin at SXSW where the band will debut new music from their upcoming sophomore release due this spring on Glassnote/Columbia Records in the U.S.

The Temper Trap garnered critical acclaim and commercial success with their 2009 debut ‘Conditions,’ which spawned the hit singles ‘Sweet Disposition,’ ‘Love Lost,’ ‘Science of Fear’ and ‘Fader.’

Chris Martins of Spin Magazine recently joined the band and producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, M83) in the studio at the Sound Factory in Hollywood, CA. Martins spoke to the band about their upcoming album (Title TBC) and was able to hear three new tracks: http://www.spin.com/articles/studio-temper-trap-follow-sun

The band is known for their hybrid variation of rock, and it’s this hybrid of synthesizers and primary rock music rudiments that make up the “glassy atmospheric hum, thick synth lines, and pounding tribal drums,” on the band’s latest tracks, creating “a slowly roiling pot of moody, panoramic indie rock”, Martins said.

Martins also noted: “an even beefier bass synth matched by a bout of Bowie-esque belting by [lead vocalist] Mandagi. Though the song seems inspired by a breakup, it’s a bona fide head-bobber with tons of texture and a huge hook.”

The five-piece are looking forward to getting back into the live arena. As anybody who has seen them in recent years knows, this is where they are most at home.

The Temper Trap is Dougy Mandagi, Jonathon Aherne, Toby Dundas, Lorenzo Sillitto and Joseph Greer.
