Celebrating their 10th year anniversary as a signed band TEMPLETON PEK from Birmingham UK, show no signs of slowing down, if anything this new 5th studio album is some of their strongest material to date.
“Lyrically it’s quite dark and very current in today’s fractured climate, it’s as close to a concept album as we come” says vocalist Neal Mitchell.
Produced by Davey Warsop (Bad Cop Bad Cop, Vanishing Line) the fellow Birmingham native now based in Long Beach recorded the album at Hurley Studios in Costa Mesa, California.
The band added “We really pushed ourselves on this record in terms of Songwriting, the material and our individual performances as a whole. Davey was instrumental in all of that right down from pre-production to pushing us in the studio, and I think that really shows in the album.”
A seasoned touring band they have shared stages with The Offspring, Rise Against, Bad Religion, Sum 41, NOFX, Alkaline Trio, Lagwagon, Millencolin, Zebrahead, Ignite, Pennywise and many more touring mainland Europe and UK.
Last year they joined the sold out Punk Summer Nationals Tour in the UK alongside The Offspring and Bad Religion which culminated at a sold out Hammersmith Apollo to 6,500 people.
With eyes on the rest of the world the band’s hunger is as big as ever as they embark on the start of a new era.
