Temples have debuted a new track by the name of ‘Strange or Be Forgotten’, taken from their forthcoming album, Volcano, which is due for release on March 3rd via Heavenly Records. You can listen to the new track below.

The song, self-produced and recorded in the band’s hometown of Kettering, is archetypal Temples and notably the closing track on the record. Beginning with a desert-y drum beat and a jangly guitar lick, Bagshaw’s voice flows angelically over the airy melodies of the track. With a catchy, repetitive chorus which is paired with spaced out synths, it immediately becomes another hit following the lead single ‘Certainty’, which the band issued towards the end of last year. Swaggering confidently towards its climax before it beautifully fades out, ‘Strange or Be Forgotten’ is a glimpse of a formidable record so near we can almost taste it.

Last autumn the band played a series of intimate shows to test out new material since their last album, Sun Structures, which came out almost three years ago. Describing the making of the new album, bassist Thomas Walmsley comments, “we discovered a lot as we went along, and the excitement at having done so radiates.” Now following the release of their new album in March, the psychedelic rock band will embark on a full-length UK and European tour in support of Volcano, including one night at London’s Brixton Electric.
