EDITORS’ NOTES

This self-titled album of old-school hard rock, blues, and R&B has kicked around other parts of the world since 2013, building up the reputation of star-in-the-making vocalist Phil Campbell. The Glasgow-born singer brings to mind elements of The Faces, AC/DC, Free, and other road-worn heroes. Their classic rock earned them an invitation to open for The Rolling Stones—and hearing the twin-guitar attack of Paul Sayer and Luke Potashnick, it’s easy to imagine this Movement taking hold in America’s heartland. “Only a Friend,” “Know for Sure,” “Morning Riders,” and “Take It Back” prove that hard rock still has plenty of life.

About The Temperance Movement

A British hard rock, blues, and R&B band formed in 2011, the Temperance Movement consists of Glasgow-born lead singer Phil Campbell, guitarists Luke Potashnick and Paul Sayer, bassist Nick Fyffe, and Australia-born drummer Damon Wilson. The group's powerful live shows garnered them a solid fan base, and they signed with metal label Earache Records, releasing an EP, Pride, in 2012 and following it with a self-titled full-length, The Temperance Movement (which included the five tracks from the EP plus seven new tracks), in the fall of 2013. After touring extensively for two years -- including a support slot for the Rolling Stones -- they headed back into the studio for their second album, White Bear, which saw release in late 2015. The following year, guitarist Potashnick left the band, replaced by Matt White, while drummer Damon Wilson also bowed out at the end of 2016 to focus on family life, and was replaced by Simon Lea. 2017 saw the newly refreshed line-up enter the studio with producer Sam Miller -- who had worked on the band's previous releases -- to record their third album. The resulting A Deeper Cut was released at the beginning of 2018. ~ Steve Leggett
