NEWS: THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT Is Bringing The “Firepower” To The U.S. For A New Tour Dates

| 27 July 2016 | Reply


“If Rock ‘n’ Roll is to be saved, or even needs saving, bands like this will lead the way…The band comes across as if they were spoon fed classic guitar rock since the day they were born, and the beauty is that they are 100% real – nothing slick, nothing corporate about them…organic…Yup, this is rock as pure as the driven snow and sure, they wear their roots on their sleeves, but they wear them damned well. They have a genuineness that harkens back to The Stones, Free, then later The Black Crowes, and now into the glorious teens. Phil Campbell is THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT’s frontman and he has the full package—great voice, looks like he belongs in front of a mic, and he writes straight from the heart. His passion and enthusiasm comes across like a young Joe Cocker, half in control, and halfway to the moon…As long as there are bands like THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT, rock ‘n’ roll will never die.” –

Pretty much sums up everything you need to know about THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT.

While the U.K. band’s summer U.S. trek recently concluded and garnered rave reviews at every stop, they’re not going to stay away for very long.  Touring in support of their critically acclaimed second album, WHITE BEAR, THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT (vocalist Phil Campbell, bassist Nick Fyffe, guitarists Paul Sayer and Matt White, drummer Damon Wilson) will continue to bring the raucous new rock ‘n roll animal to the U.S. starting September 17 in Portland, ME at the Portland House of Music and Events and concluding October 18 in Destin, FL at Club L.A.

WHITE BEAR–released July 15 on Fantasy Records–is the highly anticipated follow up to their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which spawned the anthemic hit single, “Take It Back.” Fueled by their inclusion in  iHeartRadio’s ‘On The Verge’ developing artist program, the song quickly reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart last spring.  Additionally, the band was tapped by The Rolling Stones to be the opening act at their show in Orlando, FL on June 12, 2015 at the Orlando Citrus Bowl.  They had previously opened for The Rolling Stones in 2014 in Berlin, Vienna, Zurich and Dusseldorf.

After garnering stellar reviews overseas, WHITE BEAR has added praise by the U.S. media to the mix.
