THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT TO RELEASE 2 DISC DELUXE EDITION OF SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM

The UK's finest new rock band, THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT, will release a 2 Disc Deluxe Edition of their self-titled debut album on October 6th to coincide with the release of their next single, "Chinese Lanterns", on the same day.

"The Temperance Movement" was originally released in September 2013, debuting at number 12 in the UK album chart and had critics purring, with Mojo calling it "fresh, lithe and muscular".  With the band coming off a recent European and UK tour which culminated in opening slots for THE ROLLING STONES, the 2 Disc Deluxe Edition is an expanded version with a bonus disc containing five exclusive live tracks from the tour as well as an additional photo booklet packed with images from the band's personal archives.

The new single, "Chinese Lanterns", is a beautiful, harmony-laden acoustic song which singer Phil Campbell says is about "love's fragility and the difficulty of letting someone go".

This winter, the band go back on the road touring the UK and Europe, with their biggest London show to date at the Forum on November 21st.

See THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT live:

Nov. 16 - Bristol, UK - O2 Academy
Nov. 17 - Manchester, UK - The Ritz
Nov. 20 - Birmingham, UK - The Institute
Nov. 21 - London, UK - The Forum

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have toured non-stop since the release of their debut album, with spellbinding sets at T in the Park and Download, a sold out date at the Shepherd's Bush Empire and winning the "Best New Band" award at the Classic Rock Awards.  They are currently squirrelled away in the studio; expect a new album in 2015.
