The UK punk rock trio from Birmingham, TEMPLETON PEK, have recently finished recording their forthcoming album “Signs” in the States with producer Shep Goodman. The album is due for release on 29th April on Century Media Records.
The band comments: “We are beyond excited to finally announce the release of our brand new album “Signs.” Predominantly recorded last year in New York USA with Producer Shep Goodman (Four Years Strong, Bayside), and also featuring two tracks from our UK sessions with Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, INME). It’s a collection of songs that we feel perfectly represents our sound and us for both familiar ears to the band and new audiences alike.”
“Signs” will immediately resonate with people that are no strangers with TEMPLETON PEK‘s sound. Comparisons can and will be drawn to the likes of Rise Against, Funeral For A Friend, Story Of The Year, or even the early days of the Foo Fighters galvanized with influences from the 90’s Fat Wreck and So-Cal movements. The new album is a blatant in-your-face display of TEMPLETON PEK‘s confidence in their art and their unapologetic belief in what they do.
TEMPLETON PEK spent the summer of 2011 supporting USA giants Rise Against across Europe and appearing alongside Good Charlotte and Bullet for My Valentine at major festivals. The band signed to Century Media Records and headed into Modern World Studios with producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers /Bullet For My Valentine) to create their EP “Slow Down For Nothing” which was released in 2012 and was supported with live dates alongside SUM 41 and Four Year Strong.
The band has already debuted the single “What Are You Waiting For” from this EP. To listen to the track, head over to Century Media’s official YouTube: http://youtu.be/ANx6gk8ZmPk
