New Music From The Temper Trap

tempertrap

The Temper Trap’s eagerly awaited third studio album Thick As Thieves is set for release June 10th on Glassnote Records. The band has released plans for an extensive North American tour in September/October following a series of select album release shows (SF, LA, NYC) in June. Tickets will be available for public sale beginning today via thetempertrap.com.  A full listing of the dates can be found below.

The album’s anthemic lead single Fall Together– dubbed “a powerhouse” tune by Billboard – has been given a dance-floor ready update by fellow Aussie act Just A Gent. The “Fall Together” Just A Gent Remix premiered and you can check that out below.

Thick As Thieves marks the first time The Temper Trap has collaborated with outside songwriters in their history, with striking results. Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Sia, Bat For Lashes) worked on “Fall Together”, whilst the album also features collaborations with Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), Malay, co-writer & producer of Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange and Pascal Gabriel (Ladyhawke, Goldfrapp). Working with these exceptional producers and co-writers allowed The Temper Trap to explore a new musical ground while remaining true to their inimitable signature sound.
