Temple Songs change name to The Pink Teens

Manchester-based quartet Temple Songs have revealed that they have changed their name to The Pink Teens.

After making the announcement via their Facebook and Twitter pages yesterday, the Far Out favourites have asked fans to bear with them through the transition.

Some of their upcoming shows are being listed under the old moniker, while others will see them take to the stage as The Pink Teens with immediate effect – a factor that was apparently influenced by promoters’ reluctance to rely on ticket sales from an unfamiliar band name.

Regardless of the name change, The Pink Teens have established themselves as one of the most exciting new acts in Manchester, blending a punk-style ethos with infectious pop melodies in a way that few others are able to harness.

What’s more, The Pink Teens recently made their debut album Atonal Noise available as a free download via Music Glue.

Anyone wanting to catch the Pink Teens live can do so at these upcoming dates.
