Temples share exclusive behind-the scenes video from their American tour


The enigmatic Temples have offered a glimpse into tour life by sharing a behind-the scenes video from on the road of their latest American tour.

“We took a camera on tour and instead of having a film-maker, we just picked up the camera when we fancied it,” frontman James Bagshaw told NME. “This is a fly on the wall insight into one of our South American/North American tours! You can’t really fully capture what touring is like through film, but this is a small glimpse into our travels.”

Temples, who shared their second studio album Volcano to rapturous applause, added single ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ to the below video.

“We’re continually inundated with pressure in modern life to have to make something of ourselves and leave behind a legacy in this world,” bassist Tom Walmsley of the track. “‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ is our way of questioning the necessity of having to be all so individual and unique – when really it’s our true selves that should be celebrated.”
