Albums Of The Week: The Temperance Movement | Caught on Stage Live & Acoustic (2022)

The bluesy British rock classicists compile a collection of fine, fiery live recordings.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:The Temperance Movement are a rare entity. A homegrown British talent with a career built upon a solid foundation of doing it right. Hitting the road, touring, and releasing expertly crafted albums in between.

Their story began proper in 2012 with the self-release of their debut EP Pride. This was followed by their self-titled debut full-length. 2016’s White Bear came next and in 2018 the band scored their highest-ever chart position when A Deeper Cut landed in the U.K. Top 10 at position 6.

A Deeper Cut is itself simultaneously anthemic, defiant and cathartic. It bears echoes of the great rock ’n’ roll icons of the ’60s and ’70s — The Faces and Led Zeppelin, Free and The Rolling Stones (whose singer Mick Jagger gave them the ultimate accolade when he handpicked The Temperance Movement to support the band in Europe in 2014 and in the U.S. in 2015).

This special release Caught On Stage – Live & Acoustic’features a collection of rare live tracks recorded from various locations, including intimate acoustic live shows, radio sessions and rehearsal rooms, compiled with the help of founding member and guitarist Paul Sayer.”
