The Temper Trap announce Falls Festival Sideshows

The Temper Trap have announced details of their first Australian headline shows in over a year. The Melbourne-via-London indie four-piece will return home to headline this year’s Falls Festival and play two very special sideshows at Melbourne’s 170 Russell St. on Monday 5 January and Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Tuesday 6 January.

The past 12 months have proven incredibly productive for The Temper Trap, as work on their as yet untitled third album is well underway.

Remerging on the live scene in June this year, the band sold out three consecutive nights at London’s Oslo, performing album number three material for the first time and in the process showcasing an exciting new direction that remains true to their signature sound.

Expect The Temper Trap in fine form and festival ready after well received recent shows in North America including sold out dates in New York City, Los Angeles and Toronto as well as appearances at Lollapalooza, Osheaga and Squamish festivals where they played in front of tens of thousands.

Joining The Temper Trap at both shows will be Sydney trio, Mansionair and British singer-songwriter, Charlotte OC.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch The Temper Trap up close and personal at intimate venues in Sydney and Melbourne this January.

Tickets on sale Thursday, 2 October.

‘It was a dark and sweaty show… their signature booming electronics with a stripped back acoustic sound. Working greatly it provided depth… that will hopefully be reiterated on the third release.’ – Gigwise

‘It was hard not to enjoy yourself when the crowd and the band were so in sync throughout the night.’ – Live In Limbo

‘Mandagi’s vocals proving unbeatable… Temper Trap deserve to be one of our biggest acts around’ – FasterLouder

‘The Temper Trap have found a very delicate balance that moves their sound forward without self-sabotaging why the world fell in love with them.’ – Herald Sun
