The Temper Trap to Return With Second Album in May
After a nearly three-year wait between albums, Australia's the Temper Trap are ready to treat fans to their second album. Titled simply 'The Temper Trap,' the 12-track collection is scheduled for a May 18 release.
The band discussed the details of the new album with NME, describing it as a "dark, synth led" record. According to guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto, the pressure of following up their debut -- which included the hit single 'Sweet Disposition' -- weighed heavily on the group. "There's a huge expectation from our label and fans to record another song as big as 'Sweet Disposition,'" he admitted. "That puts pressure on you to succeed."
The band has lined up an eight-date UK tour in support of the album, which is preceded by leadoff single 'Rabbit Hole' (video below). For more information on ticket sales -- which start tomorrow (March 9) -- visit NME. The full track listing for 'The Temper Trap' is as follows:
'Need Your Love'
'This Isn’t Happiness'
'Where Do We Go From Here'
'I'm Gonna Wait'
'Leaving Heartbreak Hotel'
