Temples share “Strange or Be Forgotten” video

Temples release "Strange or Be Forgotten" video

Leading into the release of Temples’ sophomore album, Volcano, out March 3 through Fat Possum, the band is presenting the video for second single, “Strange or Be Forgotten.” The video stars the band and various performance artists, and is directed by James Beale. Bassist Tom Walmsley says about the video: “Art is always on trial, so we wanted to interrogate some of the finest performing artists around. Playing the role of society, despondent and disinterested, we try and capture the un-capturable – the human spirit.”

Upon completion of a special North American in-store tour, Temples — James Bagshaw (vocals, guitar), Tom Walmsley (bass, backing vocals), Sam Toms (drums) and Adam Smith (keys) — kick off the Desert Daze Caravan tour tonight in San Francisco. They’ve just announced a second North American headline tour for May, which will take them throughout the southeast, and east coast, including two shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.
