Did you miss the many releases we had last week due to your crazy schedule or did you already have your party pants on @ noon on a Friday? Fear not. Just in time for a Treat-Yourself-Tuesday, we’ve got a flurry of new releases to check out below!
Last night The Temper Trap made their triumphant return to late night television performing ‘Fall Together‘ on Conan. Click through below to check out the live performance!
In the Temper Trap’s new video for “Fall Together,” the rock band gets handcuffed together, dive off some cliffs, and become blood brothers in the picturesque setting of Milos, Greece.
“Four companions embark on an odyssey together, enduring challenges and rites of passage that will bond them in blood and experience,” the Temper Trap’s drummer Toby Dundas says of the video’s concept. The clip was directed by Kris Moyes (Beck, Franz Ferdinand).
The song is the lead single from the band’s upcoming third album “Thick as Thieves,” out this Friday, June 10. For the first time, they collaborated with outside songwriters, working withJustin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Sia) and Ben Allen (Animal Collective).
Dundas says “Fall Together” is indicative of that album’s sound, but also stands on its own. “It’s got an energy and spirit to it that carries through the rest of the album but sonically it’s got a more pop vibe than some of the other tunes,” he says.
The Temper Trap will be on tour throughout the summer in Europe and the Far East, before kicking off a club tour in the U.S. starting on Sept. 19 at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland, Ore. — WSJ
