Great albums by Rock bands are pretty thin on the ground at the moment but the debut release this year by The Temperance Movement is one great album.
Formed in 2011, the band have a blues rock sound which reminds me of a British Black Crowes. The album took a little while to grow on me as I haven't listened to much Rock, especially British, over the past few years as nothing has really excited me since The Answer's Rise back in 2006ish.
But these guys are The Real Deal. They have certainly caught the imagination of current rock fans who have been starved of a really good British Rock Band and have been awarded Classic Rock Magazine's New Band of the Year 2013. Their recent tour has been a complete sell out with the band needing to move into larger venues almost immediately.
They first released an EP, Pride, was followed by their debut album released in September of this year. It's a classic mixture of Rock & Blues with varying tempos and shades. So if you're in the market for a bit of good old fashioned British Rock then look these guys up. I don't think you'll find a better rock band around at the moment. And if you get a chance to see them, do yourself a favour and go.
