The Temperance Movement are a British blues rock band formed in 2011 by Glasgow-born vocalist Phil Campbell and guitarists Luke Potashnick (ex-Rooster and Ben's Brother) and Paul Sayer. The rhythm section consists of former Jamiroquai bassist Nick Fyffe and the Australian-born drummer Damon Wilson, who has played with the likes of Ray Davies, The Waterboys and Feeder.[1][2] The band released their "Pride EP" in 2012, and their eponymous debut studio album was released on 16 September 2013.[3]


The Temperance Movement's first release was their "Pride EP", which came out on 10 September 2012, and featured five tracks: "Ain't No Telling", "Only Friend", "Pride", "Be Lucky" and "Lovers & Fighters".[4] The following week, the band appeared at the 2012 edition of the Sunflower Jam SuperJam at the Royal Albert Hall,[5] where, as the opening act, they played the first two tracks from their EP.[6] The band also played at Futurerock at the 100 Club (Oxford Street, London) on 9 November 2012,[7] and they embarked on a UK tour from late April to early May 2013.[8] The band's debut studio album, The Temperance Movement, was released on 16 September 2013 on Earache Records. The album features the five tracks from the "Pride EP" alongside seven other songs or nine tracks if you count the two bonus tracks when purchased from the iTunes store(Mother's Eyes and Already Know).[3] On 10 June 2014, the Temperance Movement was invited as the guest band before the Rolling Stones' concert given in Berlin (Waldbühne).
