“Why it rules: It punches you in the guts with its rhythm section, slaps you across the face with a slapped (no pick!) guitar, grabs you by the ears and shakes your head half-joking, half-menacing, half-cut. The Drones finally have contenders in the category of Raucous ‘Strayan Live Act.”
Herald Sun’s Mikey Cahill – Tales LP
Melbourne’s powerhouse The Peep Tempel farewelled 2015 with a searing performance at the Meredith Music Festival, where they earned the coveted “Boot” in an epic and typically brash performance. To celebrate, The Peep Tempel will perform two shows only, one in Sydney and the other in their hometown at the Shadow Electric’s newest venue Estonian House on February 18, before they head back into the studio record the follow-up to their critically acclaimed sophomore release Tales.
With an EP and two LP’s under their belt, Blake Scott, Steven Carter and Stewart Rayner are The Peep Tempel, one of Australia’s hardest working bands. Having formed back in 2008, the three-piece have gone from strength to strength since the release of their debut LP The Peep Tempel in February 2012, an EP Modern Professional in June 2013 and their second LP Tales in October 2014 through Melbourne imprint Wing
Their debut album was nominated in the category of Best Independent Hard Rock or Punk Album at the Australian Independent Record Labels Association 2012 Jägermeister Independent Music Awards. In 2014, the band recorded their second album Tales, which was released through Wing Sing in October 2014. Tales went on to be shortlisted for the 2014 Australian Music Prize and nominated in the category of Best Independent Hard Rock, Heavy or Punk Album at the Australian Independent Record Labels Association 2015 Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards. Breakout single ‘Carol’ off Tales was shortlisted for the 2014 Song of the Year APRA Awards and nominated in the category
of Best Song at the 2015 The Age Music Victoria Awards.
