The Trouble With Templeton have announced tour dates to support the release of their new album Rookie. The band threw a solid punch earlier this year with the theatrical video clip for ‘Like a Kid’. More recently the band put out this single, along with this highly polished, thoughtful clip:
‘You Are New’ is heavy on the feels, and a 6/8 time signature gives it a beautiful hypnotic beat. The band are proving themselves able to play with melodies in an interesting way, which I hope shows throughout the rest of their album. When I interviewed drummer Ritchie Daniell in May, he promised a “large palate of music” on Rookie. This looks a promise well kept, with no compromise made on the quality of song-writing. “Each song is dealing with relationships but from different perspectives.” Rookie is scheduled for release on August 2.
The tour will take place in August, reaching Brisbane on Friday August 30 for a performance at The Zoo. The Trouble With Templeton are supported by Holy Holy and you can buy tickets, with or without the album here. You can order tickets for other shows or pre-order the new album at the band’s website.
