Temples Share New Single ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’


Temples will release a new album entitled Volcano via Fat Possum Records on March 3. The U.K.-based rock band has shared a new single from the LP, the track “Strange Or Be Forgotten.”

Temples guitarist James Bagshaw produced the 12-song Volcano, which is a follow-up to their well-received 2014 debut album Sun Structures. The band previously shared the single “Certainty.” Noisey premiered “Strange Or Be Forgotten” with bassist Tom Warmsley explaining the song to the outlet like this:

We’re continually inundated with pressure in modern life to have to make something of ourselves and leave behind a legacy in this world. “Strange Or Be Forgotten” is our way of questioning the necessity of having to be all so individual and unique — when really it’s our true selves that should be celebrated.
