Info: Birmingham's threepiece will release their second full length called SCRATCHES AND SCARS on February 18th all across Europe. They do not slow down, but keep up to their uptempo tunes with soaring melodies.
Again, TEMPLETON PEK convince due to their energetic and powerful songwriting skills making use of the two vocalists Neal and Kev. SCRATCHES AND SCARS is a bit more melancholic than NO ASSOCIATION, but it never misses to hit you directly in your face with catchy melodies and aggressive punkrock beats and guitar riffs.
The band’s eagerly awaited second album, “Scratches & Scars” raised the bar both musically and lyrically. With driving rhythms and almost effortlessly woven punk-rock melodies, the three-piece have produced an album of boundless sincerity packed with punchy riffs and peppered with alluring hooks, all set against a modern-day backdrop. From the anthemic and fiercely rhythmic first single “Barriers” which racked up Record Of The Week on Kerrang! Radio, to the bone crushing melodic hardcore beatings of “Made To Waste”, through to the innovate dynamism and astute guile of “Red_Lights_Flash” (which is also featured on the Colin McCrae: Dirt 2 game soundtrack alongside the likes of Biffy Clyro, Queens Of the Stone Age and You Me At Six), “Scratches & Scars” is a clear statement of intent fuelled by a candid and earnest driving DIY ethos. Recorded, written and produced solely by the band, it’s evident that the progressive trio are not manufactured, are not dictated to for how they should sound, and strive with integrity towards uncharted pathways.
