Ahead of the release of the 're-animation' of their debut album, 'Sun Structures
', Kettering's Temples
will be embarking on their biggest headline tour to date in November and December.
' has been re-envisioned by Beyond the Wizards Sleeve (Erol Alkan & Richard Norris) and will be released on Heavenly Recordings on Monday 10th November 2014.
Describing the record, Erol Alkan said, "Being asked to re-animate a whole album's worth of material is an honour. We (in return) wanted to create something special. A record which could be listened to in one go, from start to finish, a listening experience that is becoming increasingly rare. So as well as a host of full Beyond The Wizards Sleeve re-animations here, there are interludes, ambience, ebb and flow... each section flowing into a bigger piece.
"We tried many things along the way: spoken word sections, days out collecting field recordings, yet ended up letting the original songs and their beautiful arrangements and melodies guide us. There is so much happening under the surface of Sun Structures, and deep within each track, it was a pleasure to dive in and see what we could find. it inspired us to pick up our guitars, plug in our synthesisers and add some wizardry on top. Enjoy this trip. And it is a trip
Sun Restructured will be available as part of a deluxe CD and download re-issue package with the original album.
