Temples would kick off as a casual music project between friends and longtime collaborators James Edward Bagshaw and Thomas Edison James Walmsley. Both had been prolific performers on the local England rock scene, fronting their own respective bands before working together on indie music project The Moons. The two would start collaborating once again in the early '10s, publicizing themselves via YouTube as they slowly began to build up a small yet rabid fan base throughout the United Kingdom. The band's ground roots promotional style would eventually catch the eyes and ears of record execs at Heavenly Recordings, giving them the opportunity for a big mainstream breakout as the band enlisted the help of percussionist Samuel Lloyd Toms and keyboardist Adam Smith. After releasing their first hit single through Heavenly Recordings, the band began on their first ever set of live tours as the four piece lineup began making waves all throughout the European rock scene.
The band rapidly rose to widespread international acclaim, performing alongside like minded musicians such as The Vaccines, Mystery Jets, Suede, and Kasabian. Over the next two years the band took their first trips overseas as a band as they made their way to North America and Australia, receiving prime billing at some of the most celebrated festivals throughout the world, including the legendary Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival held annually in Indio, California.
Today, the band continues on their rapid ascent to the highest echelons of the rock music world, with a global following that eagerly awaits every one of Temples new tour announcements or record releases. The band's work currently spans one LP, two Extended Plays and five hit singles, with the band's popularity growing rapidly with every new release.
The band's debut full length album would come two years after their appearance on the mainstream music scene, a 53 minute tome of musical excellence that drew widespread praise from critics and fans everywhere. The album featured the production tutelage of the visionary James Bagshaw, and was released on the Heavenly Records label. Critics would rain praise upon the album, including a four star rating from AllMusic, 9/10 from Clash Magazine, a near perfect four nad a half stars from musicOMH, and an 8/10 from NME magazine. The album charted worldwide, including making appearances on Australian, Austrian, Dutch, Belgian, French, German, Irish, and Swiss music boards, eventually clocking in at #2 on the UK Independent Album chart and #31 on the US Independent Album boards. The album features a slew of fundamental Temples hits, including "Shelter Song", "Keep in the Dark", "Sun Structures", "Colours to Life", "Fragment's", and "The Golden Throne".
Legend of rock Noel Gallagher has criticised the lack of support for Temples from the domestic UK music industry. Among his complaints is not enough radioplay for the band on BBC Radio 1.
Temples have become familiar faces in US popular culture. They made appearances on The Tonight show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Ellen Degeneres Show, performing their hit "Shelter Song" for both performances
