The Temper Trap are pleased to announce that Eugene McGuinness will join them for their final English headline show of 2012 at Hammersmith Apollo on Thursday 4th October.
McGuinness's second full length album 'The Invitation To The Voyage', released in August, is an unabashedly bombastic, brave and, above all, thoroughly contemporary update on a distinctly English strand of lyrical, gently fantastical pop songwriting that locates and celebrates the beautiful and the bizarre in modern life, as demonstrated by latest single 'Harlequinade'.
The Temper Trap's Hammersmith Apollo show follows four months of sold out shows across the globe, and is the final show of their major European September/October tour.
The band recently completed sell-out tours of the US, UK and Australia in March, April and May of this year, including two sold out shows at London's Koko. Currently completing a run of European summer festivals, which have included UK appearances at T in the Park, Truck Festival as and a show at Somerset House that sold out in less than 48 hours, they have also been confirmed as support to Coldplay on their stadium tour of Australia this autumn.
The Temper Trap's self-titled second album was released in May via Infectious Music and is the follow up to 2009's debut long-player 'Conditions' which featured the singles Science of Fear, Fader, Love Lost and Sweet Disposition. Their epic new single Trembling Hands from the new album is out now.
