"Featuring front man Phil Campbell on vocals, Nick Fyffe on bass, guitarists Luke Potashnick and Paul Sayer, and drummer Damon Wilson, The Temperance Movement are a band united. Prior to forming, the members played with legendary acts including Deep Purple, Jamiroquai, Ray Davies, Klaus Voorman, The Waterboys, James Brown and Jack Bruce. But when the five friends got together for a jam at Audio Underground in North London in 2011, everything they'd experienced as sidemen, session men, and in previous bands coalesced into alchemy. Instantly, The Temperance Movement was born."
We've been working with our good friends The Temperance Movement since the very beginning. We we there to film one of their very first jam sessions in Stoke Newington, East London. We were there to document them recording their debut album in an old fish factory turned recording studio (in just 4 days). We made their first official music video. We went on tour with them and we're still working with them now.
After being invited by Mick Jagger himself to support The Rolling Stones on part of their European tour last summer the band have just embarked on their first US tour.
Here's a look back at some of the work we've produced together...
The band's first official music video. We shot it on location in an underground basement club on the Kingsland Road in Dalston.
TAKE IT BACK
This video was cut from hours of footage we'd collected over the past couple of years working with the band - a cocktail of studio and tour footage. The aim of the video was to capture the raw energy of their live performances.
