The list of dates is as follows:

The album was recorded at home, in the box-room of James's house in Kettering, an end terrace with a blessedly forgiving neighbour. "I'm always apologising to him for the noise, but he says, 'It's not noise, it's music,'" says James. The band aim for Jack Nietzche production on a DIY budget - and succeed. "It's similar to Joe Meek - he used to record vocals in his bathroom in his flat on Holloway Road," says Tom. "The way I see it, there aren't any limitations any more," says James. "If you know what you want to achieve, there's always a way around it."
Temples are: James Bagshaw (vocals & guitar),  Tom Warmsley (bass & backing vocals),  Sam Toms (drums) & Adam Smith(keys).
