The Temper Trap
Date / Time
It was the summer of 2009 and across the lands – near and afar – the sound of ‘Sweeeeeeeet Dis-PO-sition’ rang out – on radios, at festivals, in Hollywood films, and at sold out venues. It was the song that launched Melbourne band The Temper Trap onto the world stage and it was the first taste of their stunning debut album Conditions.
The success of atmospheric anthem ‘Sweet Disposition’ is indisputable, with 5x Platinum in Australia, 3x Platinum in the UK, and Platinum in the US. The single has, to date, clocked up more than 225 million streams on Spotify alone.
Follow up hit singles ‘Fader’ (2x Platinum) and ‘Love Lost’ (Platinum), firmly cemented the band’s rise, seeing the once unknown group debut with Conditions into the Top 10 on the ARIA charts and Top 30 in the UK. The album is now certified double platinum in Australia, Gold in the UK and has sold over 750,000 globally and went on to win ARIA Awards for ‘Best Group’ and ‘Most Popular Australian Single’ for Sweet Disposition and the APRA Award for ‘Song Of The Year’ in 2010, also receiving a 2011 nomination for ‘Best International Breakthrough Artist’ at the UK Brit Awards.
Since Conditions launched The Temper Trap onto the global stage the band have moved overseas, started families, confirmed tour muso Joseph Greer as an official band member, performed on main stages of some of the biggest festivals in the world, released a further two #1 ARIA Albums, and announced the departure of Lorenzo Sillitto from the band, and extensively toured globally.
The Temper Trap will be supported at both shows by Sydney band The Lazy Eyes. The Lazy Eyes are Harvey (vocals, guitar, keys), Itay (vocals, guitar), Blake (bass) and Noah (drums). They met at Newtown High School of the Performing Arts at 15 years old, now 18 and all above legal drinking age, they are getting ready to officially release their first music as a band.
