Once in awhile, you come across something unexpected and it turns out to be something amazing and boy, did this band Tempt deliver!
The line-up of 4 features, Zach Allen on lead vocals, Harrison Marcello on guitar, Nicholas Burrows on drums & Chris Gooden on bass. In June of 2016, they released their debut album, “Runaway” which was chocked FULL of melodic rock with some added grit which gave them a unique sound. There is not one song on this album that I didn’t like!!
Apart from their own material, Tempt covers some awesome classic 80’s rock such as Def Leppard’s “Women” & “Bringin’ on the Heartbreak” along with some contemporary music covers like Taylor Swift’s “I Did Something Bad” and The Weekend’s “Starboy” which they threw their own rock spin on and made it totally their own. Allen says, “We’re taking rock and roll and electric guitars and bringing them to a generation who have never heard them before by rocking out their favorite artists”. Not an easy task, yet they have done it and they did it well!
Tempt plans to keep tracks coming on streaming services as well as posting live, performance videos. If you haven’t heard them yet, what are you waiting for!! This band is a breath of fresh air and I expect bigger and better things for them in the future!!!
