TEMPLETON PEK have spent the summer of 2011 supporting USA giants – Rise Against across Europe and appearing alongside Good Charlotte, Bullet for My Valentine at major festivals. The Band signed to People Like You Records and headed into Modern World Studios with producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers/Lost Prophets/Bullet For My Valentine) to create the brand new EP “Slow Down For Nothing”
TEMPLETON PEK about “Slow Down For Nothing” (EP):
Signs: The first song we wrote post "Scratches & Scars" sessions, a great summary of the band with cross sections of different styles which gives a good taste of what we are about. Theme-wise; The song is about looking forward and not clinging to the past, a theme that resonates throughout this EP, as we feel it's a real transition for us.
What Are You Waiting For: We knew straight away that this song would work well with real strings, it turned out better than we expected, very epic. For us this is the most radio friendly song on the EP, and again has quite a few styles in there including an uplifting middle eight. This song is about having patience and picking your battles to win the war. Sometimes you need to lose to win.
Clarity: A powerful anthem of taking control of your own destiny and moving onwards beyond doubt, this song translates great live.
Call To Disarm: A strong opening riff and pacey feel with a nice breakdown section before unleashing to the end. This song is about making your own luck and not waiting or relying on someone to do your work for you.
Conflict In Memory: This song is about how different people perceive the same thing. Everyone's recollections are their own. A very anthemic chorus breaks up a vicious verse accompanied by some haunting strings.
Since this industrious unit’s inception back in early 2008, TEMPLETON PEK have certainly made a name for themselves as a seasoned touring outfit, racking up impressive supports with the likes of Mindless Self Indulgence, Pennywise, Bad Religion, Rise Against, Funeral For A Friend, Killswitch Engage, Taking Back Sunday, No Use For A Name, All Time Low, Zebrahead, Millencolin and Story Of The Year. In a little over two years, they’ve bagged arena shows on Taste Of Chaos and Give It A Name Tours and relentlessly headlined shows throughout the UK and Europe. Last year they also toured with Epitaph’s Welsh crew The Blackout, spanning the depths of Luxembourg, France, Germany, Austria, Czech Rep, Switzerland and Belgium.
TEMPLETON PEK’s debut album “No Association”, unleashed during the winter of 2008, garnered much critical acclaim, gathering famous fans along the way including Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) quoting the album as “an excellent album...razor sharp nuggets.” The band also enjoyed expansive media coverage from the likes of MTV2, Scuzz, Kerrang! Radio, XFM, BBC 6music, Rocksound, Big Cheese, SLAM! and Kerrang!
The band’s eagerly awaited second album, “Scratches & Scars” raised the bar both musically and lyrically. With driving rhythms and almost effortlessly woven punk-rock melodies, the three-piece have produced an album of boundless sincerity packed with punchy riffs and peppered with alluring hooks, all set against a modern-day backdrop. From the anthemic and fiercely rhythmic first single “Barriers” which racked up Record Of The Week on Kerrang! Radio, to the bone crushing melodic hardcore beatings of “Made To Waste”, through to the innovate dynamism and astute guile of “Red_Lights_Flash” (which is also featured on the Colin McCrae: Dirt 2 game soundtrack alongside the likes of Biffy Clyro, Queens Of the Stone Age and You Me At Six), “Scratches & Scars” is a clear statement of intent fuelled by a candid and earnest driving DIY ethos. Recorded, written and produced solely by the band, it’s evident that the progressive trio are not manufactured, are not dictated to for how they should sound, and strive with integrity towards uncharted pathways.

Welcome back to DEMENTED ARE GO and “Welcome Back To Insanity Hall!"
What is there to say about DEMENTED ARE GO that hasn’t already been said or made up? Not a lot. They are a band that has inflicted their twisted version of rock ‘n’ roll on the world for 3 decades, from the legendary Klub Foot via clubs, squats
and festivals they have built up a loyal following of Psychobillies, Metalheads, Punks, Goths, Geeks and Freaks who just can’t get enough of their unique sound.
Always a live act not to be missed, their catalogue of releases over the years is proof that the band is always evolving and
never restricted to one scene. The reason for the bands longevity and popularity is down to one man, Sparky. A one man riot who sold his soul for Rock‘n’Roll! Uncompromising, unpredictable with a voice that sounds like he’s been gargling hot
gravel he is instantly recognisable as one of rock ‘n’ rolls true leaders. How he has kept the band going for 30 years is beyond explanation but now in 2012 and after almost 7 years since their last LP “Hellbilly Storm”, DEMENTED ARE GO have finally produced their hardest material to date.
“Welcome Back To Insanity Hall” is their latest offering and as with all things Demented the road to “Insanity Hall” was
a very, very rocky one indeed. As well as the obligatory line-up problems, the band experienced tragedy on a scale they had never imagined. Having rehearsed the new material over the winter of 2010-11 they entered StudioVon Buktu in Wuppertal
(Germany) in the spring to lay down the tracks with much respected engineer/producer Tim Buktu.
Tim had remixed the “Hellucifernation” LP back in the late 90’s and was much admired by the band. Having taken the rough tapes to Sweden to mix during the summer on his return to Wuppertal Tim suffered a heartattack and died aged just 53. With the band still in shock and devastated by his loss People Like You Records pushed hard to get the record finished and by the end of the year it was finally ready and another chapter in the DEMENTED ARE GO story is about to begin..
