After releasing their debut album Sun Structures in February this year on seminal label Heavenly Recordings, Temples, a four-piece hailing from Kettering became one of the most talked-about bands in the UK indie rock scene.
With a heavy psychedelic rock sound that saw them championed by Johnny Marr, Noel Gallagher and other rock luminaries, they have played alongside the likes of Suede, Kasabian and The Vaccines, earning them a dedicated following of loyal fans.
Comparisons to 60s psych-rock like The Byrds, and more modern bands such as the Flaming Lips and Tame Impala have been made, placing Temples at the crest of a wave of new bands exploring the ‘neo-psych’ sound.
On the even of the release of Sun Re-structured, a remix album complementing their debut featuring re-rubbed versions of their songs by producers such as Phantasy’s Erol Alkan and Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (aka Richard Norris), the band set forth announced a UK-wide tour. DF Concerts and The Arches are proud to present a night of full-on pysch-rock wonder, as one ofthe UK’s most exciting, hotly-tipped bands hit Glasgow.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
