Temple Balls is an energetic 5-piece hard rock band from Oulu, Finland.
For the past couple of years Temple Balls has kept busy, both in the studio and on the stage. Opening for such bands like Queen, Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, the band has proven to be more than able to handle big stages as well. Wheter it be a big festival or your local club’s stage, the band will set your friggin’ pants on fire. The first official single ’ Hell And Feelin’ Fine ’ was released on September 1st 2016. The debut album was recorded at Karma Sound Studios (Thailand) on May 2016, and saw the daylight on February 24th 2017.
’Traded Dreams’ was released via finnish record label Ranka Kustannus whose captain is the founder of Spinefarm Records – the label behind such acts like Nightwish, Children of Bodom etc. After the release in Finland the album was put out in Germany on May 5th via SoulFood Music and December 15th in Japan via Ward records. The album was produced by Tobias Lindell, who is known for his collaborations with such bands like Europe, Mustasch and H.E.A.T.
First single of the upcoming second album “Leap of faith” was released in October 2017. The band also played in Japan for the first time and did a 5-day tour of Ukraine in late 2017.
