History[edit]

The Peep Tempel was formed in 2008 as a two-piece by singer-songwriter Blake Scott and drummer Steven Carter who were neighbours at the time.[1] As a two-piece the band recorded in their own home studio and released two 7-inch singles through the imprint Wing Sing.

In 2011 The Peep Tempel invited Matthew Duffy, who had recorded the band's first two singles along with Clinton Kraus, to join the band to play bass guitar for their debut studio album. As a three-piece, The Peep Tempel recorded their debut studio album in 2011 with Clinton Kraus and released the LP The Peep Tempel in 2012 through Wing Sing. Their debut album was nominated in the category of Best Independent Hard Rock or Punk Album at the Australian Independent Record Labels Association 2012 Jägermeister Independent Music Awards.[2][3] In late 2011 Stewart Rayner joined the band to play bass guitar and during 2012 the band toured both in Australia and Europe as a three-piece.[4][5]

In 2013 the band recorded the Modern Professional EP with Clinton Kraus which was released through Wing Sing in June 2013.[6]

In 2014 the band recorded their second album Tales with Clinton Kraus and Anna Laverty, which was released through Wing Sing in October 2014.[7] Tales was shortlisted for the 2014 Australian Music Prize and nominated in the category of Best Independent Hard Rock, Heavy or Punk Album at the Australian Independent Record Labels Association 2015 Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards.[8][9][10] "Carol" a song featured on Tales was shortlisted for the 2014 Song of the Year APRA Awards (Australia) and nominated in the category of Best Song at the 2015 The Age Music Victoria Awards.[11][12]
