The Temperance Movement is the debut studio album by British rock band The Temperance Movement. The album, which was released on 16 September 2013, was recorded in the space of just four days at the Fish Factory, Willesden, North West London.[1][2][3] The album is available on three formats: CD, cassette and vinyl. The standard edition vinyl is black, while there are limited edition white, blue and clear LPs.[2] It was also made available to download via iTunes.[3]

According to guitarist Luke Potashnick, The Temperance Movement "is about friendship, good times and redemption – losing your way, then finding it – over and over." He describes the album as "very song-driven", and he insists that the band had "no commercial agenda" in mind when making the album — they merely wanted "to write and perform good music that was real."[1]

As of January 2016, the album has sold 31,645 copies.[4]
