The Temperance Movement are a British blues rock band formed in 2011 by Glasgow-born vocalist Phil Campbell and guitarists Luke Potashnick and Paul Sayer. The rhythm section consists of bassist Nick Fyffe and the Australian-born drummer Damon Wilson. The band released their Pride EP in 2012, and their eponymous debut studio album was released on 16 September 2013. Collectively the band have a rich history of experience, having previously played with Rooster, Ben’s Brother, Jamiroquai, Ray Davies, The Waterboys and Feeder.
The Temperance Movement's first release was their Pride EP, which came out on 10 September 2012, and featured five tracks: "Ain't No Telling", "Only Friend", "Pride", "Be Lucky" and "Lovers & Fighters". The following week, the band appeared at the 2012 edition of the Sunflower Jam SuperJam at the Royal Albert Hall, where, as the opening act, they played the first two tracks from their EP. The band also played at Futurerock at the 100 Club (Oxford Street, London) on 9 November 2012, and they embarked on a UK tour from late April to early May 2013. The band's debut studio album, The Temperance Movement, was released on 16 September 2013 on Earache Records.
