KUALA LUMPUR: The band behind the chart-topping hit Sweet Disposition, is set to make its return to Malaysian shores on March 9. The Temper Trap which is made up of Dougy Mandagi on vocals, Jonathan Aherne on bass, Toby Dundas on drums and Joseph Greer on keyboards and guitar will be performing at The Bee, Publika. The event is jointly organised by Upfront @ The Bee and ADSC, a subdivision of The Livescape Group and supported by U Mobile and Tiger Beer.
Having performed at Future Music Festival Asia back in 2013 with over 8,000 fans crowding their stage, and then at Good Vibes Festival last year, The Temper Trap has since released its third studio album, Thick as Thieves in June 2016. The multi-award winning band had previously also won Album of the Year, Single of the year, and Best Rock Album at various Aria Music Awards.
The Temper Trap first rose to local acclaim in Melbourne, Australia in 2006 with the release of their debut EP. Their 2009 debut album Conditions, propelled by the hit anthem ‘Sweet Disposition’, was a huge success and sold nearly a million copies worldwide. Two years later, the band delivered the self-titled album, which featured the singles ‘Trembling Hands’ and ‘Need Your Love’ which was certified platinum.
More than a million albums sold; more than 150 million streams on Spotify; arena support tours with Coldplay and the Rolling Stones; gracing the stages of Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and Coachella; being nominated and winning a number of prestigious ARIA Awards in Australia, as well as receiving a nomination for best international group at the BRIT Awards. It has been a good few years for The Temper Trap.
