ROCK GOD’S DEF LEPPARD SHARE TEMPT’S COVER OF “WOMEN” GIVING THE YOUNG BAND SOME SERIOUS RECOGNITION!
 
NYC based rockers Tempt are releasing their first official video and they are getting an extra boost from rock legends Def Leppard who shouted out their video cover on their social media as an “Awesome Job”! The magnanimous Leps’ and their fans are embracing young Tempt’s personality, passion and perseverance, breathing much needed life into every rocker’s heart. Social media is over 500,000 views and climbing! The comments shared on Def Leppard’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts in response to their praise of the young band prove that Rock and Roll is alive and well.
 
“The Hysteria album is my Sgt. Peppers, the songwriting, the playing , the arrangements and the production are just amazing”, said guitarist Harrison Marcello. “My iTunes counter has me at 10,000 listens and I’m still learning from it.”  “Ringo Starr recently lamented the fact that young bands were not being helped out by more established artists anymore, added singer Zach Allen “but here are the Def Leppard guys extending a helping hand to us and it means so much especially when we are right now releasing our video for “Under My Skin.”
 
The video for “Under My Skin” was shot on location throughout New York City. It features the band performing in a classic Chrysler 300 as they travel through their hometown ending in Times Square. “The response we got from people was nuts, exclaimed drummer, Nick Burrows. “Everywhere we went on the shoot people were just digging the music and had huge smiles on their faces. We all had a great time.”

TEMPT Make Waves With 'Runaway' Debut on Rock Candy Records

TEMPT 'RUNAWAY' CANDYMAN005 - A BRAND NEW front line release from Rock Candy Records available right now.
 
THOSE OF YOU who follow the world of Rock Candy would have noticed that we have never issued material from new artists. Indeed, our speciality is primarily to shine a spotlight on reissues - records that we feel, in one way or another, were vastly overlooked at the time or are of such a high quality that they needed to be re-examined and brought back into focus, buffed-up and given a truly five star re-appraisal. Of course, like every label, we do get many hopefuls brandishing new music but, sad to say, the content is often not quite right for us.
 
That we are pleased to report is not the case with New York based outfit Tempt. You may have seen them mentioned on various websites and in magazines over the last year - mainly praising a highly regarded self-financed EP and a smattering of live shows. The EP showcased a young, but thoroughly contemporary, band playing a style of music that evoked memories of the great melodic hard rock bands of the past. It was a heart-warming experience as the delivery, arrangements and attack suggested an allegiance to acts like Foofighters, Rival Sons and Alterbridge, yet the musicianship and spirit bring to mind classic Van Halen, Aerosmith and Def Leppard.
 
The band has crafted a truly spellbinding debut album; one that confronts the listener with a blast of the present but suggests a comforting whiff of the past. Crucially, all the elements are in place, from great vocals (courtesy of Zach Allen), incredible guitar playing (by Harrison Marcello ) and brilliantly crafted songs with enough twists and turns to not only satisfy the musically inclined but also to appeal to folk who just wanna rock.
