By way of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas comes one raucous TEMPTRESS. A quartet of misfits thunderously tempting fate to boom their way across Big Texas and beyond at the speed of sound.
Kelsey Wilson (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Andi Cuba (Drums/Vocals), Erica Pipes (Rhythm Guitar/Vocals), and Christian Wright (Bass/Vocals) all decided to get together in mid-January 2019, for a simple afternoon of rocking out with the intent for nothing more than keeping their skills sharpened. They weren't planning to be a band. It just worked.
In five months, these four seasoned players went from jamming for fun in a practice space, to writing and recording some potent heavy metal songs and then began performing them live as TEMPTRESS, with the likes of Heavy Temple, Stonecutters, Backwoods Payback, and Royal Thunder.
In June, they presented their first three original songs in a debut EP release, 'Temptress', which was written, performed, and produced by the band. Recorded at Aqualab Sound Recordings in Dallas, Texas, by Josh White, with mastering by Frank Heath at Workshed Engineering in Birmingham, Alabama.
Today they share their next run of U.S. tour dates for 2019. These shows are Temptress' last of 2019. The band has completed the writing of all new songs and is scheduled to head into the studio to record their debut full-length album. The EP is available now via Bandcamp and most music outlets for digital download and streaming:
