News: Bono Inspired by Temper Trap for New U2 Albums

11 Jan

Saw the below online and wanted to share as it’s not every day a rock legend like Bono gives praise to a band.  Icouldn’t be happier for the Temper Trap and looking forward to their next album!

From the Herald Sun:

BONO has cited Melbourne band the Temper Trap as an inspiration on the new U2 album.

Talking on the site to fans, Bono said the band was working on three albums with different musical directions.

“Something really exciting is that finally the rock band is melting into clubland and experimenting with sounds that are not normally deemed authentic for the rock band – synthesizers, experimental sounds – which you can hear in an album by the Temper Trap,” Bono said. “That’s exciting, a new hybrid.”

The Temper Trap, whose hit Sweet Disposition was compared with the sounds of U2, has been recording its second album, due for release mid-year, in LA and London.
