[News] Dallas Heavy Doom trio Temptress announces Fall 2023 tour

Temptress is a crew thunderously tempting fate to boom their way beyond Big Texas at sonic speed. They got together in early 2019, released an EP five months later, and haven’t stalled their velocity for even a moment since.

In less than five years, Temptress has drawn a loyal fan base and press support for their music, as well as an outstanding list of live performances supporting both legendary acts and current rising stars of the Heavy music world (regardless of the recent chaotic fluctuations in the world of touring).

They continue to climb from underground with their first full-length album, “SEE,” released through Metal Assault Records on March 03, 2023. The trio is eager to resume their travels across the USA roadways and announces a new round of live shows to sustain the momentum for “SEE.”

Bassist/vocalist Christian Wright dispatches with tour particulars:

“We are excited to take our project through the upper midwest, west coast, and SW this Fall, in support of our latest effort ‘See‘,  which was released in March via Metal Assault. We can’t wait to catch up with friends, family, and peers both new and old along our journey. We have solid local support for the whole run and are thankful for those who helped in any way through the booking process. Community is key.

Our dear friends Dustlord (Tulsa, OK) will be joining us for the first six dates, and Grail (Phoenix, AZ) will be with us on the three Arizona dates. We extend a very special thanks to them. We are doing “An evening with” in Marfa, TX, which will likely include some heavy psych improv as well as new material. This will be a first for us and a glorious way to re-enter our home state of Texas. We look forward to seeing you out on the road.”

Three seasoned musicians from Texas with different backgrounds, influences, and a long history of touring came together to form TemptressKelsey Wilson (Guitar, Vocals), Andi Cuba (Drums, Vocals), and Christian Wright (Bass, Vocals) decided to get together in January 2019, for a simple afternoon of rocking out with the intent of nothing more than keeping their skills sharpened. They weren’t planning to be a band. It just worked.

In five months, these experienced players went from jamming for fun in a practice space to writing and recording some potent heavy songs. They immediately began performing them live as Temptress with the likes of Heavy Temple, Wo Fat, Ecstatic Vision, Black Tusk, and Royal Thunder. In early June 2019, they presented their first three original songs in a debut EP release, “Temptress.” 

Temptress finished writing their first full-length album in 2020 and then hit the studio of Crystal Clear Sound with Kent Stump (Wo Fat) to helm the recording, mix, and final mastering – completed in 2021.

The new record, entitled “SEE,” was released through Metal Assault Records on March 3, 2023, and features cover art from Caitlin Mattison. In addition to writing new music, Temptress is touring extensively throughout 2023 to support “SEE” and present the album to live audiences.
