MTV announced not too long ago that the legendary band, The Temper Trap, would be playing an exclusive gig for the sixth installment of MTV Sessions taking place at Resorts World Sentosa’s Waterfront Studio on 16 May. The five men band will rock the stage with songs from their latest self-titled album which debuted #1 on the ARIA Album Charts in May last year and contained mind blowing tracks such as “Need Your Love” and “Trembling Hands”.If you’ve heard the song “Sweet Disposition” from the cult favorite movie 500 Days of Summer, then you would probably already know about The Temper Trap. But if you don’t and you have a sweet spot for pop/rock music, then we promise you that you’ll love this band!
The Temper Trap, consisting of frontman Dougy Mandagi on vocals and guitar, Lorenzo Silltto on guitar, Jonny Aherne on bass, Toby Dundas on drums found success with their 2009 debut album Conditions. The album sold like hotcakes and even led to a BRIT Award nomination for International Breakthrough Artist and two sold-out tours in the U.K. Their self-titled album that we will have the wonderful chance to listen live was produced after they expanded to a five-piece outfit with the addition of keyboardist and guitarist Joseph Greer. I have personally had the album on repeat these past few weeks, and I would definitely compare it to a ‘chill pill’, the ones that you take when you’re feeling 500% done with everything.Do expect a very intimate session with the five-piece outfit, since MTV Sessions only permits a crowd of no more than 200 fans.From now till 7 May, The Temper Trap enthusiasts who wish to catch them live can take part in an online contest on our Facebook page to win tickets to the music showcase on 16 May! We only have a pair of tickets to give away, so get crackin’ guys!
