Soundbox Bangkok recruits The Temper Trap for first 2017 concert

For years Aussie indie darlings The Temper Trap have been circling Bangkok, playing shows and festivals across the region, but never made it to the Thai capital.

Now thanks to Live Nation BEC-Tero, fans don’t have to wait for another 500 days of summer to see the award-winning band behind “Sweet Disposition”, “Lost Love” and “Trembling Hands” live.

The Temper Trap will be headlining the first 2017 edition of Bangkok’s Soundbox concert on March 8, 2017 at Muang Thai GMM Live House, Central World. Joining them are local acts Scrubb and Electric Neon Lamp.

Soundbox is an annual concept concert series created by Live Nation in 2015. It has seen pop and alternative favourites like Charlie Puth, Pentatonix, Broods, twenty one pilots, and Miyavi performing in previous editions.

Soundbox Bangkok is The Temper Trap’s fifth show announcement in Asia, following Manila’s Wanderland Music and Arts Festival (Mar 4), Soundbox Shanghai (Mar 6) and two headlining shows in Singapore (Mar 10) and Taipei (Mar 12).

The Melbourne-based band first rose to international acclaim with debut album Conditions, propelled by the hit anthem “Sweet Disposition”.

The band became a four-piece with the departure of guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto in 2013. But Dougy Mandagi, Toby Dundas, Jonathon Aherne and Joseph Greer forged ahead with their new record. “It pushed us towards certain place that we may have not gone had we still been five,” said Mandagi.

Their latest album Thick As Thieves, first without Sillitto, was released in May 2016. It’s powered by the sound of a band who’ve taken risks but have also reconnected with why they fell in love with music in the first place. Here’s their latest single, “Lost”.
