(AUS) Frontier Touring are excited to announce the long awaited return of The Temper Trap to Australian stages, with confirmation that the band are heading home this May for special intimate concerts in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Rumour has it the shows will give Aussie audiences their first taste of the ARIA Award winning band’s highly anticipated third album, expected to drop in the not too distant future.

It’s been three long years since The Temper Trap last undertook a headline tour of Australia and four years since the release of their ARIA #1 self-titled Platinum sophomore album. That album spawned Platinum single ‘Trembling Hands’ and Gold single ‘Need Your Love’, while their 2009 debut album Conditions secured double Platinum sales in Australia and produced the three times Platinum anthem ‘Sweet Disposition’, in addition to Platinum singles ‘Love Lost’ and ‘Fader’.

The Temper Trap recently teased Australian audiences with the release of single ‘Thick As Thieves’ from their forthcoming album. The track has already proven to be a favourite at radio with it jumping to high rotation on numerous playlists. Sure to be a live crowd anthem, ‘Thick As Thieves’ is a tantalising glimpse of exciting things to come.

With over one million albums sold worldwide to date and main stage slots on some of the world’s biggest music festivals, these May Australian dates are a rare opportunity for fans to catch one of Australia’s most acclaimed bands in an intimate setting.

Wednesday 4 May – Metro Theatre, Sydney, NSW
Thursday 5 May – Forum Theatre, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 7 May – The Triffid, Brisbane, QLD
