The Skinny: The UK punk rock trio from Birmingham, Templeton Pek, has recently finished recording their forthcoming album Signs in the States with producer Shep Goodman. Neal Mitchell (vocals, bass) comments: “It’s important to note that even though the majority of the new record was made in New York City, two key tracks were made in the UK at Modern World studios with Producer Greg Haver. These tracks were really integral to our sound development and the catalyst for the rest of the album.”

Furthermore, Templeton Pek has premiered their first song “Alive (Promise Is Safety)” from their upcoming studio album, Signs. The band comments about the release of Alive: “We much prefer to let the music do the talking than talk about it ourselves. We’ve been itching to release new music for a long time now, ever since we started writing the first chords of this new album, and we are equally excited to unleash and introduce ‘Alive (Promise is Safety)’ to the world. Enjoy & share.”
