Tempt have released a new video for their cover of Queen’s icon rock anthem, “We Will Rock You”.

The video captures performances on their European tour at iconic festivals such as Hellfest, Download, Rock Im Park/Am Ring, Graspop and support dates for Iron Maiden, Shinedown, Tremonti and Theory. The band reworked the largely unknown “fast version” of the song as the encore for their set on the tour.

Check out the video here:

The video and single release were inspired by the incredible response the band received from European music fans.

Speaking about the song, Tempt’s lead singer, Zach Allen said:

“The entire tour, fans were just going all out and giving us so much support. At our first festival show at Rock Im Park the fans were going off and when we got to the chorus of We Will Rock You, we could hear them singing it back to us. At that point we decided we would end every show with it.”

The video captures not only the breakthrough performances of the band but also celebrates the festivals and most importantly the fans reaction to the band through the use of crew and fan filmed footage, photographs and social media posts.

The band will be launching a number of social media initiatives in support of the video and single including appearances by special guest guitarists and fan participation.

The single is one of many plans the band have for huge 2023 with multiple single releases to drop from their new record produced by Grammy Award winner, Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Paramore, My Chemical Romance, Muse) and a tour of the United States to come before the full album release.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
