Kettering four-piece Temples performed for millions of US television viewers during an appearance on the daytime talk show Ellen yesterday (Monday, September 29).

The band, which features James Bagshaw, Thomas Walmsley, Samuel Toms and Adam Smith, played their single Shelter Song, taken from their debut album Sun Structures - which was released in February this year.

Introducing the band, host Ellen DeGeneres said: “The minute I heard their music I had to have them on the show.”

A video of the performance can be found here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvixgoMGm2A.

In July Temples also appeared on another popular US talk show – The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

The band are set to embark on a US tour in the next few days and return to the UK in late November for a ten-date tour.
