Inner Temple is a band based in northeastern Pennsylvania that is brand new to The Key’s radar. Aside from the fact that it was released in 2016, the group’s most LP Captivity is a quintessential late ’90s / early 00s alt-rock record: heavily distorted guitars, driving percussion and coarse vocals that were popularized by powerhouses like System of a Down and Bayside. The record, which was worked on with Citizen’s Matt Kerekes, came out in October and you can listen to them below.

If you’re up for a drive, you can catch the band at Pottsville on December 17th or in Bloomsburg on the 31st. Keep an eye on the group’s Facebook for new releases and/or any upcoming shows scheduled in your area.
