Finnish hard rockers sign to Frontiers new album out early 2021
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Finnish hard rockers Temple Balls to a multi album deal!
A hard working melodic hard rock act from Oulu, Finland, Temple Balls released their debut single, ’Hell And Feelin’ Fine’, in September 2016. The infectious song got plenty of spins on Finland’s Radio Rock and helped to establish the newcomers on the scene. The band went on to record their debut album, ‘Traded Dreams’, with producer Tobias Lindell (Europe, Mustasch, H.E.A.T.) and promoted it with a sold-out tour across their home territory with Battle Beast. They also played in Japan for the first time, following which the readers of BURRN! magazine voted them ‘2nd Brightest Hope’, while a subsequent tour of the Baltics and Eastern Europe in late 2017 and early 2018 further helped to spread the word about them.
The band then took a break to record their second album, ‘Untamed,’ which dropped in March 2019. Greeted with fantastic reviews, they then appeared as one of the support acts of Sonata Arctica on their recent European tour alongside now labelmates Edge Of Paradise.

Memorable refrains, melodic hooks, heartfelt lyrics and vocalist Arde Teronen’s classic singing style all add up to a delightful delivery from these youngsters. This is what caught the attention of Frontiers, who are now looking forward to releasing the next album by the band, which will be produced by Jona Tee (H.E.A.T) and is tentatively planned for release in the first quarter of 2021.
