Guitars? Yes guitars. Blazing guitars, ripping guitars and guitar solos! Tempt are not DJ’s, shoe gazers, hipsters, rappers, “producers” or lovers of EDM and nobody told them that you couldn’t have a smash hit on radio that’s guitar driven and that rocked. Tempt are rockers; in fact, they’re the return of the rock star AND the guitar hero and they write hits.

Yes they believe in and celebrate great musicianship in the tradition of their heroes Malmsteen, Lynch, Sykes, Plant, Tyler, Bonham and Peart but they do it with an upbeat and infectious pop sensibility. This isn’t dark metal for depressed anti-deluvians, it’s music that people roll down the windows of their cars on a summer day and sing to! This is a band that girls want to f**k and guys want to be in! It’s the US band that can bring ROCK back.

And on May 25th, rock fans will be able to see what all the buzz is about, when the NYC-based Tempt - which is comprised of Zach Allen (vocals), Harrison Marcello (guitars, keyboards, vocals), Zak Gross (bass, vocals), and Jimmi Kane (drums) - will take a road trip to Pryor, OK, to rock Rocklahoma. And available at the show will be a four-song Rocklahoma collector’s EP sampler featuring the first single “Under My Skin” which has just been released on:

Available on itunes
Available on Amazon

“We’re so thrilled that our record is finally mixed and mastered and we wanted to get one of the tracks out there for our fans. ‘Under My Skin’ represents our sound and we’re ready to hear our fans sing it at Rocklahoma”

In addition to the title track, the EP features “Use It Or Lose It” an up-tempo rocker, “The Fight” a powerful fist pumping anthem and “Time Won’t Heal” a smash power ballad. As legend Michael Wagener said “When I was mixing their album, I couldn't make up my mind which song would be the single, because they all are very well written and performed. Great band, great songs, great performances."

Along the way to Rocklahoma, Tempt will be bringing their high-energy live show rocking and rolling to Pittsburgh, Columbus, Louisville, Nashville, Raleigh, Washington DC, and Philadelphia.

"We are ready to take Rocklahoma by storm and feed off the energy of some great rock fans," says Tempt. "This is a great opportunity for us and we're thankful to everyone at Rocklahoma for including us. It will be our one year anniversary of our first show when we hit Rocklahoma and it's a great place to celebrate."

Tempt's upcoming Rocklahoma performance is:
