The Temper Trap release Conditions (tour dates / MP3)

The Temper Trap’s debut release, Conditions, comes out today, October 13th. If the Melbourne band sounds familiar, it may be due to their contribution on the 500 Days Of Summer soundtrack with their single, “Sweet Disposition”. In addition to the release of their first album today, you can also spot the band tonight on Jimmy Kimmel. They are starting a U.S. tour this week, singing their new ten track album along the way. Here's a single off the new album, "Down River".
