Twin Temple at The Loving Touch, Ferndale, MI – November 23, 2019 (Review/Gallery)

From the moment this devilish duo entered my musical radar, I knew Twin Temple would have the potential, just from their ascetic alone, to become one of those acts that could organically grow a passionate fandom. Drawing from the energies of Satan, Twin Temple doesn’t feel like novelty act at all. Their songs are really good songs, period. Once I learned I could eventually see them live on the opening slot of the Amigo The Devil/King Dude tour, it was one of my most anticipated shows of the year.
