Temet Nosce is a norwegian rock band from Karmøy, Norway’s west coast.
The band started in October 2009 by Roy Kling, song writer and guitarist of the band. Together with lead singer Vidar Stueland and drummer Leif Helge Olsen, they went into the studio to record their debut album "Know Thyself".
Shortly after the band was joined by Christian Welde (keyboard) and Terje Fjell (bass). The band was now complete and "Know Thyself" was released in August 2010.
As a result of the great response from the audience, Temet Nosce was asked to perform at Oktober Rock Festival in 2010, together with artists Beth Hart and Slade. By this time one of the songs of their debut album, "Another World" had reached the top 40 radio charts.
Temet Nosce held several concerts locally, and as the good response continued, the band was chosen as the support band for Lissie, in June 2011.
At the same time, the band's new song "We are all one" had radio release and quickly hit the top 40 charts. By then Temet Nosce had decided to make their first music video based on their latest song "We are all one". The video shoot took place just a few months later at the historical building “Søderberg”, Hydro, a former aluminium production plant that was being demolished after 40 years of operations.
The music video was ready to be introduced the same date as the band's new EP "Love" (October 2011) which featured 3 songs, including a new version of their song "Change can only begin with yourself", which once again hit the top 40 charts at the end of 2011 climbing to nr. 1 on the list early in 2012. (The song remained on the carts for 23 weeks).
In February 2012 Temet Nosce had a new single ready "Create your own life". The band's new music video based on this song was filmed in London, England and the release date for both the single and the video was March , 2012.
In June 2012 Temet Nosce was invited to play their first international gig at Stony Stratford Festival in England. Playing at Stony was a great step for the band. The band manager, Roy Kling explained the importance of playing abroad: "Such gigs let us play our music in a new scene in front of new crowd who might not have heard us before" The band, who received a huge response during and after the show, will continue working towards international gigs.
