The Temper Trap Unveiled as Final 2009 ARIA Awards Performer 29.10.09

ARIA is thrilled to announce the final Australian performer at the 23rd annual ARIA Awards, with the inclusion of The Temper Trap into the lineup of live music performances. This finalises what is set to be an extraordinary night of entertainment when the Australian music industry's favourite event rolls around on Thursday 26 November at Acer Arena.

In a massive coup for organisers, The Temper Trap, who relocated to the UK in April this year, have confirmed that they’ll take a break from their UK and European tour to return home for their first performance on Australian soil since the release of their debut album Conditions. The Melbourne indie four-piece have taken the world by storm since the release of Conditions with the album to date reaching #9 in Australia and #26 in the UK. Their single Sweet Disposition has had a massive impact in the UK, shooting up the Radio 1 playlist to become their #2 most played song, ensuring Sweet Disposition a #6 spot on the singles chart and sales in excess of 160,000 units.

The Temper Trap step up to the plate at their first ARIA Awards with an impressive four nominations in the categories of BEST ROCK ALBUM, BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST – ALBUM, SINGLE OF THE YEAR (Sweet Disposition) and the coveted ALBUM OF THE YEAR.

The Temper Trap will share the stage with a stellar lineup of homegrown artists including Keith Urban, Jessica Mauboy, Hilltop Hoods, Empire Of The Sun, Sarah Blasko, Lisa Mitchell, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ladyhawke and international pop icon Robbie Williams, who will perform his new single Bodies.

SARAH BLASKO, LISA MITCHELL & KATE MILLER-HEIDKE:
In a massive coup, three of Australia's leading female artists will grace the stage in succession to give us a one off performance. Receiving three ARIA Awards nominations apiece, these charming singer/songwriters are sure to put on a show of vocal talent that is not to be missed.

SARAH BLASKO is no stranger to the ARIA Awards, having received eight nominations and one win for her first two albums. She returns this year with nominations for BEST FEMALE ARTIST, ALBUM OF THE YEAR and BEST POP RELEASE, which she took home back in 2007 for her second album What The Sea Wants, The Sea Will Have. Her captivating third album As Day Follows Night sees her pushing boundaries, highlighting her diversity as an artist. It's an awakening of sorts that has not only impressed the ARIA Academy but has also scored her a J Award nomination for Australian Album of the Year.

KATE MILLER-HEIDKE caps off a huge year with nods for BEST FEMALE ARTIST, BEST POP RELEASE and SINGLE OF THE YEAR for her hauntingly beautiful track The Last Day On Earth, from her platinum selling top 3 album Curiouser. She took out the esteemed International Songwriting Competition for her tune Caught In The Crowd in May, while her song Can't Shake It was nominated for an APRA song of the year award.

LISA MITCHELL scores her first ever ARIA Award nominations for her debut album, in three categories including BEST FEMALE ARTIST, BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST – SINGLE (Coin Laundry) and BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST – ALBUM, for her glorious debut album Wonder. It has received accolades from critics Australia-wide and cements this young talent as a star on the rise and one to watch in the coming years.

LADYHAWKE:
Nominated for a huge five ARIA Awards for her self-titled album, Ladyhawke will show us why she's been named one of the most exciting artists this year when she brings her danceable grooves to the Awards arena. Her nominations include BEST FEMALE ARTIST, BEST POP RELEASE, BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST – ALBUM, BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST – SINGLE (My Delirium) and SINGLE OF THE YEAR.
