Templar (1998-2001): a Rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.


anadian alternative rock band Templar formed in 1998 by vocalist Murray Yates and guitarist Will C., and fused hard rock and electronica influences. The band took its name from Simon Templar, the lead character in the crime novel and film series The Saint. Their debut album, Under the Sun arrived in 2000 on 'EMI Records' featuring the singles The Need and Here We Go, the latter of which was featured on the NHL 2001 game.

Due to creative tensions, the band broke up in late 2001 while working on their second album. Yates went on to form Forty Foot Echo.

Footnote: Not to be confused with the American band of the same name that would be the fore-runner of Order of Nine.
