For Northern Ireland-originating rockers Therapy? resilience and survival have become watchwords.
Enduring over three decades as the musical, cultural and social landscapes have shifted around them, the trio have forged and retained a powerful and lasting connection with a dedicated fan base around the world, doing so by putting their emphasis on the music, solidifying a hard-won reputation as forward-thinking writers and a fierce live proposition in the process.
Never ones to rest on their laurels Therapy? are set to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their Platinum awarded album TROUBLEGUM with a series of concerts in Australia, Ireland, UK and Mainland Europe later this year. As Andy Cairns of the band said recently:
"To celebrate the 30th anniversary of our album Troublegum we’ll be heading out on tour this year to celebrate with a set (not just a perfunctory play through), based on Therapy? in 1994 and featuring songs from that era alongside the TG tunes.
When we started out in County Antrim in 1989 we could never have foreseen this beast of punk metal noise being such a landmark record.
Come along and celebrate with us as we play banger after banger!"
As Therapy?’s fourth decade finally gets underway in earnest, sixteenth album "Hard Cold Fire", written and pre-produced during an unprecedented time for music, is hefty, compact, and accessible, a distillation of everything that has made them what they are - hewn from County Antrim basalt, still possessed of their stoicism, but casting a renewed focus on catharsis and healing.
Coming together in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland in 1989, rock three-piece Therapy? have, over the course of three decades and sixteen studio albums, resolutely carved their own path, from the 'thrown' noise-rock clang of their early mini-albums "Babyteeth" and "Pleasure Death"; to genre-defying mainstream success in the 1990s with Gold-certified albums "Troublegum" and "Infernal Love"; to enduring, cult-hero status in the post-millennial climate.
