After more than two decades and 13 studio albums later, Therapy? continue their assault on the senses by embarking a 12 date UK tour this winter.
Kicking off in Birmingham on Friday 23rd November, the influential Northern Irish trio will play an enthralling set of old favourites and brand new material from their most recent album, 'A Brief Crack Of Light', released in February earlier this year.
Co-produced by the band and Adam Sinclair (New York Dolls, The Unthanks) in Blast Studios in Newcastle, 'A Brief Crack Of Light' is the follow-up to 2009's acclaimed 'Crooked Timber'.
Written, says frontman Andy Cairns, about the absurdity of human life, 'A Brief Crack Of Light' draws upon myriad disparate influences - Black Flag's primal clenched fist aggression, the skewed genius of Stewart Lee's coruscating comic monologues, the writings of Samuel Beckett, the irresistible swing and swagger of Charlie Mingus among them - to deliver a dark, unsettling compendium of 21st century schizoid noise.
