Therapy? are bringing their 'Wood & Wire' acoustic
tour to Ireland in April 2017. Following on from extensive
periods of touring for their most recent album, Disquiet,
and for the anniversary of Infernal Love, the new dates
offer a rare chance to see the band in a different context.
The Wood & Wire tour has already taken in dates around
Europe, and a special gig at Union Chapel. A special limited
edition CD featuring 11 new acoustic recordings of tracks
spanning their career will be available on the tour.
Frontman Andy Cairns says:
"We in Therapy? are proud and excited to announce
that we'll be taking our music on the road in an acoustic
setting. This will be a challenge for us and hopefully
a chance for our fans to hear the melodies, guitars and
rhythms in unique settings. We'll be working on songs
from across all our albums and in intimate environments
we'll be able to give insights into the stories and influences
behind them. We'd love you to join us in helping make
this a celebratory experience"
Outsiders from day one, Therapy? have drawn upon the
attendant feelings of alienation, frustration and dislocation
for strength and inspiration across their remarkable
26 year career, crafting a dark, idiosyncratic worldview
which has garnered the group a reputation as one of
the most uncompromising, creative and individualistic
bands of their generation.
2015's Disquiet, produced by Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood
/ Band of Skulls / Turbowolf), extended this proud legacy,
and proved the trio of Cairns, bassist Michael McKeegan
and drummer Neil Cooper are in incendiary form. The
band's fourteenth studio album, but first recording
for new label Amazing Record Co., Disquiet, has been
widely hailed as a worthy sequel to their iconic album,
Troublegum, and featured on numerous Albums of the Year
lists, with Metalhammer proclaiming: "Therapy?
(have) released a batch of killer songs that sound like
an all-new Greatest Hits collection."
