Following on from the announcement that the Northern Irish alternative rock trio have signed with label Marshall Records, THERAPY? have just launched the inaugural single ‘Callow’ taken from their 15th opus, which will be released in the autumn. Melody, riffs, rhythm and intensity, the new works, inspired by what the band call a ‘new age of anxiety’, are guaranteed to propel the hard working trio back to the forefront of heavy music with the support of their new team.
Andy Cairns (frontman/guitarist) says this about the inaugural track ‘Callow’ that is now available on iTunes and Spotify:
“After the death of Lil Peep and the media spotlight on Xanax addiction the band thought back to an old Stephen Fry quote relating to his demon-battling days of manic depression and his dislike of anti depressants and their numbing effect. ” if you take away my demons, you’ll take my angels too”. Does this anxious new age require self administered oblivion? Have we reached a point where we need to zone out from the constant, warring and divisive noise around us? The sweetest of melodies over a panic stricken tempo and a refusal to kowtow.
This is Therapy? in 2018″
