THERAPY? announce even more UK and European dates for October 2020

To coincide with the bands ‘So Much for the 30 Year Plan Tour’ Therapy? re-recorded 12 of their UK Top 40 hits, many of which have become standout anthems, in Abbey Road to bring the tracks into the present. The band worked with producer Chris Sheldon, who produced the original Troublegum album as well as working on Semi-Detached, High Anxiety and the band’s latest record Cleave, to record the 12-track album that includes all their UK hits including Screamager and a reworking of Diane; Featuring James Dean Bradfield of Manic Street Preachers on one track, the band reflect on their great time touring and growing as a band over the past thirty years.

Vocalist Andy Cairns comments on the release: “Distilling the essence of what makes Therapy? what we are isn’t easy. Anyone familiar with the 30 years of the band’s history and numerous releases will be aware we have a broad range of musical taste and we’ve never been a band easily pigeon-holed. Putting together a representative package would be a nightmare and would likely involve a box set. In the end we decided to go for a take on the Greatest Hits format only and instead of compiling the tracks from previous releases we thought it would make things more current if we went into the famous Abbey Road studios and worked with the legendary producer, Chris Sheldon, a friend who has collaborated with us successfully over the decades. The Greatest Hits are just that. Our twelve most successful top 40 UK singles.”

“We’re proud of these songs and are excited by how fresh they still sound today. We hope these tracks will comfort those already familiar with them, remind estranged friends that it’s time they got back in touch and show younger listeners how a bunch of misfits use chaos and melody to get through life and its toughest challenges. Timeless rock songs recorded in a magical studio by an icon of music production. What more do you want?”
