The Stranglers tour is over and what a blast it was!

The dust has settled after the recent The Stranglers tour and have to say in our 28 years of being a band, it has got to rank as one of the very best touring experiences we’ve ever had.

It was a real honour to be welcomed into The Stranglers family and to get to hang out and play with our heroes for 4 weeks. A brilliant band, on top of their game with a killer road crew and a very receptive audience, we were spoilt from start to finish. Big love & thanks to JJ, Baz, Dave, Jim, Gary, Louie, James, Luke, Andi, Pat, Andy, Ian, Merv, Kev, Rikki,Pete, Raphael, Damon, David, Richard, Bev and Anthony!

And of course to our own ‘dream team’ for making our shows effortless…Rich, Steve, Mark & Herb!

We thoroughly enjoyed playing the new song (“Callow”) at the shows and hope you’s all enjoyed us busting out “Innocent X” and “Lonely Cryin’ Only”. Looking forward to the festivals now and see you all soon with some more new album details 😉

2018 Update/News!

It’s been a busy and exciting start to 2018 for us so far. At the minute we are in the studio about halfway through recording album number fifteen (!!!) and things are sounding excellent. For this album we have reunited with Chris Sheldon as producer and we’ve been enjoying the creative and productive working atmosphere. Its likely you know Chris’s name from his sterling work on Troublegum/Semi-Detached/High Anxiety as well as albums by Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro etc. Once we are done recording mid-February, Chris will mix the tracks with a plan to getting some new music out later in the year.

We’ll not be slacking as we already have a host of shows booked starting with a lengthy run around Eire/N. Ireland/Scotland/England/Wales with The Stranglers right through March. We don’t need to tell you that we are huge fans of the band and we’re really excited to be part of this great package. All the dates are listed HERE.

The Stranglers/Therapy? tour March 2018!

There are a couple of festivals in place already (more pending!), Bearded Theory in the UK plus the Rockavaria Festival in Munich and Street Mode Festival in Greece. Also note we have a short run of German club shows in the days prior to Rockaveria if you cant make the festivals.

German Shows 2018!

Anyway, once the album release date is confirmed we will be going out to do extensive headline touring of our own to promote the record and hopefully be swinging by somewhere near to you. As ever, keeping checking here for updates and of course we’re on the usual social media for more day to day updates and studio/tour bits and bobs…

Tribute gig to Eric Cook confirmed…Newcastle 11th September!

 

Therapy? present a Gig For Eric, celebrating the life of North East music industry legend, Eric Cook.

 

11th September 2017 – The Cluny, Newcastle

 

To describe the late Eric Cook as a ‘music industry veteran’ would be akin to describing Gazza or Alan Shearer as ‘good footballers’. Eric was more than someone who just worked in the music industry, managed bands, ran a studio or ran record companies. He lived and breathed his passion for music. He helped so many and so often that his passing has left a huge void in the industry and especially in the North East. As Andy Cairns, Therapy? frontman, said on hearing of his death “the North East will be a lonelier and quieter place now that Eric has gone”.

Eric Cook

 

Therapy? were one of Eric’s last signings to his own labels Blast and Demolition Records and he took them with him to Amazing Record Co. too. There was a huge amount of mutual respect between Eric and the band, and it was Andy’s suggestion that we show Eric the respect that he deserved in the best and most suitable manner possible… a bloody loud rock gig in a venue that Eric knew very well. Gathering together two other bands Eric worked with – Avalanche Party and Tysondog – Therapy? plan to put on a fantastic show to celebrate Eric’s life as a rocker… for at heart that was what he truly was, a rocker and an inspiration to many.

 

Gig For Eric’ at Newcastle’s Cluny will be headlined by Therapy?, who Eric worked with from 2008 through to their most recent album, Disquiet. Support comes from two bands Eric championed at opposite ends of his career – Tysondog a Newcastle heavy metal band formed in 1982, and Avalanche Party, an up and coming North East garage rock band, in whose storming live shows Eric saw huge potential.

 

The show on 11th September falls on the 5 month anniversary of Eric’s passing, following a battle with cancer.

 

Eric began his career managing black metal band, Venom, from the young age of 19, and went on to manage artists as diverse as Andy Taylor (Duran Duran), classical musician Tolga Kashif and children’s TV star Richard Wisker. Along with his brother, Ged, he founded Demolition Records, home to David Lee Roth, Twisted Sister, The Quireboys, Quiet Riot, and W.A.S.P. and later Blast Records, to which he signed Therapy?

 

Therapy? say:

 

Eric’s support and positivity was infectious on everyone around him. No idea seemed too big, no job too hard. Under his watch we released three studio albums, recorded in Blast studios which he restored and owned, and a live album. His bright eyed and energetic presence will be missed by all of us in the Therapy? Family.”
