2014 Round-Up/Bring on 2015

THERAPY?-DEC 2014

THERAPY?-DEC 2014

Hello all,
Just a short post to give you a brief heads up on what we’ve been up to in 2014 and what to expect in 2015. It was sort’ve meant to be a ‘quiet’ year with the priority being recording a new album and sorting out a new record deal for its release. There were also quite a few other cool things which fell into place as well and it actually ended up being one of the busiest and most creative years in recent history. You might not have seen much extensive touring from us but there was a lot of writing and recording on the go ‘behind the scenes’ which means we have a nice chunk of killer new material to release next year.

Anyway, let’s have a look at it as it happened…first up the “Troublegum” & “Infernal Love” deluxe editions were released along with 15 track ‘entry level’ best of “Stories”. Then we headed out on a celebratory “TG20” UK tour which was absolutely killer and every night was an absolute joy to rock out with all our good friends. Straight off the back of that (and taking considerable energy from those live shows) we hit the studio and tracked the new album with our good friend and uber-producer Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Killing Joke, Turbowolf, Opeth etc). The song writing had started end of 2013 (some of you might remember us playing a proto-version of “Still Hurts” in Castlebar, Nov 2013 or “Insecurity” at Coastrock?) for that so we had a large pool of kick ass songs to choose from which we refined in a pre-album demo session which meant the album session went great.

After recording we started a run of festivals and again, they were all ace and we even made our debut trip out to Guernsey which was a real event for us. Hellfest in France was an awesome show, the gig went great and it was nice to catch up with lots of old friends and make a few new ones. The Sonisphere “Infernal Love” show was brilliant as well, we’d never played the full album before so we were a bit nervous as to how it would go down but, again, the crowd seemed well up for it and it was one of the best shows we’ve done in years. And let’s not forget the epic 14 cello version of “Diane” performed at Breda Barst, that was a big treat for us.

We’ve been busy since the end of the summer as well, we signed a new record deal with a brand new label for the release of the new album and, albeit a new label, the individuals involved have many years of experience in the business and have some great ideas about what needs to be done with the new record. Also from a purely selfish point of few, working with enthusiastic and knowledgable people is always a boost for us and makes a big difference when working on a project.

Andy also recorded his 2nd solo acoustic cd and did a 2nd solo acoustic tour round the UK which was brilliantly received and showcased a different side to the Therapy? catalogue. It was also a good way to road-test more of the new songs and there were a few special guests along the way.

One of the highlights of the year (and probably one of the highlights of the bands career!) occurred when we got awarded the “Oh Yeah Legends” award in Belfast at the Northern Irish Music Prize ceremony. Apart from being extremely honoured (previous recipients are SLF, Undertones, Gary Moore) , we had a class show and it was great to have our friends Nathan Connolly (Snow Patrol) and Tony Wright (VerseChorusVerse) come up and jam on “Die Laughing” and “Lunacy Booth” respectively. A perfect, brilliant night!

While we were in NI Andy and I recorded a one-off project we’ve been working on for a while and, though very different from the T? sound, it’s still a dark, intense and unsettling listen. In total we recorded 17 tracks and a few of them feature friends from the NI music scene like Robyn G Shiels, Roisin Stewart (Desert Hearts/Le Carousel), Herb Magee (La Faro/GOONS), Ben McCauley and Brian Coney. There’s no release date planned for that yet but rest assured it will surface sometime in 2015.

We finished the year by heading back to Blast Studios and recording the rest of the songs we’d demoed earlier in the year (we also snuck in a new album/promo photo-shoot while we were there!). It was brilliant to get ALL the tunes recorded so we now have a ‘pool’ of songs for use as ‘bonus tracks’, either as B-sides/ep tracks or one offs. To be honest we haven’t been this prepared in years, saves any last minute scrabbling to get B-sides together.

Not bad going for a ‘quiet’ year. So if next year is half as busy it’ll be a good one! At the minute we are finalising release dates, formats and sorting singles/videos for the new album as well as booking live shows and festivals for 2015. BUT we do have a track listing, artwork and a title which should all be announced early next year once the new album release date is locked in.If we’ve been a bit cagey about details it’s just that we want to have everything in place before we start making announcements, rest assured there will be a lot of exciting things forthcoming. Anyways, enough of my yakkin’, this post has ended up a lot longer than initially intended! From myself, Andy and Neil, as always we thank you for your continued support and looking forward to catching up with you all in 2015. Have a fun and safe festive period and from the three of us, we wish you all the best for the New Year. See you down the front!
