EARLY 2021 SHOWS RESCHEDULED!

Folks, there’s no nice way to say this but once again due to the Covid 19 situation we are forced to postpone our touring for the early part of 2021.

The UK gigs will now be in Oct/Nov 2021 whilst the Dutch shows are in Jan 2022. We have had to change the German dates to December 2021 and we will be adding a show in Stuttgart soon too, just waiting on confirmation of the date. The Brussels AB show will now be on December 8th, Luxembourg will be October 13th, the Vienna WUK show is on the 21st November and the Budapest A38 gig is the following day, 22nd November 2021. All the updated info is on our official tour page and on the attached posters/images below. New dates for other places will follow so please be patient.

All current tickets remain valid. You are advised to retain any tickets and ticket confirmations at this time.

Naturally we send our sincerest apologies for all this but it is, as we are sure that you will understand, totally beyond our control. We are anxious to get out and play and meet you all again but only when it is safe and sensible to do so. Thanks again for you patience & support!

SIGNED BIOGRAPHY RE-PRINT SOLD OUT & DELAYED

The reaction to the signed/autographed ‘So Much For The 30 Year Plan’ official biography has been so fantastic that BOTH the first run AND the re-print has already sold out. However anyone who is waiting on delivery of the re-print please note due to the continuing resurgence of Covid-19 on the continent the delivery of the new print run of the book has been delayed to the UK distributor and hence to us too.

We would hope now to be in a position to ship our books around November 6th all being well. We sincerely apologise for this delay and hopefully this hasn’t inconvenienced anyone too much. Andy, Michael, Neil.

Please note this delay applies only to the exclusive signed copies from our sit, the ‘regular’ versions are still available from usual outlets & online! http://jawbonepress.com/therapy/

“Before we recorded Infernal Love, I didn’t know if I was coming or going. I developed quite a healthy drug habit and was drinking a bottle of Absolut vodka every day. I thought that if I gave up drinking, I’d spend the next two weeks lying in bed and feeling sick. I decided to keep going and see if inspiration would hit …”
—ANDY CAIRNS, THERAPY?


So Much For The 30 Year Plan is the first ever book to detail the life of Therapy?, one of rock’s boldest and most idiosyncratic acts. Written with the full co-operation of the band’s current members—frontman Andy Cairns, bassist Michael McKeegan, and drummer Neil Cooper—this official biography explores the dizzying highs and crushing lows they have experienced while navigating a three-decade-long career.
Featuring extensive interviews with the band and key figures from throughout their history, So Much For The 30 Year Plan offers insights into the band’s origins in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, the backlash they received from the underground scene after signing to a major label, the birth of their million-selling 1994 album Troublegum, the full story behind their split with original drummer Fyfe Ewing, and much more.
Published to coincide with the band’s 30th anniversary, this is essential reading for all Therapy? fans—and for anyone with an interest in the alternative music of the era.
