By popular demand we’ve brought back a couple of the ‘classic’ shirts from the 90’s and they are now available to order at the shop.
First up is the 1992 “Teethgrinder” shirt which features a version of the single art. Avails HERE
The other design is the infamous 1993 “Die Laughing” ‘clown’ shirt, guaranteed to give you nightmares and much better than an Xmas jumper for the office party. This one has a back print and comes on two different shirt colours, ash grey & natural and you can get one HERE
Folks, Xmas is just round the corner and if you are planning on ordering any band merch from us and you’d like them for the holidays here are the ‘last dates’ to order by…cheers.

Delighted to share with you all the new lyric video for the latest track from “CLEAVE”….”Success? Success Is Survival”. Read where the inspiration for the track came from and watch below!
(Not afraid to speak about injustices, vocalist Andy Cairns explores some of the nature in the lyrics commenting: “The song is about the growing divide between the haves and have-nots.” And the societal views in the track “Vladimir Lenin said, ‘Capitalist society, is and has always been horror without end’. The opening line of the track is “the cream of this country, rich and thick” and is paraphrased from Samuel Beckett to describe his patrons at Portora School for Boys in Enniskillen (i.e. rich, entitled). This then leads into the pre-chorus “that’s the order that’s been set, we’re expected to accept” this looks at how a ‘caste’ system is increasing. The second verse contrasts this with imagery of desperate immigrants who regularly risk their own and their children’s lives to cross perilous water. The title and chorus of the song comes from Leonard Cohen. Asked in an interview in the early 70’s what his definition of success was he replied “Success? Success is survival”.)
Pleased to finally confirm we will be back in Leeds Brudenell on 23rd September for TWO shows and another visit to The Cluny in Newcastle the following day (24th). Leeds will have a FREE matinee show for everyone who missed the full set at our Nov 2018 gig (see full press release and info below, please read carefully!) and a ticketed full headline show later that night.

“Therapy? have announced a brand new show at Leeds Brudenell Social Club on Monday 23rd September.
