Northern Irish band Therapy? blend the energy and catchy chorus of punk with the power of thrash metal to produce anthemic music beyond compare. The bandâ€™s line up now includes drummer Neil Cooper, singer Andy Cairns playing guitar and Michael McKeegan on bass.
The band formed in 1989 and began to record demos to back up their live performances and soon released the four track demo tape. The following year they produced 1000 copies of their single Meat Abstract which grabbed the attention of John Peel. As their name spread they began to gig more heavily, picking up support slots for such amazing bands as Tad, Fugazi, Teenage Fanclub and more.
They released their 1991 debut album Babyteeth and second record Pleasure Death through seminal indie label Wiiija Records. The two releases saw them grow in stature and they would sign to major A&M to bring out their breakthrough album Nurse. Taking a more industrial sound that their previous punk direction, the record chimed with audiences and hit #38 in the UK Album Charts. Their success continued with following albums Troublegum hitting #5 and Infernal Love charting at #9 with the decade being dominated with their albums.
Their progress continued straight passed the millennium as they released further records including the hit album Shameless which hi #9 in the States upon the 2001 release. Their latest record was entitled Disquiet and came out in 2015.
