Northern Irish rockers Therapy? have announced a new album and tour to celebrate their 30-year anniversary.

“Greatest Hits (2020 Versions)” is due for release on March 13th, 2020. The band worked with producer Chris Sheldon, who produced the original “Troublegum” album, as well as working on “Semi-Detached”, “High Anxiety”, and the band’s latest record “Cleave”. James Dean Bradfield of Manic Street Preachers features on one of the tracks, “Die Laughing”.

Vocalist Andy Cairns comments on the release:

“Distilling the essence of what makes Therapy? what we are isn’t easy. Anyone familiar with the 30 years of the band’s history and numerous releases will be aware we have a broad range of musical taste and we’ve never been a band easily pigeon-holed. Putting together a representative package would be a nightmare and would likely involve a box set. In the end we decided to go for a take on the Greatest Hits format only and instead of compiling the tracks from previous releases we thought it would make things more current if we went into the famous Abbey Road studios and worked with the legendary producer, Chris Sheldon, a friend who has collaborated with us successfully over the decades. The Greatest Hits are just that. Our twelve most successful top 40 UK singles.

We’re proud of these songs and are excited by how fresh they still sound today.
We hope these tracks will comfort those already familiar with them, remind estranged friends that it’s time they got back in touch and show younger listeners how a bunch of misfits use chaos and melody to get through life and its toughest challenges. Timeless rock songs recorded in a magical studio by an icon of music production. What more do you want?

Therapy? has never stopped moving in our 30 years and are always writing and ready for the next phase but in 2020 we’d love everyone to join in our celebrations of three decades of noise and adversity. This album is your invitation. Love, Therapy?” –  January 2020.

Alongside the 12 tracks, the CD edition comes with a second disc. This 15-track ‘official bootleg’ (containing 1 song from each of the band’s 15 studio albums) is culled from the band’s personal archives and features a selection of previously unheard live recordings spanning 1990 to 2020.
