THERAPY?'s 'Crooked Timber' To Be Released On Limited-Edition White Vinyl

Global Music has announced the release of THERAPY?'s new album, "Crooked Timber", on limited-edition white vinyl, available from March 30.

In the '90s, THERAPY? self-released a number of vinyl recordings until the bandmembers were told by various companies that "there wasn't a market for it anymore."

As avid music buyers themselves, THERAPY?'s members reminisce: “We still remember the thrill of buying vinyl, colored punk singles, metal picture discs, noise bands on splattered vinyl. DR2 were prepared to release a vinyl version of 'Crooked Timber', so we jumped at the chance to give our fans something special to remember too.”

A final word of advice from frontman, Andy Cairns: "Just don't leave your copy in front of a radiator!"

Due on March 23 via Global Music, "Crooked Timber" was produced by Andy Gill, a founding member and guitarist for the English rock group GANG OF FOUR, considered among the most influential post-punk bands. Gill also produced much of GANG OF FOUR's output, and albums for many other artists, including the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, THE JESUS LIZARD, THE STRANGLERS, THE FUTUREHEADS, MICHAEL HUTCHENCE, KILLING JOKE and THE YOUNG KNIVES.

According to the group, "Crooked Timber" focuses more on rhythm, rather than melody. While it is a heavy recording, it’s not exactly the obvious path for THERAPY? Frontman Andy Cairns explains: "I guess we’re always challenging just what makes us THERAPY? After so many years, if we were formulaic about it, we'd have gotten bored with the band long ago. The album was written together as a band, and each track has its own concept and inspirations. They took a while to write and we've taken our time to write them."
