Britain's THERAPY? have inked a new worldwide record deal with Eagle Rock Records.
The band, who were previously signed to Ark 21 Records, have commenced the recording sessions for their next studio album, tentatively due in early 2003.
"It's exciting to be with a label who understand rock bands and we're looking forward to giving our fans the best THERAPY? record yet," the group said in a statement.
"We recently spent two weeks in Real World Studios near Bath rehearsing our new material and working on some of the stuff we had demoed during the summer," continued the statement. "It was really cool to be back in the same studio where we recorded 'Infernal Love' and the relaxed atmosphere plus the musical chemistry between the band members was very productive.
"We're currently in Parkgate Studios near Hastings and have started recording the rhythm tracks for the album. Neil Cooper (ex-BEYOND/CABLE) is playing drums and doing a phenomenal job. Even at this early stage things are sounding awesome, the songs have some quite diverse elements whilst retaining the THERAPY? dark edge. Main elements are... unusual rhythms, big riffs, melodic vocal hooks plus tons of frenetic energy. Producing the record is Pete Bartlett who some of you may know as our 'live sound' engineer. He has an excellent ear for music and has managed to get some great performances out of us.
"Not sure what will turn up on the album but here's a few songtitles for you... 'If It Kills Me' (played live at the summer festivals, now reworked), 'My Voodoo Doll', 'Hey Satan You Rock' (again played at summer festivals), 'Stand In Line'."
