Alternative punk-rock trio Therapy?’s forthcoming album “Cleave” will be unleashed to the world on September 21st, 2018, through Marshall Records.

The band have just launched a brand new lyric video for the opening track “Wreck It Like Beckett”, which is a statement of intent to start over and sets the tone for the new chapter the band are about to embark on.

You can view the music video below.

Andy Cairns says this about “Wreck It Like Beckett”:
“This song originated with Michael. He told me he had a riff which reminded him of "She Watch Channel Zero" by Public Enemy and he sent me over a bass riff, a guitar riff and a drum beat. I thought the riff was incredible, and so we chopped it up in the rehearsal room, to make it more stop-start, like [classic Therapy? tracks] "Knives" or "Screamager", and that really worked. Lyrically, it’s about trying to start anew. The reason that [Irish playwright and poet] Samuel Beckett is referenced in the title is that each time Beckett began a new project he used to imagine that he was sitting at a desk and could swipe his arm across the desk to clear away all the sheets of paper so that he could make a fresh start. This is a song that sets the album up as a new chapter for Therapy?”.

You can now pre-order the album via Amazon, iTunes and Pledge Music, here.

“Cleave” (auto-antonym) i. To prise apart ii. To bring together

Therapy?’s fifteenth studio album, “Cleave” will be released on September 21st, 2018. Roughly themed around notions of duality and division, the band’s follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed “Disquiet” - and their first recording for new label Marshall Records – is a sharply focused, fiercely intelligent, impassioned and empowering set of songs from a band operating at a creative and artistic peak. A scathing, incisive state-of-the-nation address, investigating the schisms in contemporary society and the motivations of those seeking to propagate disjuncture, it’s a powerful, challenging, uncompromising collection from a band never afraid to confront and dissect humanity’s darkest impulses.

From the thrillingly propulsive assault of “Wreck It Like Beckett” via the addictive “Callow” (the album's first single, out now) and the unsettling “I Stand Alone” to the disquieting, bleakly beautiful “No Sunshine”, the ten tracks which make up “Cleave” coalesce to paint a portrait of a fractured, dislocated world rent by unprincipled, mendacious masters.
