Northern Irish legends Therapy? have announced details of their upcoming 16th album.

Entitled Hard Cold Fire, the record is due out on May 5 via Marshall, and hears the trio essentially make the opposite of a lockdown album. “When we began to rehearse the songs, we realised there was an empathetic quality to them,” explains vocalist and guitarist Andy Cairns. “We wanted to make something that was a bit more relatable, and less standoffish and claustrophobic – which we have a history of, and it stands in places – but we wanted to make something more approachable and open.”

Adds bassist Michael McKeegan: “We wanted this album to be one that felt good to play live, almost a release after this period of stasis, but then also not dwelling on the whole situation – we’re moving forward, and we wanted that energy to be there.”

Get the first taste of that with new single Joy below:
