Therapy? – Living In The Shadow Of The Terrible Thing (Single)

Seminal Irish three piece rockers Therapy? have been around since the early 90’s, and have been there done that and got the t-shirt for most things.

Sadly misplacing their form with the release of the Suicide Pact album, I was somewhat cautious when there was news of a new album and what it would bode for a band that I grew up listening to.

Living In The Shadow is the first single to be released from the new album (“A Brief Crack of Light”) and I am relived to say it is finally a return to form for what was once a truly ground breaking act.

Right from the off set, this has classic Therapy? stamped all over it be it with the opening riffs, the gothic inspired lyrics or the fact it screams Troublegum era Therapy?.

A contender for the single of 2012? I think so – I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.

Rating: 9/10
