Therapy? have premiered a lyric video for their new single Wreck It Like Beckett exclusively with Louder.

The song will feature on their upcoming album Cleave, which is set to arrive on September 21 via Marshall Records.

Therapy? vocalist and guitarist Andy Cairns tells Louder: “This song originated with bassist Michael McKeegan. 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 Knives or Screamager – and that really worked." 

Cairns continues: “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?.”

Therapy? will head out on the road in support of Cleave from October, with dates planned in the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. Find details below.
