Therapy? Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Therapy?.

Diamond Oz: First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to answer these questions. I’d like to start with your new album, "A Brief Crack Of Light" which will be released in the United States next month. Can you explain the meaning behind the title?

The album title comes from a quote by the Russian writer, Nabokov "the cradle hangs above an abyss and common sense tells us our existence is a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness".
