Disquiet is the fourteenth studio album by the band Therapy?, and the first album to be released on new UK label Amazing Record Co. Produced by Tom Dalgety, it was released on 23 March 2015.

Background[edit]

Demo sessions for the album began at Blast Studios, Newcastle, England on 18 February 2014. The band laid down 18 tracks and completed pre-production on 28 February 2014.[2] The album proper was recorded from 17 April to 30 April 2014 at Blast Studios.[3] The albums' release was delayed by almost a year due to their record company Blast Records shutting down and the band then signing with fledgling Amazing Record Co..

Pre-orders of the album were announced on 23 February 2015 and included an instant download of two album tracks and an exclusive pre-order track called We Kill People. A digital only single called Still Hurts, featuring two more non-album tracks, was released on 9 March 2015. A promo video directed by Sitcom Soldiers was premiered on 3 March 2015.

Disquiet reached no. 79 in the UK Charts[4] which was the bands' highest chart placing since 1999's Suicide Pact - You First. The album was originally released on CD and download but the LP version was delayed release until 1 June 2015.
