Joining them, is a pair of the finest bands ever to come from Northern Ireland in the form of Therapy? and The Answer. Punk metallers Therapy? have been laying waste to audiences and breaking down barriers for thirty -three years now, and have just celebrated their much-delayed 'So Much for the Thirty Year Plan' anniversary run. With the multi-million selling ‘Troublegum’ the band broke through into the public consciousness and has stayed there ever since.
Taking a different musical route, The Answer are soaked in a bluesy hard rock that takes all the best elements of the classic bands of the 70’s and brings them together in an irresistible package that burns with a passionate soul. Having shared stages with the likes of Whitesnake, the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and The Who, it was the dream come true of being asked to open for AC/DC on the giants' Black Ice World Tour. Following a hiatus, the band are back and determined to make up for lost time and are guaranteed to be a huge hit at Stonedead.
