THE TREATMENT, the five-piece rock troupe from Cambridge who have recently appeared at both the Sonisphere & High Voltage festivals, will tour Europe as Special Guests to Alice Cooper on the legendary artist’s ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare’ European tour from October 12th – November 14th.
This month-long trek takes in shows in eight different countries, including Germany, France, Holland and the UK, where The Treatment will be sole support in Sheffield & Bristol (October 25th & 26th); the remaining UK shows will see the New York Dollsguesting.
Prior to this tour, The Treatment will have their debut album, ‘This Might Hurt’, released through the Spinefarm label on September 5th 2011.
Featuring tracks such as ‘Departed’, ‘The Doctor’ and new single/video ‘Drink, Fuck, Fight’, this 12-track release (plus two bonus tracks) is currently collecting considerable acclaim – not just in the UK but also in Canada, Germany, the US & Japan, and indeed the band are expecting to visit Japan for the first time later this year.
In support of the September release, a ‘launch party’ will take place at the Borderline in London on Tuesday, September 6th; in keeping with the theme of the album artwork (a nurse with a chainsaw – not sure if you can get this on the NHS?!) and ‘Drink…’ video, those attending are being encouraged to come in medical attire, or at least sporting a mocked-up ‘injury’ or ‘wound’. The person judged to have made most effort on the night will receive a signed Yamaha guitar
