The Treatment are currently guesting with Kiss and Motley Crue on the hottest US rock tour of 2012. Called simply 'The Tour', this run of 40-plus US/Canadian dates features rock legends Kiss and Motley Crue going head to head live for the first time since 1982; The Treatment, favourites of Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, were invited to join this run of arena dates after Sixx came across their debut 'Drink, F**k, Fight' single/video.

Two weeks into 'The Tour' and the reaction of fans and media alike has been outstanding, with 'This Might Hurt' entering the US New Artist Billboard Charts and headline dates being added along the way; in addition, the band have been interviewed by Fox TV and, in recognition of how well they are doing, a special 'meet and greet' has been organised at the newly opened Kiss Monster Mini Golf attraction in Las Vegas.

Following the US run, The Treatment will release a new single/video from 'This Might Hurt', titled 'Shake The Mountain'; the digital single will be available from November 26th, heralding a further run of UK dates with Thin Lizzy.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
