||THE TREATMENT ANNOUNCE FEBRUARY UK SHOWS PLUS A BRAND NEW LONDON DATE
16th January 2012
The Treatment have announced five UK dates for early February 2012, the majority of which are rescheduled from the band's 'Medication To The Nation' UK headline tour in December of last year.
Unfortunately, some of these shows had to be postponed due to vocalist Matt Jones falling ill, but Matt has now made a full recovery and the band is ready to return to the fray once more.

The list of dates is as follows:-
1 – The Boileroom, Guildford
2 – The Garage, London (HMV 'Next Big Thing' night with fellow Spinefarm artists Reckless Love & Jettblack)
03 – Corporation, Sheffield
07 – Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff
09 – The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton
These shows follow in the wake of an ultra-busy 2011, which saw the band signing to Spinefarm, releasing their debut single/video ('Drink, F**k, Fight') and album 'This Might Hurt' (both on the Spinefarm label), touring Europe with Alice Cooper, making a Halloween appearance with Skindred and Therapy at the O2 Academy in Birmingham, guesting with Motorhead in Belgium, returning to the sold-out Hard Rock Hell event in Prestatyn, North Wales, then rounding off the year with their first ever UK headline run under the 'Medication For The Nation' banner.
Despite being fresh-faced youngsters, The Treatment have influences drawn largely from the classic names of the hard rock genre, including AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Def Leppard, Aerosmith and Guns n' Roses; add to this a deep and collective regard for the works of the Clash, the Pistols and early Dr Feelgood, and you have a band who may look as though they're barely into long trousers, but whose music is all about big hooks and confident swagger.
