The Treatment are inspired by the great traditions of the hard rock genre, with a dash of punk spirit.
SINCE 2008, when 15-year-old schoolboy drummer Dhani Mansworth decided to put a band together, inspired by the great names of rock (AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, etc.), the search was on to find young local players skilled beyond their years. Then intense practise and writing sessions began. With school days now behind them (but only just), they opted to move into the Mansworth family home, where they could eat, sleep and breathe the music they loved, without distractions, without compromise.
The next period (2012-13) would see the band hitting the road with a vengeance, combining headline tours with guest appearances and festival slots around the globe; not only did they open shows for a host of rock heavyweights (Alice Cooper, Slash, Status Quo, Motorhead, Thin Lizzy, Steel Panther, Black Stone Cherry, etc.), they also appeared at festivals such as Sonisphere, High Voltage, Download and Hard Rock Hell in the UK, Graspop in Belgium, and the inaugural Ozzfest in Japan.
