About The Treatment (Created June 13, 2013)
High energy is the best description you can give to The Treatment, a five-man band formed in 2008 while founder Dhani Mansworth was still in school in Cambridge. Though he was just 15 at the time, the youngster raised on the sounds of Aerosmith, ACDC and Led Zeppelin had a true vision and even bigger dreams for the kind of band he wanted to put together.
In the course of figuring out what you wanna do with your life, who better to guide you than a parent? Mansworth enlisted his father guitarist to help him bring the pieces of The Treatment together. They started by pulling in 18-year-old Ben Brookland, whose guitar style immediately stood out. Next came bass player Rick Newman (aka Swoggle), also just 15. Then there was Tangore Grey, a high school friend who could also shred guitar, and a six-month search for a vocalist ended with the hire of 17-year-old Matt Jones.
A year after their formation, these five guys came together at The Borderline as a supporting act to Voodoo Six. In the audience was Derek Oliver, who was impressed enough to offer The Treatment an immediate contract. Soon after, the band put the finishing touches on their debut album, "This Might Hurt," recorded at Barnyard Studios and mixed by Tony Newton of Voodoo Six.
Describing their sound as guitar rock with a touch of Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Sex Pistols, The Treatment was chosen by KISS and Motley Crue as the opening band of 'The Tour' in 2012.
