Treat announce 9:th studio album “The Endgame”

Frontiers Music Srl is proud to announce the forthcoming release of Swedish melodic rock band Treat’s ninth studio album, “The Endgame” on April 8, 2022. The first single and video from the album, ‘Home Of The Brave’ is out today.

Over the years, both prior to and after their reunion, Treat have established themselves as leaders in the Swedish melodic hard rock scene. With bassist Nalle Påhlsson (who appeared on “Coup De Grace”) back in the ranks, vocalist Robert Ernlund, guitarist Anders ”Gary” Wikström, drummer Jamie Borger, and keyboardist Patrick Appelgren have once again set a course for yet another exciting musical journey. Twelve songs in total, including uptempo rockers, ballads, ’80s sounding gems, and ones with musical influences beyond the ordinary, make this album another definitive statement by the quintet from the south of Stockholm.  Produced by Peter Mansson (who also helmed “Tunguska” and “Ghost Of Graceland”), “The Endgame,” by all means qualifies as a true classic album from Treat.

“We always want to make albums that are better than the last one. The album title, to me, represents many things about Treat in this day and age, including the sincerity and history of the band. But also the fight to survive as a band like brothers in arms, through all these years of highs and lows, tears and laughter. Seriously, we grew up together in the ’80s, learning how to make our brand of Melodic Hard Rock by heart and we still continue to work that hard even today. We’re as close as a family and we’re blessed to still be able to get in the ring and be on top of our game,” says guitarist Anders Wikstrom. For a band that’s been going for nearly four decades, inspiration and the drive to create fresh material still propels Treat.

Most of us have our own studios at home, where we do additional tracking, but to get the sound we wanted for “The Endgame”, we did take our time to find the right recording rooms and studio facilities, and the result speaks for itself!””Peter [Mansson] is one of the best rock producers I know, and also a longtime friend. He knows us inside out, pros and cons, and will always give an arm and a leg to make our vision come true. His contribution to this album as producer, recording and mixing engineer is outstanding. He´s also an excellent musician and he’s become almost like a sixth member of the gang, a fantastic guy and we love him,” adds Wikstrom.”We really hope our fans will love this album as much we do because we made it for YOU!” he concludes.
