Interesting.  

What the heck is that title though?

They come up with some strange stuff for song titles and album titles.

Probably relates to the Tunguska event in the early 1900's. (which was even referenced in the first Ghostbusters movie)

Coup de Grace is most likely my favorite (complete) album to be released dating back to about 1992 or so... and I'm pretty damn picky.

I don't think any new release can match that effort, but I'm certainly hoping for something along those lines.

There is no beating CDG, but that doesn't mean they can't try to!

Ghost of Graceland was a valiant effort.

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is truly thrilled to announce the release of Treat's awesome new album, ”Tunguska”, which will be released on September 14, 2018. Today, the band has premiered a music video for first single, "Build The Love".

CD, Vinyl, and Digital pre-orders of "Tunguska" as well as streaming options of the new single, "Build The Love" are available here:https://www.frontiers.shop/treat/

Building on the success of their last two albums, ”Coup de Grace” (2010) and ”Ghost of Graceland” (2016), which were both released after the band’s reunion in 2006, Treat's return has been more than welcome by fans and critics alike. With the two latest albums having received praise as true masterpieces, TREAT is releasing their new album, packed with riveting rockers and seductive, soul searching melodic rock songs, on a wave of newfound creativity and high anticipation from their fanbase.

But what is "Tunguska"? “The album title is a reference to a mysterious large explosion that took place in Siberia in 1908, but metaphorically and artistically, "Tunguska" represents the last piece of the puzzle to be put in place since the band’s reunion,” says guitarist, producer and founding member Anders Wikstrom. ”It highlights the unique musicianship we have developed together over the years in the creative songwriting process, but also illustrates how we want our albums to sound and feel in the 21st century. We managed to dig deeper into the lyrical content, and musically, the dynamics in the songs and production are more distinct as we let heavy, raunchy stuff co-exist with the softer side of the band.”

”Tunguska” was once again produced by respected writer/producer, and longtime TREAT fan, Peter Mansson together with Anders Wikström, showcasing a band who, despite a thirty plus year career, are hungrier and more energetic than ever!

TREAT’s current lineup includes Robert Ernlund (vocals), Anders Wikström (guitars, backing vocals), Patrick Appelgren (keyboards, guitar, backing vocals), Jamie Borger (drums), and Pontus Egberg (bass). ”My goal has always been to capture the band in the studio when we can reflect what we are like at a live performance peak. That´s why we did not continue touring for another extended period on the back of the last album ("Ghost of Graceland") and went into the new album writing and recording process instead,” tells Anders. ”When our fans hear ”Tunguska”, this decision will speak for itself. When I listen to it, I get the same feeling I had when we finished ”Organized Crime” back in ´89, when everybody had stepped up to the plate and played as if their lives depended on it. I truly believe this is Treat's finest hour! And that goes for every single member of the band! Damn proud!”

The band is truly at the top of their game and songs like the outstanding lead single “Build The Love,” or rockers like the fabulous album opener “Progenitors,” "Always Have, Always Will”, and “Rose of Jericho” stand out as future live staples in the band’s repertoire. ”Every time we meet up with fans anywhere in the world, they are always full of praise for our current releases, which is really heartwarming as we do feel we don't have to rely on our 35-year back catalogue to attract audiences. We feel we are a better band nowadays, both as songwriters and live performers, matured just like a great red wine! After living with the album for some time, I find myself jumping in and out randomly on my choice for favorite songs and for some reason that has never been the case before. To me that's what a real album is about and what makes it worth working day and night to compete,” concludes Anders Wikstrom.

 

”Tunguska” tracklisting:
1. Progenitors
2. Always Have, Always Will
3. Best Of Enemies
4. Rose Of Jericho
5. Heartmath City
6. Creeps

It’s a good mid tempo track that seems to be building up but never goes full throttle like I was hoping for. Not the type of lead off single that will blow people away. 

Treat is pure class in the Melodic Rock world.

New single sadly not doing anything for me.  I expected it to pick up and soar and just sort of falls flat.

Hoping the next song I hear grabs me more.

Solid tune with uplifting lyrics, but not as strong as the top tracks from the last two albums

This is a song they could write in their sleep...and still be better than most of the new stuff released today.

Well I, for one, really like that. Super basic track and admittedly a really surprising lead single... but I really dig it. 

On a side note, jeez young Ernlund is looking quite ancient these days.

I like it, But still hoping for "better" on the album. Feels like a continuation of GOG which I really do like most of, but would lke to hear a song or 2 like something from CDG. Still ooking forward to this and it is definitely a pre order album!

    • What the hell?
      Wonder which band member convinced his daughter to dance in the clip?
      Kinda creepy video.
      Weird choice for a bunch of 50 year olds...
    • In theory it is D2. It is the Revolve line up with the vocalists swapped. Makes you kinda think that the only reason that was the last D2 album and no follow up is due to Poley. I remember Ravel saying there would be no more D2 as the recording process of Revolve was such hard work, and seeing as all three other members are recording together here, it kinda starts to look like the issue is with the vocalist.
    • From sleazeroxx.com: Playhouse to release new album ‘The Rock N’ Roll Circus’ on November 10th Canadian hard rockers, Playhouse, will be releasing their first new album in more than 25 years with the release of The Rock N’ Roll Circus on November 10, 2018. The group will be having a CD launch party at the Piranha Bar in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 10, 2018. Playhouse‘s “Story” on their Facebook page states (with slight edits): “Formed during the height of the 80’s hard rock invasion, five high school friends wanted to play loud! The year was 1987 and they had one goal, to be the biggest rock band to ever come out of Canada. Playhouse released two E.P..’s; 1989’s Little Monster and the follow up; Tongue, Tied & Twisted in 1990. With a reputation for high energy shows and big chorus anthems. they quickly started filling every club they played. Now armed with a dedicated fan base solidly behind them, local promoters came calling. Soon, Playhouse found themselves opening for the likes of Extreme, Killer Dwarfs,Brighton Rock, Harem Scarem and many more. Then after 8 years together in the Rock n Roll Circus, the band called it quits…and now, almost 25 years later, THEY ARE BACK! In the fall of 2016, the band reunited and entered the studio for the first time together in over 20 years with veteran recording producer and lead guitarist for Slaves on Dope, Kevin Jardine to record three new songs. The first video “On Fire” was released in September 2016 with a follow up video released a few months later for “Stand Up And Fight.” In November 2017, Playhouse returned to the stage after 25 year with their sold out comeback show in Montreal, Canada.   Check out this earlier thread on these guys: https://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/topic/35094-playhouse/        
    • no......it.......doesn't 
    • Drinking my Beaujolais nouveau (Vive La France for your beautiful traditions!!!!!) while spinning them back to back on vinyl (Jaysus, sound is incredible on both vinyls!!!!) and still GOC wipes the floor with Tunguska(what a waste of a great title, btw!). 
    • wow. I'll leave that comment there. in terms of this album - it's a boring one paced generic album. Martennson needs to regather himself for the Eclipse album next year and produce something truly exciting
