TREASON

TREASON - A London based heavy (make that extremely HEAVY!!) rock trio

Treason started in 1988 when John Seaton, singer with underground thrash act APOCALYPSE, joined the original line-up. They went on to tour extensively and were very busy on the circuit at the time working alongside other British thrash metal acts like Slammer, Xentrix and Onslaught. Treason also supported name acts like Neurosis, Warrior Soul, Gwar and Bad Brains. They never secured a record deal but built up quite a decent following around the country. The band changed its name to ASHES TO ASHES in 1992 before finally splitting after a year or so. Some of the line up went on to form PULKAS who were signed briefly to Noise records at that time

John re-surfaced in 2004 with a new project called EGO PRIME, featuring musicians from HAWKWIND and STRAY. The band only gigged a couple of times but did record an album, although he was disappointed with the results. Logistical problems led to the band dissolving within a year or so and then John decided to resurrect the TREASON name. John found, (at last!) the right men for the job! - STEVE REDDIHOUGH from cult punk/rock `n` roll band THE MACHINES stepped in on bass and DANNY ROWE (drums) who formerly worked with London rock act STREET LEGAL, completed the line up - Treason went straight into the studio upon formation to record a 12 track album - four songs from which are featured on thier official site - using material from the aforementioned Ego Prime album plus songs written in the original Treason days. De-tuned, re-worked and much heavier. At the moment this album is available exclusively via thier website, or from the band directly at live gigs, although of course, a multi-million dollar recording and distribution deal is right around the corner(!).

The band have now started a series of gigs around the UK, playing many excellent touring venues like 02 Academy (Islington), Chinnerys (Southend), The Forum (Hatfield), The Engine Room (Brighton), Blue Rooms (Hereford), Robin 2 (Wolverhampton), The Peel (Kingston), and many good London venues such as Dingwalls, Purple Turtle, The Bull & Gate and The Bridge House.

Be prepared for a night of seriously heavy sonic violence!!
