Album Notes
The band Treat + Release is drummer/vocalist Brian Doherty, guitarist Todd Novak and bassist John Yates.

Loud guitars, memorable hooks and real rock ‘n’ roll--that’s what the band Treat + Release is about. And in a sense, that’s the beginning AND the end of the story. After that, it’s all about the music and letting it do the talking.

By the time we recorded this album, the three of us had been in the trenches of the NYC, Hoboken and Woodstock music scenes for some time. As far as I was concerned, I was grateful for my work as a freelance drummer with bands like XTC, They Might Be Giants, Madder Rose, Chip Taylor, Lonnie Liston Smith, Ben Folds and Frank Black but I could feel the ceiling beginning to lower. I felt confined and could not envision sustaining my drummer-for-hire life much longer. The music business is at times tough, cliquish, full of whackos, narcissists and shameless self-promoters. For a while the three of us had been the backing band for other artists and bands. It was time to record our own material and make our own album. Thus, the band Treat + Release was born. Recording this album was restorative and enabled us to rekindle our love of rock ‘n’ roll music.

After all, Treat + Release is our rock ‘n’ roll calling. A righting of the ship. It's a reinstatement of that blend of song, low end, attitude, unfettered guitars and analogue sound whose sum can equal none other than classic rock. The antithesis of market research, crunched numbers, manufactured celebrities, formulaic songwriting and protools that dominate much of today’s music world. T + R was recorded onto 2-inch tape and hearkens back to a bygone era of real rock 'n' roll.

We hope you enjoy it.

Brian Doherty, NYC 2012
