The Treatment, who are in the midst of a European tour as Special Guests to Alice Cooper, have now filmed a video for 'The Doctor' – the second featured track from their 'This Might Hurt' debut album, released via Spinefarm Records.
'The Doctor' is the follow-up to the band's first single/video, 'Drink, F**k, Fight', which gained significant international attention and was a highlighted track on Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx's US radio show.

In addition to the Alice Cooper gigs, The Treatment were also invited to open a major show for Motorhead in Belgium (Brussels, October 28th), and now their own headline UK dates have been confirmed – the 'Medication For The Nation' tour, the first time the band have headlined a run of shows in their home country.
As well as taking them to 16 venues covering England, Scotland and Wales, the tour also includes an appearance at the regular 'Hard Rock Hell' event in Prestatyn, North Wales on Friday 2nd December; the band take to the stage at 1.50pm – the second time they have appeared at this particular festival, which is already sold-out.
A five strong outfit based in the Cambridge area of the UK, The Treatment may still be tender in years, but their influences are largely drawn from the truly classic names of the hard rock genre – the likes of AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Def Leppard, Aerosmith and Guns n' Roses; add to this a deep and collective regard for the works of the Clash, the Pistols and early Dr Feelgood, and you have a band who may look as though they're barely into long trousers (drummer Dhani Mansworth turned 18 this summer), but whose music is all about big hooks and confident swagger.
