The Areola Treat's new album is now available for download on CD Baby. I've been on about this band ever since having seen them in a live performance in belgium a while ago. The drummer and vocalist had quite an impact on me, and I kept following them on Last FM and created a few blogs reviewing them myself. The frontwoman herself has a charm about her and the drummer's punding is quite simply astounding.
CD Baby Indipendent Artist Reviews: This week, 'Pleasure Machines', the new, self-released album from The Areola Treat. Read, listen and buy!
The Areola Treat are an indie/sludge/art punk band, formed in Malta in 2006. Inspired by UK-based, late 1970s punk and rock and roll, besides the burgeoning punk and post punk revival, The Areola Treat are arguably a definitive art punk ensemble, mostly due to their detailed tightness, blood-curdling female screeching, growling vocals and punchy guitars in the first few years of the band being formed, and more recently with their somewhat more political stance and echoes of psychedelia and post rock. Their first self-entitled studio ep, The Areola Treat was released in 2008 under Belgian label Kinky Star. The band's first self-released studio album 'Pleasure Machines', was released in April 2011.
The Areola Treat will be performing in Malta, Europe, at Voice Of A Generation, in Ball Street, Paceville on the 27th August.
