To celebrate more than a decade of working together, the band members of THE TREAT have lovingly and carefully personally assembled a retrospective compilation album, highlighting the quality and diversity of the band’s work over 4 critically albums.

‘Sound Bites’ displays THE TREAT’s spirit of experimentation and their ability to play and master a wide ranging number of genres, seamlessly moving from hard rock and prog, to psychedelia, folk and all points in between. All are presented here on some of the best songs from their catalogue, for your listening pleasure.
