The Treatment Finding New Singer Was A Fluke

(Classic Rock) The Treatment have made their track The Devil available to stream and revealed how a YouTube trawl uncovered their singer Mitch Emms. It's taken from the British rock outfit's upcoming third album Generation Me, released on March 18 via Frontiers Music Srl.

They've also issued a short film exploring the creation of Generation Me and how they recovered from the departure of previous singer Matt Jones.

He was replaced by Mitchel Emms, a contestant on TV talent show The Voice. In the video, bassist Rick Newman says: "We lost our old singer. But we were not gonna stop, we were gonna find a new singer.

Drummer Dhani Mansworth adds: "To find a great classic rock singer, we didn't think it was possible. It was hard enough finding our original singer. Finding Mitch was an absolute fluke. At 4am I went on YouTube and searched for UK rock singer. The first video that came up was Mitch's The Voice audition, and as soon as he started singing I knew this was the guy."

They sent him a message and when he turned up to audition, they knew within minutes he was the perfect fit. The Treatment add: "He's one of the greatest singer's in the UK. He's phenomenal. A complete nutcase, a total lunatic. But his voice is great and he's fitted in great." Read more and check out the song here.
