In March 2023 they toured the UK with Hayseed Dixie , this summer they supported the likes of From The Jam, The Undertones, Mad Dog Mcrea & Terrorvision , in short there's lots of exciting things happening for the Sheffield folk rockers. 
Treason's highly anticipated self titled debut album was released in January 2022 and received much critical acclaim, the bands next album lands in September 2023.
It's a high octane, knees up, feel good, party atmosphere kind of performance, leaving audiences with smiles all round reaching for a fresh round of pints, or two, or more likely three, it's just that kind of music.
