Orig­i­nally formed in Lu­ton dur­ing the late 70s, hard rock­ers High Trea­son have a che­quered ca­reer. Record­ing start­ing with a promis­ing early sin­gle, Satur­day Night Spe­cial back in 1980. Their first al­bum, Ra­dio Will Find Me was re­leased in 2007 and af­ter a line-up reshuf­fle their lat­est, Ev­ery­thing’s Gonna Change has ap­peared. It’s a hope­ful ti­tle and with a col­lec­tion of 11 melodic rock songs, things may well be look­ing up. This is classy writ­ing with strong per­for­mances all round demon­strat­ing real un­der­stand­ing of what makes this genre work. There’s some good dual gui­tar work from Mal­colm Scott and Paul Bai­ley on the re-recorded Satur­day Night Spe­cial. There are guest ap­pear­ances too from El­liott Ran­dall (Steely Dan) on Too Fast and Ben Matthews (Thun­der) on Last Name’s Done, which adds an ex­tra di­men­sion. This is good, hon­est Bri­tish rock, strong on melody and well-de­liv­ered.
