Tank – new video out soon / festival update

British heavy metal legend TANK, returned recently from three days filming in the mountainous region of Mojacar, Spain. With spectacular scenery and perfect weather conditions it was the ideal location for the backdrop to the video of the title track from their latest album "Valley of Tears". The video is scheduled for release at the end of May. A little teaser will be ready in a couple of weeks.
"Valley Of Tears", the most recent album by the British heavy metal legend TANK, was released in late September 2015. It is their first album release featuring the amazing vocal talents of former Dragonforce frontman ZP Theart. The vocalist injected new energy and inspiration into the band since joining them in 2013 and now it's time to capture this sound on the new record! To complement ZP's vocals TANK now have one of the best rhythm sections in metal: Bobby Schottkowski, formerly drumming with Sodom and current Blind Guardian member - Barend Courbois on bass. Together with Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans on guitars they ready to take another big step forward in the evolution of TANK and make another metal album of great quality that will surely stand the test of time.
The band's last two releases 'War Machine' and 'War Nation' (both released on Metal Mind Productions) were two of their bestselling albums and featured amazing performances from former Rainbow/Malmsteen and current Schenker vocalist - Doogie White. "Valley of Tears" is heading in a much heavier direction and as always will be driven to the max by their trademark Gibson Les Paul/Marshall stack wall of sound. The album was produced by Phil Kinman.
TANK will be performing at the FULL METAL MOUNTAIN Festival 2017. For more info go here: http://www.full-metal-mountain.com/en/
