TANKARD To Hit Studio This Week

Tuesday, 28th January 2014

German alcoholic thrash metal act TANKARD will enter Studio 23 in Frankfurt, Germany this eek to begin recording the follow-up to their acclaimed 2012 album A Girl Called Cerveza. Entitled R.I.B. (Rest In Beer), the new CD will be released in the summer of 2014 via Nuclear Blast.

Taking inspiration from the motto “never change a winning team,” TANKARD is working with producer Michael Mainx (BÖHSE ONKELZ, DER W, D-A-D, DISBELIEF), who helmed the band’s last effort. TANKARD has also chosen to use Patrick Strogulski, who created the artwork for A Girl Called Cerveza and is also a student of Sebastian Krüger, the artist that was responsible for TANKARD’s previous album artwork up to the 2012 release.

Comments Mainx: “Three times is the charm — I’m totally looking forward to have my hands on the controllers for TANKARD for the third time in year 2 after the band anniversary! Only a few more days left before we will take off recording R.I.B. at Frankfurt studio. This is gonna be interesting…”

Adds TANKARD vocalist Andreas “Gerre” Geremia: “We can hardly wait to be nailing down 10 new songs with Micha and are looking forward to a hopefully productive collaboration!”
