TANKARD Issues First Video From “R.I.B.” Recording SessionsThursday, 13th February 2014
German alcoholic thrashers TANKARD have issued the first studio video from the recording sessions for their new album, R.I.B. (“Rest in Beer”). The album is set for a June 20 release via Nuclear Blast.
The first video report from the studio in which TANKARD manager Uwe “Buffo” Schnädelbach and drummer Olaf Zissel explain the recording progress and reveal some new details of the album.
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!”
