TANKARD Issues New Album UpdateWednesday, 11th December 2013
German alcoholic thrash metal act TANKARD are currently working on the follow-up to their 2012 album, A Girl Called Cerveza. The new album will be titled R.I.B. and is set to be released in summer 2014 via Nuclear Blast.
Taking inspiration from the motto “never change a winning team”, the guys will enter the studio in late January to kick off the recording with producer Michael Mainx (BÖHSE ONKELZ, DER W, D-A-D, DISBELIEF), who produced the last album. The band have also chosen to use Patrick Strogulski who created the artwork for A Girl Called Cerveza and is also a student of Sebastian Krüger who created the band’s previous album artwork up to the 2012 release.
Mastermind/vocalist Gerre states: “After the highest chart position in the band’s history with A Girl Called Cerveza, we are looking forward to work again with Michael Mainx – to record the next thrash hammer! Currently we’re working hard to finish the last few songs for the album and I can promise that this time the techno influences are greatly scaled back… joking aside, if it’s called TANKARD, you will always get TANKARD – otherwise let yourself be surprised!”
