TANK: New Album Cover, Track Listing Revealed

British power metal mercenaries TANK — featuring Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans on guitar alongside ex-RAINBOW/YNGWIE MALMSTEEN frontman Doogie White and ex-BRUCE DICKINSON bassist Chris Dale and drummer Steve Hopgood — are putting the finishing touches on their new album, “War Nation”, for a June 5 release via MVD (one day earlier in Europe through Metal Mind Productions). The follow-up to 2010’s “War Machine” is being helmed by new hotshot producer Phil Kinman at his west London studios.

Commented Evans: “The [cover] painting was done by infamous London graffiti artist Jay Bryce exclusively for TANK. We’ve always admired his work and it’s an honor to be the first band to feature his artwork on an album cover.”

“War Nation” track listing:

01. War Nation
02. Song For The Dead
03. Justice For All
04. Don’t Dream In The Dark
05. Grace Of God
06. Wings Of Heaven
07. Hammer And Nails
08. One Good Reason
09. State Of The Union
10. W.M.L.A.

TANK‘s March 9 concert at Stodola in Warsaw, Poland was professionally recorded and filmed for the band’s fist official live DVD, to be released later in the year via Metal Mind Productions. Apart from the material recorded in Warsaw, the DVD will also contain footage of TANK‘s appearance at Metal Hammer Festival (August 10, 2011 in Katowice, Poland), a warm-up gig in Chorzów (March 8, 2012), along with interviews with bandmembers and other bonus material.

TANK‘s most recent album, “War Machine”, was released on October 25, 2010 in Europe via Metal Mind Productions (December 7, 2010 in the U.S. through MVD). The production was handled by Pedro Ferreira (THE DARKNESS, THERAPY?, MEAT LOAF) and the bulk of the recording was done at Pedrock Studios in London. Drums were laid down by Tony Newton at Steve Harris‘ (IRON MAIDEN) Barnyard Studios.
