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 former HELLOWEEN drummer Mark Cross — will release a new DVD, “War Machine Live”, on November 12 in Europe via Metal Mind Productions and December 11 in the USA through MVD. The set will feature live performances filmed on March 9, 2012 at Stodola in Warsaw, Poland and August 10, 2011 at Metal Hammer Festival in Katowice, Poland, plus band interviews, on-the-road footage and the promotional video for “War Nation”, the title track of the band’s most recent studio album.
Commented Evans: “This is our first official live DVD release so we wanted to make sure it would appeal to all TANK fans, old and new. With such an extensive back catalog to choose from, we think we’ve selected some real gems that all fans of real British metal will enjoy. We’ve captured the raw energy that TANK is known for in a performance that features classic tracks such as ‘This Means War’, ‘Power Of The Hunter’ and ‘Honour And Blood’ plus new fan favourites ‘Judgement Day’ and ‘Phoenix Rising’. Also featured is a live version of the new song ‘Don’t Dream In The Dark’ from our latest album, ‘War Nation’.”

The band plans to promote the DVD on a tour in Europe in December.
Commented Evans: “It’s been a while since our last shows earlier this year in Scandinavia and Poland, so we’re looking forward to hitting the road again and making some noise. We’ll be adding songs from our new album, ‘War Nation’, to the set plus a couple from ‘War Machine’ plus all the old classics. The tour will be announced in the coming weeks.”
“War Nation” was released on June 5 via MVD (one day earlier in Europe through Metal Mind Productions). The follow-up to 2010’s “War Machine” was helmed by new hotshot producer Phil Kinman at his west London studios.
