Legendary German alcoholic thrash metal act TANKARD is currently working on the follow up to their highly acclaimed 2012 album, ‘A Girl Called Cerveza’. The new album will be titled ‘R.I.B.’ (Rest In Beer) 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 January 2014 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 TANKARD’s previous album artwork up to the 2012 release.
Mastermind 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!”
Until the release of the new album, Nuclear Blast is offering fans a series of reissues covering the highlights of the TANKARD discography, including extensive bonus material!
