As recently announced, Metal Mind Productions extended the recording deal with the British heavy metal legend – TANK. Through the years, Metal Mind have re-released the band's back catalogue and released their recent albums “War Machine” (2010) and “War Nation” (2012). TANK’s forthcoming album titled “Valley of Tears” is scheduled for release on June, 8th in Europe and June, 9th in North America (via MVD).
 
Cliff Evans, TANK’s guitarist, comments: "The title comes from the famous Tank battle during the 1973 Yom Kippur War where one side was massively outnumbered but fought on regardless and against all odds secured a heroic victory. We feel that our style of metal is slowly disappearing and now we must also fight against the odds to keep it alive. We hope ‘Valley of Tears’ will inspire other bands and fans alike to never forget what real metal is all about. The Mighty Tank Rolls On!”

British heavy metal legend TANK return in June with their tenth studio album titled “Valley Of Tears”. Today the band reveal its artwork and tracklist.
 
TANK “Valley of Tears”
 

 
Tracklist:
 
1. War Dance
2. Valley
3. Of Tears
4. Eye Of A Hurricane
5. Hold On
6. Make A Little Time
7. Heading For
8. Eternity 
9. Living A Fantasy
10. World On Fire
11. Hold Your Fire
 
 
Cliff Evans, TANK’s guitarist, comments the album: “‘Valley of Tears’ will be our first album release  featuring the amazing vocal talents of former Dragonforce frontman ZP Theart and marks a new era for the band. He’s injected so much new energy and inspiration into the band since joining us in 2013 as part of our touring line up for shows in South America, Europe and the US. Now it’s time to capture this sound on our new record 'Valley of Tears' which is scheduled for release in June 2015. To complement ZP’s vocals we now have one of the best rhythm sections in metal: Bobby Schottkowski, formerly drumming with Sodom and current Blind Guardian member - Barend Courbois on bass. Together with Mick Tucker and myself on guitars we’re ready to take another big step forward in the evolution of TANK and make another metal album of great quality that will surely stand the test of time.
Our last two releases ‘War Machine’ and ‘War Nation’ (Metal Mind Productions) were two of our bestselling albums and featured amazing performances from former Rainbow/Malmsteen and current Schenker vocalist - Doogie White. Now it's time to move on to the next chapter. ‘Valley of Tears’ is heading in a much heavier direction and as always will be driven to the max by our trademark Gibson Les Paul/Marshall stack wall of sound. Production will be handled once again by upcoming mega-producer Phil Kinman.”
 
The band return to Italy for the first time since 2010 to headline four shows. The list of gigs includes the following dates:
April 1st ROME - Jailbreak Club
April 2nd FLORENCE - Cycle Club
April 3rd BOLOGNE - Freakout Club
April 4th MILAN - Blue Rose Club
 
More dates in Europe to be announced soon!
 
Evans: “We recently played an exclusive show aboard the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise in the Caribbean to showcase some of the new songs for the first time which went down extremely well with the fans. The cruise was such a great experience and we highly recommend booking yourself on the boat for next year. We're really looking forward to getting back out on tour next month when we play our first Italian dates since 2010. We'll be playing some songs from the new album plus a great selection of TANK classics. For more tour info go to www.tankofficial.com”
 
“Valley Of Tears” is scheduled for release on June, 8th in Europe and June, 9th in USA (via MVD).

"Valley Of Tears", the new album by the British heavy metal legend TANK, has had its release date pushed back to September, 18th from the previously announced June, 8th. Cliff Evans, the band’s guitarist comments the situation in an official statement:
 
“We’ve decided, along with our label Metal Mind, to put the release date for our 10th album ‘Valley of Tears’ back until September 2015. Originally planned for release in June, we now feel that the album really deserves more time and attention during the mixing stage to get it exactly how we want it. Having ZP Theart on vocals has upped our game once again and the attention to detail in the albums production requires more time to get it exactly how we want it. ‘Valley of Tears’  will definitely be worth the wait!”
 
Evans comments also the recording process:
“Bobby (Schottkowski) recorded the drum tracks in Germany with his producer Waldemar Sorychta who's previous work includes albums for Lacuna Coil, Tiamat and Sodom to name but a few. The drums are the backbone of the album and they seriously kick ass! Barend (Courbois) laid down the bass guitar in Holland a couple of days before heading out on a sold out world tour with German metal legends Blind Guardian. He’ll be back with us for our festival shows later this summer. The guitars were recorded in London under the guidance of producer Phil Kinman who is the master at capturing the sound of a Les Paul through a Marshall amp. No frills. Just awesome power! The album will be mastered by Ade Emsley who recently undertook the task of remastering the entire Iron Maiden catalogue for 24 bit iTunes release. They’ll be some teasers coming up over the summer including a video for the title track ‘Valley of Tears’ and more tour dates will be announced soon.”
