Latest Tank Events
Formed in 1980 by rock and roll singer and guitarist Algy Ward, Tank initially comprised Mark Brabbs on drums, Peter Brabbs on guitar while Algy on bass and vocals. They released their debut album ‘Filth Hounds of Hades’ in 1982 that was extremely well received by the critics. The album scored a four and a half star rating by Allmusic. Produced by Eddie Clarke, the album was considered to be one of the most significant contributions to the UK’s new wave metal scene. With songs like ‘Filth Hounds of Hades’, ‘Who Needs Love Songs’, ‘Turn Your Head Around’ and ‘Struck by Lightning’, the album managed to sell thousands of copies worldwide. Tank became a popular figure in the metal and punk music scene and was frequently compared to another highly popular English rock band Motorhead.
After the successful debut album, Tank continued to enthrall fans with their music. The band released four more albums including ‘Tank’, ‘Honour & Blood’, ‘This Means War’ and ‘Power of Hunter’. The albums did well with the metal fans but did not impress majority of the critics. All the albums failed to make a similar impact as Tank’s debut album did. The band also went through several lineup changes during this time and saw new blood like Gary Taylor, Michael Bettel, Graeme Crallan, Cliff Evans and Mick Tucker. By 1989, the band’s commercial fortunes were declining and so the metal group decided to disband.
After almost eight years of hiatus, Algy managed to reunite the band and resurrected Tank in 1997. With Bruce Bisland on drums, Cliff Evans and Mick Tucker on guitars and Algy on vocals, Tank began touring around Europe as well as Japan, playing in front of excited eighty’s metal fans. The live concerts were well received by the audience and Tank began working on a new album. In 2002, the band released its first album after the eight year hiatus, ‘Still At War’. Since then, the band has released more music including the albums ‘War Machine’ and most recently ‘Breath of the Pit’.
Tank’s live performances have always been famous for keeping the audiences glued to the stage. The band’s stage presence along with captivating live acts leaves the crowd spellbound. Tank will be playing at several renowned music venues throughout the US such as Akron Civic Theatre, House of Blues – Houston, Atlanta Civic Centre, Chaifetz Arena, Machine Shop in Flint, Rochester’s Blue Cross Arena and Paramount Theatre in Huntington amongst other locations. The fans are eagerly waiting to catch Algy and other members play Tank’s hit singles like ‘Echoes of Distant Battle’, ‘Crazy Horses’, ‘Turn Your Head Around’, ‘Stormtrooper’ and ‘Don’t Walk Away’.
