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!”
