"R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)", the new album from German beer lovers and cult thrashers TANKARD, entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 41.
States TANKARD vocalist Andreas "Gerre" Geremia: "I never thought I'd live to see this day — awesome! Just this once I think I'll have a beer on this in honor of this occasion!"
The video for the "R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)" title track can be seen below. The clip was filmed in March under the direction of Jan Öhlenschläger in Frankfurt.
"R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)" was released on June 20 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2012's "A Girl Called Cerveza" was recorded at Studio 23 in Frankfurt, Germany.
Taking inspiration from the motto "never change a winning team," TANKARD worked with producer Michael Mainx (BÖHSE ONKELZ, DER W, D-A-D, DISBELIEF), who helmed the band's last effort. TANKARD has also chosen to use Patrick Strogulski, who created the artwork for "A Girl Called Cerveza" and is also a student of Sebastian Krüger, the artist that was responsible for TANKARD's previous album artwork up to the 2012 release.
States Gerre: "'R.I.B.' continues the story of 'Chemical Invasion'. The crazy professor is back is takes revenge on mankind, because he failed in 1987! The cover is done again by Patrick Strogulski, an apprentice of Sebastian Krüger and really hits the spot! As always with TANKARD, things shouldn't be taken too seriously!"
