New TANK Tracks To Debut Online

The legendary British power metal mercenaries TANK — featuring Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans on guitar and original TANK drummer Mark Brabbs alongside two new recruits, ex-RAINBOW/YNGWIE MALMSTEEN frontman Doogie White and ex-BRUCE DICKINSON bassist Chris Dale — will unveil two new tracks on their MySpace page later today (Monday, June 1).

Writing in his Rock Radio guest blog, White says: "I just recorded vocals on a couple of new TANK songs, 'Great Expectations' and 'Phoenix Rising', that I wrote with Mick.

"The songs will get their first airing at Sweden Rock on June 6, where we're opening for HEAVEN & HELL, then we have shows at various festivals around Europe."

In a recent interview with The Rainbow Fanclub Legacy, White stated about his collaboration with TANK, "Mick and I write well together but I need to understand TANK. It is important for the fans who have loved this band to understand that if Algy [Ward, original frontman] wanted to still play, then I would not be here. If they want to hear TANK, then they will have to adjust to the departure of Mr. Ward the same way the guys in the band have to. It will still be big riffing guitars. I have wanted to do a metal album for ages, so here goes."
