British power metal mercenaries TANK recently tapped former DRAGONFORCE and current I AM I singer ZP Theart to front the band for their current shows while TANK's most recent vocalist, Doogie White (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, RAINBOW, CORNERSTONE), is out on tour and recording in the studio with Michael Schenker (ex-SCORPIONS, UFO).
Comments TANK guitarist Mick Tucker: "We thrive on bringing fresh blood into the band. It gives us a good kick in the ass and breathes new life into our songs.
"We've worked very hard over the past few years and have been rewarded with the success of our 'War Machine' and 'War Nation' albums and the release of our first official DVD, 'War Machine Live'.
"Bringing in a world-class vocalist like ZP is a great privilege for us and a real treat for metal fans."
Adds TANK guitarist Cliff Evans: "Mick and me have been playing together for a long time. We know what we want when it comes to making good music.
"We're very proud of the albums we made with Doogie and the response we received from the fans and press has proved that we are a band that can deliver the goods when it comes to it.
"We've been rehearsing with ZP this week and we can't wait to get on stage and do what we do best. Play British rock/metal the way it should be played."
On Saturday, May 18, TANK performed at the Rock Hard Festival in Germany. Evans states: "The Rock Hard show went very well. We definitely recruited many new fans and reinforced our position as one of the best British metal bands around at the moment."
The entire performance was streamed live online by "Rockpalast". And now you can watch a track recorded on that evening. "Judgement Day" is available at this location.
