Soundhouse Records, the new London-based label started by Cliff Evans, guitarist for the UK bands TANK and KILLERS, has set an October 15 release date for the new TANK collection entitled "Live and Rare". The CD is expected to include nine tracks from the band's 1981 tour supporting MOTÖRHEAD, four 1981 studio demos (containing material that was later included on the "Filth Hounds of Hades" album), two songs from TANK's 1984 tour with METALLICA, and two live tracks recorded in 1999 in Japan.

One of the most influential formations which emerged in the beginnings of the NWOBHM madness was TANK — a fierce, ambitious young band, taking all that was the best in punk and metal to a higher level. The group was formed in Croydon (London, England) in 1980 by Alasdair "Algy" Mackie Ward, an experienced front man who wanted to go beyond his previous musical experiences, which included playing in THE SAINTS and THE DAMNED.
Metal Mind Productions will release the complete discography of TANK: "The Filth Hounds of Hades - Dogs of War 1981 - 2002" on November 19. The collection, containing TANK's full discography extended with exclusive bonus material, will be available in two editions: as a nine-CD box (8CD+DVD) and a six-LP box.
"The Filth Hounds of Hades - Dogs of War 1981 - 2002" includes the following albums:
* "Filth Hounds Of Hades"
