The new album is Tankard’s 35th anniversary celebration.
German alcohol-themed Thrash Metal band Tankard will release their 17th studio album, “One Foot In The Grave”. This will celebrate their 35th anniversary as band and is scheduled to be out on June 2nd via Nuclear Blast.
Here’s what the band had to say about the upcoming album:
“Today we present the cover artwork of the anniversary album. With this, our iconic mascot, the Tankard-Alien, celebrates his return after about 13 years of absence. The alien was born in 1989 with the Alien EP and has already graced five album covers. Our fan club, Maniac Aliens, is named after it also. The artwork was brought to life by Patrick Strogulski, who is a student of Sebastian Krüger, the former Tankard cover artist. He also created the cover artworks for A Girl Called Cerveza and R.I.B..”
This brand new album was recorded at Gernhart Studios in Troisdorf with the producer Martin Buchwalter (DESTRUCTION, ACCUSER, PERZONAL WAR, SUIDAKRA).
