Valley Of Tears, the new album by the British heavy metal legend TANK, has had its release date pushed back to September, 18th from the previously announced June, 8th. Cliff Evans, the band’s guitarist commented on the situation in an official statement:

“We’ve decided, along with our label Metal Mind, to put the release date for our 10th album Valley Of Tears back until September 2015. Originally planned for release in June, we now feel that the album really deserves more time and attention during the mixing stage to get it exactly how we want it. Having ZP Theart on vocals has upped our game once again and the attention to detail in the albums production requires more time to get it exactly how we want it. Valley of Tears will definitely be worth the wait!”

Evans comments also the recording process:

Bobby (Schottkowski) recorded the drum tracks in Germany with his producer Waldemar Sorychta who's previous work includes albums for LACUNA COIL, TIAMAT and SODOM to name but a few. The drums are the backbone of the album and they seriously kick ass! Barend (Courbois) laid down the bass guitar in Holland a couple of days before heading out on a sold out world tour with German metal legends BLIND GUARDIAN. He’ll be back with us for our festival shows later this summer. The guitars were recorded in London under the guidance of producer Phil Kinman who is the master at capturing the sound of a Les Paul through a Marshall amp. No frills. Just awesome power! The album will be mastered by Ade Emsley who recently undertook the task of remastering the entire IRON MAIDEN catalogue for 24 bit iTunes release. They’ll be some teasers coming up over the summer including a video for the title track "Valley Of Tears" and more tour dates will be announced soon.”

British heavy metal legend TANK return with their tenth studio album! Valley Of Tears is their first album release featuring the amazing vocal talents of former DRAGONFORCE frontman ZP Theart and marks a new era for the band. The vocalist injected new energy and inspiration into the band since joining them in 2013 and now it’s time to capture this sound on the new record! To complement ZP’s vocals TANK now have one of the best rhythm sections in metal: Bobby Schottkowski, formerly drumming with SODOM and current BLIND GUARDIAN member - Barend Courbois on bass. Together with Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans on guitars they ready to take another big step forward in the evolution of TANK and make another metal album of great quality that will surely stand the test of time.

The band’s last two releases War Machine and War Nation (both released on Metal Mind Productions) were two of their bestselling albums and featured amazing performances from former RAINBOW/MALMSTEEN and current SCHENKER vocalist - Doogie White. Valley Of Tears is heading in a much heavier direction and as always will be driven to the max by their trademark Gibson Les Paul/Marshall stack wall of sound. The album was produced by Phil Kinman.

Valley Of Tears is now scheduled for worldwide release on September 18th.
