The Tanks

Keep Breaking Down

The Tanks | Keep Breaking Down | SC019

This will be the band's second full length and was recorded by Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios (William Elliott Whitmore, ft (the Shadow Government), The Horde, Eyes) earlier in the year. Current plans have this release coming out as an LP-with-CD (limited to 500) and as a stand-alone CD with hand screened packaging (limited to 500), with art by Ryan Garbes (raccoo-oo-oon) for both the screened and printed covers! The band is currently booking a Midwest/East coast tour starting in November, check their myspace for dates and places.

Like a thunderous roar, The Tanks bring their sonic destruction to the venues of the US and someday the world. The Tanks feature a full steam ahead pounding style brought forth by the crushing bass of Adam Luksetich (Nethervoid), the over the top vocals and lyrics of Kevin Koppes (the dude wears mic guantlets!), and the drum wizardry of Joe "The Madman" Ross (weather is happening, swing by seven). In their own words, "We live in Iowa City, IA. We're all originally from Dubuque, Iowa. We'd love to play a show in your town. Especially if we're on tour. We hope to tour a lot more in the future. It's ever-so-much fun." One of the best live bands we've ever had the pleasure of seeing. As for a sound, we think it sounds a little like if Shellac played nothing but Kiss covers. Fun, talented, and seriously fucked. Take everything your best friends like, that's The Tanks.
