They'll be performing songs from their last album A Document of the Last Set as well as a new one or two. Luke Drozd has done a lovely poster which you'll be able to purchase at gigs too.
Then Tank are doing a gig at The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds where they've chosen the other bands that are playing that include The Family Elan, Commiserations and hopefully one or two more. That's on Saturday November 1st.
2013 is Tank's 10th anniversary year, so Gringo have released a commemorative record 'A Document of the Last Set'. It should be available in record shops from next week and you can order it from the GRINGO RECORDS SHOP now! It has been getting rave reviews from old faithfuls who think it is Tank's best record, to Johnny-come-latelys like Kerrang who gave it KKKK. It looks beautiful courtesy of David Hand and Kenn Goodall's mega skills (check out the booklet inside!) and all in all is the definitive document of TFT over the last decade. Tank will be touring Europe in February 2013!
