Posted: August 09, 2017
Two months ago, the German thrash metal legends TANKARD played the Eintracht Frankfurt club anthem 'Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee' in front of over 30.000 enthusiastic Frankfurt supporters, a short time before the kick-off of the German cup final between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund at Berlin's Olympic Stadium. Recentley, the band announced a new version of the EP "Schwarz-Weiß wie Schnee" (which has been completely sold out for over ten years). The EP will be released on CD and "7 Vinyl" on 15 September 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band reveal the cover artwork for this upcoming EP. The artwork was designed by cult comic artist Michael Apitz, whose comics have been published for years in the stadium newspaper of Eintracht Frankfurt. Pre-order the EP here: www.nuclearblast.de/tankard The Eintracht anthem, which has been played in the stadium for ten years before every home game of Eintracht Frankfurt, has now been completely re-recorded by the band. The thrashers were supported by Henni Nachtsheim (Badesalz), Ande Werner (Mundstuhl) and Roy Hammer (Roy Hammer & Die Pralinées), who can be heard in the backing choir.
