Watertank Releasing "Destination Unknown" Album

Clermont-Ferrand, France-based Solar Flare Records has inducted a new act into the label's realms of auditory dementia, bringing Watertank on board for the impending release of sophomore LP, "Destination Unknown." Solar Flare Records comments:

"Two years after the band's first release, Watertank returns with this nine-track full-length, 'Destination Unknown,' bringing forth nearly thirty-five minutes of brand new material. While the album came together quickly, being composed and recorded with unusually short notice, the LP cohesively reveals a more confident band through this new batch of strongly crafted songs.

"The Nantes-­based band is still in love with melodic hooks, and down­tuned heavy riffing, as heard especially in cuts like 'Dcvr' and 'Doomed Drifters,' yet sees them evolving from their post­-hardcore background in tracks like 'Contrails' and exploring new territories completely within 'Scheme' and the title track, as always aiming to deliver lasting listening enjoyment.

"Once again recorded by Patrice Guillerme (Papier Tigre, Patriotic Sunday) and mastered by Carl Saff (Coliseum, Pilot To Gunner), 'Destination Unknown' marks a step forwards for the renewed line­up. If you're into the likes of Torche, Quicksand, Jawbox, Sense Field and Failure, Watertank will be for you."

1. Automatic Reset
