Official press release:
Washington, DC area hardcore grind outfit Pain Tank is preparing to mercilessly deploy their 97,901,726 Confirmed Kills album in March, having tested one of the album’s deadly wares on the public with a stream of “Starvation Cockhard”.
Pain Tank was formed in 2016 as a side project for its four members, who also hold rank in the likes of Construct Of Lethe, Palkoski, Cammo Shorts and Reticle; the project rapidly became a focused, permanent act which ventures into musical and lyrical territory not explored with their other bands.
Surging with unchecked, annihilating, white-knuckled aggression, Pain Tank‘s debut recorded massacre 97,901,726 Confirmed Kills was recorded live at Trepan Studios in Woodbridge, Virginia over the course of eight hours. The band felt it necessary to capture the intensity and aggression of a live performance, which can easily get lost in more conventional studio tracking. Boiling over with homicidal rage, the album blasts thirteen rampaging tracks point blank into the listener’s face in under twenty-four minutes, 97,901,726 Confirmed Kills was engineered and mixed by drummer Tony Petrocelly, who also handled the art and layout for the record.
Pain Tank will release 97,901,726 Confirmed Kills on digital and CD platforms through the band’s own independent Edgewood Arsenal Records on March 17th.
