That Fucking Tank

That Fucking Tank

“Lightning Bolt and Death From Above 1979 might have been rocking the bro beats’n’strings dynamic a few years back while That Fucking Tank were still largely unknown, but it’s our boys from Leeds who look set to be victors in the longer campaign.” NME

Since forming over a decade ago, Leeds based duo That Fucking Tank have been at the forefront of the UK’s DIY underground music scene, releasing critically acclaimed records on numerous fiercely independent Northern labels. That said, they have occasionally flirted with the mainstream – Leeds & Reading Festivals in 2008 and 2013’s Arena tour with Foals, for example – but That Fucking Tank is a band committed to testing and advancing the Do-It-Yourself ethos. They aim to book gigs, record records and make music in a way that contributes towards an alternative to the profit-driven music industry; demonstrating that good music can be experienced at, and emerge from, the grassroots. Just how we like it.

Their erm, “novel” name, energetic performances and extreme volume have had them perform all over Europe and the UK with brain-mangling regularity, sharing stages and tours with bands including Hella, Q and not U, Lungfish, Oxes, Unsane, Kid Commando, GI Joe, Chevreuil, Grabba Grabba Tape, Poltergroom, US Maple, Neptune, Zu, Whitehouse, AIDS Wolf, Vialka, Nervous Kid, Don Caballero, Hoover, The Fucking Champs, Lightning Bolt, Melt Banana, The Fall, Bilge Pump, Foals, The Ex and the like.
