TANK REVEAL NEW LINEUP; BAND TO RETURN TO THE US FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 1985
After a long break from touring and recording, Tank will now be advancing forward with a formidable new lineup and a return to the US for the first time since 1985, with an appearance at the 2024 Hell’s Heroes VI Festival in Houston, Texas, March 21-23.
Joining Tank guitar duo Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans will be bass player Gav Gray, formerly a member of UK rockers The Almighty and also NWOBHM band, Tygers Of Pan Tang.
Gav Gray: “I’d been on a hiatus and and started to enjoy home recording, then Mick (Tucker) called…. `You wanna play bass for Tank?`…. I couldn’t say no, Algy was an inspiration since seeing The Damned supporting Motorhead in Newcastle… I get that Tank had evolved over the years but this was a real rock n roll band, a band that kept the name alive playing the music I grew up on with swagger, no nonsense and I cant wait to be part of it.”
There’s a welcome return for drummer Mark Cross to the ranks. Mark was previously with Tank on several of their European tours and has also occupied the drum stool for bands including The Scorpions, Helloween and Firewind.
Mark Cross – “I’m really stoked to be back in the Tank camp and be part of the new production. I’ll be laying down drums for the new album this fall and hit the road in 2024. We started this venture in 2011 (12 years ago) touring Europe and it always felt to me like an unfinished chapter when I left the band. Well, our paths meet again and I’m looking forward to working with Mick, Cliff, Marcus and Gav and play classic and new Tank songs for ya!
Mick Tucker – “When we were looking for a new frontman we were very fortunate to come across Swedish vocalist Marcus Von Boisman who was fronting his own band – Knights Of The Realm. He came very highly recommended by Hammerfall guitarist/producer Pontus Norgren who thought Marcus would be ideal for Tank. He wasn’t wrong! This is the line up we’ve been looking for and everyone is 100% dedicated.”
Marcus Von Boisman – ”I was really flattered when I was asked to join this legendary band! Tank! A band that has been an influence for so many through the years! We already have a killer album in the making and writing songs together has been so much fun! I’m looking forward to the release and the upcoming shows. Let’s see how loud the Tank fans can scream!”
Cliff Evans – “It really feels like we’ve got the right guys on board now so we can get to work and head back out on the road with the confidence of knowing we have the best line up for the job. Gav and Mark are a really solid rhythm section and frontman Marcus has the voice and attitude that perfectly suits our music. Can’t wait to get on stage with these guys and make some noise!”
Tank will soon be announcing tour/festival dates for 2024 and a brand new studio album is now being recorded for a scheduled spring 2024 release.
First Festival show announced for Hell´s and Heroes in Houston TX on March 21 – 23, 2024.

JOE STUMP´S TOWER OF BABEL is delighted to announce that the new album is in progress and the mixing has began.
Mark Cross took the production and mixing under his wings recording the drums and partly vocals at his Studio “The Drum Dungeon” and is currently mixing the album with Greek engineer George Aspiotis at “Studio Aspiotis” in Athens Greece.
Mark Cross commnents: “Finally we made it back into the Studio to start mixing the second album.
It´s been too long and I can say that it will be a great album. (Laughs) What else would I say….. No, honestly, we´ve decided this time to avoid plastic surgery and not sound like everyone else, which means we looked back and took the path of analog mixing to get that fat punch back, which is an absolutely must for our music.
We´ve brought the mix down to an SSL enjoying vintage outboards to make it sound right and realized that it has been decades I last sat in front of such a beautiful desk … the sound man, you know, you just can´t top vintage analog, no chance. Y
And a MAC and some plugins are helpful too, no doubt about that!!
Of course productions like these are more costy, but if you know where you going, this is the way to do it…..”
More updates coming soon ….

JOE STUMP´S TOWER OF BABEL are back!!
The band announced new activities earlier this year and is currently in the studio recording their second album. Joe Stump´s Tower of Babel lifted the dark clouds after the pandemic and returns with a new album in progress to its successor “Lake of Fire”, which had been released in 2017.
In 2021 the band announced their new singer Jo Amore (Nightmare/Kingcrown) and celebrated their first concert after three years at the “Mennecy Metal Fest 2022” in France.
Jo Stump stated: “It was not easy to find the right vocalist and to be honest, we were very fortunate this time. We were of course looking for the tone that matches our music, which is, as you all know a classic rock mixture with strong Rainbow, Dio, etc. elements. That being said, it´s now full speed ahead!”
Drummer Mark Cross adds: “It´s been a rough time for every musician being absent from the scene not being able to play live for such a long time. Nevertheless, we are back and have been working on our new album for quite some time. I guess the pandemic slowed us all down a bit and we are looking forward to the future and a release with new music.”
LONG LIVE THE TOWER!
Here you can see a reel of fan footage from the Mennecy Rock Festival, France from September 16, 2022, featuring: Jo Amore (vocals), Joe Stump (guitar), Mistheria (keyboards), N I c Angileri (bass), Mark Cross (drums).

Hello my friends!
I have some very bad news….. I´ve lost my 10×10″ Tama Starclassic BB Tom in Coral reef with gun black lugs and hoops and a couple of Shure mics.
I´ve shipped them via a logistic company from Hamburg Germany to Athens Greece, yes, almost two years ago! The only thing missing, was the tom and a backpack or suitcase with 2 x Beta 91, a few 57´s and cables.
I´ve called everyone involved and searched everywhere possible for quite some time and now thought to make it public! Perhaps I get lucky …..
IF someone has seen or found those ANYWHERE, in a studio or a possible past live or rehearsal location, please let me know. It´s too hard to remember where they might have gone.
The Tom was in a 10″ black with yellow straps Hardcase. I remember packing it all on the pallets in Hamburg in 2021, however sometimes one can be wrong.
I´d deeply appreciate if anyone can provide information. I´ve asked Tama if they can rebuild the tom for me, but sadly they don´t use Bubinga woods no more and neither have stock left and also don´t work this particular colour anymore, so it´s a no go
It´s a one time custom made kit with the old school power sized toms, so whoever found it …..it won´t match any other drum kit and mine dearly misses it and so do I, it´s my baby !!
Thank you all and hopefully someone will get back to me with good news!
I´d deeply appreciate it!!

As previously stated, Mark Cross launches a new adventure.
With former band mates he presents a “Best of …..” live concept featuring music of the bands he has worked with, as well as new material.
Tour dates are planned for 2020.
Mark says: “It is a *Mark Cross & Friends* thing, yes, but calling it like that, sounds too cheesy. I am a band guy and not really the solo artist running an ego trip, know what I mean? We´re a bunch of old band mates and everyone deserves a piece of the cake and decided to go with a band name…… OCEAN´S EYE!
And where does Ocean´s Eye come from? “Ah yes…..one of my passions is diving and last summer, I fished out a nice big mussel shell on the island of Evia, Greece and there it was hiding inside, that beautiful orange eye-shaped gem! A greek fisherman said it´s called “Mati tis Thalassas”, which means ocean´s eye. Make sense? Perfection and beauty ….. guess I found a new necklace!
I am also very proud to announce that I´ll be working again with Apollo, Firewind´s former singer (also Spiritual Beggars), who will take over the vocal duties whenever he is available. He´s a fantastic singer and frontman,. The perfect choice for us and exactly what the fans deserve.
On bass duties, the position goes to London based Mr. Gus Macricostas. For all Saxon fans, Gus filled in for Nibbs Carter in 2016 and played the bass on Biff Byford´s recently released solo album “School of hard knocks”.
I am very pleased to re-unite with both of them. Apollo and I have spent the most important years in Firewind together and with Gus we´ve played in bands back in the 90´s and London based band “Metalworks” since 2012. Metalworks also featured Richie Faulkner (Judas Priest) and Davey Rimmer (Uriah Heep).
It’s all shaping up nicely and I will announce more musicians involved very soon.
Live we will slam a set featuring music of my time in Helloween, Firewind, Metalium, Kingdom Come a.o., just to name a few, and also some of my new material, which I am recording at the moment.”
In the new year we will announce our first tour dates and the rest of the band!

Best known for working with the rock bands Firewind, Tainted Nation and filling in for the Scorpions at the Grand Prix in Bahrain on 5thApril 2014, Mark Cross, groovy and hard-hitting veteran drummer launches a new adventure.
The line-up is selected from the league of past band mates, a powerful team of world class players to represent Mark´s work; a ‘best of works’ from his collaborations with bands and artists on stage and in the studio, past to present, with a perfect setlist for a spectacular show.
Mark says: “This whole thing is brand new and has already gained great feedback. In brief, after a long pause it is time to get back on stage and play for ya!
Playing music live nowadays means so much more than burning thousands of pounds for recording and throwing a new production on the market that never really reaches the masses.
This show is not only about drumming, of course it plays a major role, but is mainly focused on the music, good playing and performance. Every involved musician´s talent will make this a great sounding and unforgettable experience.
It is great to work with top musicians, who have also been involved with all these bands and projects.
A very versatile set indeed with many surprises.
Soon I will let you all know the line-up and name of the band!
Horns and thumbs up boys and girls ….. ”

I’m stoked to announce my participation in the Vivaldi Metal Project as a drummer for their live shows!
Three Years ago I recorded the drums on “Grande Madre” amongst 149 other incredible Musicians, the “Maestro” Mistheria, Atma Anur, Dani Löble, Alberto Rigoni, Rob Rock, Tommy Denander, Bill Hudson, Victor Smolski, Rick Wakeman and many more on this massive project “Four Seasons” released by Pride & Joy Music in 2016.
I am thrilled to say that today I am taking over the drum duties alongside the talented Maestro Mistheria, with whom I proudly also play in Joe Stump’s Tower of Babel.
Soon we will announce the winters hows in Europe!
See you all soon on the road!
