Noisey has debuted the brand new video from French post-hardcore riffsmiths, WATERTANK, as the quartet prepares for the release of their sophomore LP, Destination Unknown, through their alliance with Solar Flare Records.
Delivering thirty-three minutes of slick, driving, melodic/post-hardcore on par with the likes of Torche, Quicksand, Jawbox, Fireside and Failure, the revamped WATERTANK lineup recorded Destination Unknown with Patrice Guillerme (Papier Tigre, Patriotic Sunday) and commissioned Carl Saff (Coliseum, Pilot To Gunner) for mastering duties, cohesively revealing a more confident band through this new batch of strongly crafted songs. Directed by the Special Sauce Productions (Hellfest, etc.), the video for “Surrender” sees the band’s humorous side showing through their emotionally ripping rock, mixing lively performance footage with a sort of “Where’s Waldo in-motion” storyboard. Offers Noisey alongside the premiere of the video, “The warm weather is back and everybody’s jerking off the new Refused, but if you’re into rain, cold, Quicksand and Failure. But no worries, because we have what you need: ‘Surrender,’ the first music video from Destination Unknown by Nantes based band WATERTANK. It’s in black & white and more disciplined than a North-Korean representative.”
