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; find preorders at THIS LOCATION.
“97,901,726 Confirmed Kills is an album created by a band that clicked instantly. We all knew one another from the other bands we’re in and knew what each of us were capable of, but we didn’t know what direction we wanted to go with PAIN TANK. This album was written in about a week-and-a-half and recorded live in about a day-and-a-half. Any preconceived notions we had coming in went directly out the window and we played off one another until we reached what we felt was something important.”
Decibel offers with their stream of the record,
“While the noisy hardcore grind outfit absolutely rips through thirteen tracks, the band isn’t just on a senseless killing frenzy. The songs are an outlet and an examination of pain. 97,901,726 Confirmed Kills isn’t just one of the most brutal album titles you’ve heard this year: it’s an attempt to calculate all the deaths caused through wars the United States has been involved in. The mental weight of that thought coupled with the explosive force of Pain Tank’s music hits like artillery fire.”
