Three Dimensional Tanx

Lancaster psychedelic rock five piece Three Dimensional Tanx have a new album set for release.

Formed in the year 2000, the original line-up of Spacey, Loz, Sean and David recorded two albums and a compilation before guitarist David Blackwell left to concentrate full-time on the Lovely Eggs.

Richard and Pete joined to complete the new five piece line up and Three Dimensional Tanx set about creating new music for a new era.

Ahead of the release of their new album Attack, Three Dimensional Tanx return with an immediately infectious single ‘Son of Go’.

At just one minute 52 seconds long, not a second is wasted in this energetic statement of intent.

Stalwarts of the scene, over the course of their career to date they have been ‘sound carriers’ for Can man Damo Suzuki, performed at Tate Britain with artist Linder Sterling, played at a Spacemen 3 art exhibition at the request of Will Carruthers (Spacemen 3, Spiritualised, Dead Skeletons) and commanded a huge crowd at 2013’s Liverpool Psych Fest, despite clashing with Fuzz and Hookworms.

The band have also played with the likes of Aquaserge (featuring members of Tame Impala and Stereolab), the Oscillation, Mugstar, Nik Turner (Hawkwind), Trembling Bells, the Lucid Dream, the Cosmic Dead, Helicon, Mind Mountain, Keys, Pusher, Paddy Steer and many more.

January 2014 saw the release of a new, eponymous album, with a gig featuring the full album played straight though recorded and released as Three Dimensional Tanx LIVE! in July 2014.

New studio album Attack is released on August 29.

Son of Go is the first single to come from that record.

Three Dimensional Tanx play The Golden Lion in Lancaster on August 20 and October 14, The Loft in Rugby on September 2, The Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green, London on October 8, and various venues at Lancaster Music Festival between October 13 and 17.
