TANKARD Issue Lyric Video For ‘Pay To Pray’ Track
December 21st, 2017

German thrash metal group Tankard have released an official lyric video for the track ‘Pay To Pray’, which can be viewed below.

Frontman Gerre commented: “‘Pay To Pray’ is about ‘prosperity belief’! The theory says that God blesses you with material things, and if you’re poor, then there’s something wrong with your beliefs! Clerical institutions receive a lot of donations and that’s why they are rich – due to their beliefs. These donations are supposedly then meant to be passed down to the poor… but not before stopping to visit the pockets of Bishops on the way. This is all portrayed in our latest lyric video for ‘Pay To Pray’. It’s also one hell of a live song! See you in hell… or on tour first!”

Tankard issued 17th full-length studio album One Foot In The Grave on June 2nd, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.

One Foot In The Grave was recorded during January 2017 at Gernhart Studios in Troisdorf with producer Martin Buchwalter.

The cover artwork was created by Patrick Strogulski.
