TANKENGINE are a brutalist art rock band from Newcastle. The Geordie trio comprise of Ross Harley on vocals and bass (Yourcodenameis:milo), Adam Hiles on vocals and guitar (Yourcodenameis:milo, The Sh*tty Beatles) and Iván Diaz on drums (Lingua Vulgaris).
This is their new music, but it is not their first rodeo. They have been to many, many rodeos. Debut EP “TANKENGINE” (released 17th May 2019 via Sapien Records) showcases their ability both as players and writers, tuneful and melodic, also harkening back to the US college/noise rock and UK post-punk. The tracks showcase a lifelong diet of rock music.
