Iconic Thrash Metal band Tankard have just revealed the album cover for their upcoming album 'R.I.B.'.The artwork was brought to life by Patrick Strogulski, who is a student of the former Tankard cover artist Sebastian Krüger.

On the subject of the artwork, vocalist Andreas "Gerre" Geremia commented "R.I.B. continues the story of Chemical Invasion. The crazy professor is back and takes revenge on mankind, because he failed in 1987!

"The cover is done again by Patrick Strogulski, an apprentice of Sebastian Krüger and really hits the spot! As always with Tankard, things shouldn't be taken too seriously!"

War Cry
Fooled By Your Guts
R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)
Riders Of The Doom
Hope Can't Die
