About us

TANK OF DANZIG is one of the most known post-punk/no wave bands out of Germany, especially with a cult following in Belgium and the Netherlands. Influenced by groups and artists like Gang Of Four, The Pop Group, Arto Lindsay or James White/Contortions, the band did over 150 live gigs from 1980 to 1985, also shared the same stage with Shriekback, Blurt, Virgin Prunes, Tom Robinson Band, Siglo XX and many more.

Originally TANK OF DANZIG started out as a trio in 1980 around band leader Schengel (vocals) who was formerly the bass player in „Psychotic Tanks“. The first ever release was the three track 7 inch single „Your Brain E.P.“, followed by the cult album „Not Trendy“ in 1982. After several releases until 1987, it became quiet around the band.

In 2020, Schengel and his new partner Hentschel (guitars) decided to revive the band and released a new single on October, 16th:

„American Hostages“.
