Gabor Deli-Molnar This unexpected album coming out of nowhere quickly took hold of my heart. It’s a shame it won't get the attention it deserves. Silent Running is ingenious, noisy, full of melodies, and a bold experimentation in the last three tracks. And the saxophone in the closing sonic beauty summoning the always uncompromising, grinning spirit of the brave David Bowie… Wow! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, gentlemen! Favorite track: Cryptobiosis.

Lee Gorman Top quality post-hardcore: aggressive and dynamic, but tempered with layers of melody and gauzy shoegaze guitar resonance. FFO Hum, Entropy, Deftones. Favorite track: Suffogaze.

After years of partial activity through constant line-up moves, Watertank put the final touch to their 3rd record in the summer of 2019. Named « Silent Running », the album is out in May 1st 2020, and refers to the idea of evolving behind the scenes, working unexposed. Romain Donet from the punk hardcore band Chaviré joined Watertank during the recording process, and Willy Étié (Weak) is now performing bass duties for (let’s hope) many shows to come.

Because of those personnel changes, this new batch of songs is sounding more rockish than before, but still loud. Extendind their Post-Hardcore roots with a blend of influences from Alternative-Rock to Shoegaze. Lyrically openhearted yet a bit cryptic, a theme emerges throughout the record, inspired by the front cover glass-tardigrade survival features and resilience, but still about to implode, fitting the band ultimately.
