February 7, 2012: Classic Rock Magazine interview with Algy Ward. June 17, 2009: http:// www.classicrockmagazine.com/ news/tank-no-tanks/
The Official Press Release from Algy Ward(TANK). Dated March 13, 2009:
"Message to all Filth Hounds. Encryption negative. Eat then read. Subject: Recent Misinformation.
... I have not retired. And I will try to explain that due to ill health I am no longer able to perform live as I suffer from the following conditions (Google them for an in-depth explanation):- Tinnitus (constant ringing or noise in the ears) and hyperacusis (ultra sensitivity to loud sounds). When these are combined in a high noise level environment they cause middle ear balance and stability problems, nausea, disorientation and migraines (like being seasick on dry land!). I have tried all types of hearing devices and ear plugs designed for musicians playing at high volume but none have worked for me. Believe me it is no fun falling over without warning!
After consultations with specialist doctors and therapists I was advised (even with wear plugs) that to continue to play live would result in irreversible hearing damage and to avoid where possible contact with loud noise. I also have chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia (constant muscle pain/tiredness) and take seven, sometimes more, different medications (12 tablets total) a day to function somewhere near normal.. Even without hearing problems I am not in any condition, or likely to be, to go on tour.
But as you can hear at www.myspace.com/algytank I can, although painful, still write and record and will continue to do so with the Tank name, logos and images which are my intellectual property and copywrite. Thank you for your kind messages of support. They, like you, mean a lot to me.
Want more TANK/Sturmpanzer demos/information? Keep in touch with www.officialtank.net, 
www.myspace.com/algytank and www.reverbnation.com/ tankofficial and you will be advised, don't believe the lies, remember ALGY=TANK=ALGY. Hammer on! Depart from me ye cursed into ever lasting flames. ALGY."Tom Angelripper/Algy Ward
Algy WardJanuary 24, 2012: Interview with Algy Ward: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y1h1eZU4VM from 1997, Germany. You'd be interested! HAMMER ON!

December 20, 2008: Press release from Mick Tucker & Cliff Evans:  "TANK are back in action! The legendary British power metal mercenaries have re-grouped and are ready for battle once more.
The release of the ‘DOGS OF WAR’ boxed set earlier this year was a great success which led to the inevitable re-release of the entire back catalogue (Metal Mind records). This has proved very popular with the die hard fans of old and helped to amass a new army of young fans worldwide. TANK are now very much in demand on the live front after being absent from the touring circuit for several years. With a distinctive attitude and energy to our trademark sound, TANK now have a new all-star lineup, fully equipped to crush everything in their path.
Unfortunately original vocalist/bassist ALGY WARD has decided to retire from active service and concentrate his efforts on writing his long awaited autobiography covering his career with THE DAMNED, THE SAINTS and TANK. We will miss him fighting alongside us and wish him all the best. THE WAR DRAGS EVER ON!
Joining MICK TUCKER and CLIFF EVANS on guitars will be original TANK drummer Mark Brabbs. A very welcome return for the powerhouse skins man. Two new recruits will now be joining the ranks. Ex RITCHIE BLACKMORE’S RAINBOW/YNGWIE MALMSTEEN frontman,
DOOGIE WHITE, will be taking care of all vocal duties and ex BRUCE DICKINSON band bass player, CHRIS DALE, completes the lineup.
This new lineup will prove to be a major force to be reckoned with and will add a new dimension to the unmistakable TANK sound, driving them forward, unstoppable into 2009. Prepare for battle! TANK are back!"
October 14, 2008:  Mick and Cliff will be appearing at the 'KEEP IT TRUE FESTIVAL' in Germany on the 24th/25th April 2009.  They have joined forces with TOM ANGELRIPPER(bass/vocals) from SODOM and a drummer T.B.A.  They are going to play two classic TANK songs 'This Means War' and 'Don't Walk Away'.  Mick says: "it will be nice to see our old friend Tom again, have a few beers and "kick some ass".
Other news: TANK featured in Brazilian ROADIE CREW magazine, issue # 110 background section.
Graeme CrallanJuly 29, 2008: R.I.P. Graeme Crallan! Very sad news: ex- TANK & WHITE SPIRIT drummer Graham Crallan died on Sunday night July 27, 2008. 
Message from Cliff Evans: Tomorrow at 10.30 a.m. we will bury our fallen comrade Graeme Crallan. His drumming on 'Honour and Blood' is now legendary and worthy of the Victoria cross medal for bravery. He was a loyal member of our ranks and completed several tours of duty during his short time with us. Tomorrow, Friday 1st August 2008,10.30 a.m., may we suggest 2 minutes of loud metal in memory to the Mighty 'CRALL' R.I.P.

Algy was several times at the hospital for the check ups and he's taking some break on the coast of England right now. When Algy's at home he's writing for the new TANK CD. Tanks for all your e-mails.
January 25, 2004 Here's update from Algy Ward himself: "Hi Oleg and everybody, I've been extremely touched by every ones thoughts, their kind words and best wishes, e-mails, phone calls etc. but the statement posted was unfortunately slightly misleading, I haven't been diagnosed with a tumour as yet, but I'm waiting for the analysis, it could be a glandular problem(hopefully). The doctors don't know, but there's a lump under my skull, behind my left ear, all the same, I have had a tumour before, on my rib cage during 1995, and thankfully that one turned out to be benign, what I do know is that my hearing is in a state, and being near any noise at all is virtually un- bearable, whether this is permanent, it is too soon to tell, I'd have loved to play the shows in the U.S., but I'm not well enough to travel, let alone perform, I hope the men in white coats, can sort me out over the next couple of months.... Thanks again for everyone's concern, and I'll be in touch... Your ever loving... uncle Algy.  HAMMER ON!!! Good night children... everywhere..."
