French alternative-rock four-piece TRANK unveil new official music video illustrating the single "Shining"
A few weeks after the re-release of its debut full-length record 'The Ropes' as a Deluxe 2xCD expanded reissue, French alternative-rock four-piece TRANK just unveiled a brand new official music video illustrating the song "Shining" - extracted from 'The Ropes - Monolith Edition' - and available right now on YouTube.
TRANK are a "new" rock band from France - chosen as opening act by Deep Purple, Anthrax, Papa Roach and Disturbed for their blend of alternative-rock, post-punk and metal.
TRANK are all French but write in English, a testimony to their lifelong love story with British and American acts, and influences too broad to list - from Deftones to Depeche Mode, Motörhead to Muse, Nick Drake to Nine Inch Nails, Pink Floyd to Porcupine Tree, REM to Rage Against The Machine.
Like all these references, TRANK like to mine the darkest places in the human soul, pull out the worst of life's frustrations and anxieties, and turn them into moments of catharsis that they can share with people who recognize those same feelings - be it by experience or anticipation.
After a first EP late 2016, and a series of singles in 2018 / 2019 which got them their prestigious opening slots, the guys gave birth to the fruit of all these collaborations with a their first album called 'The Ropes' (2020), re-released worldwide in 2021.
