To celebrate Outkast frontman André 3000’s birthday today, May 27th, GRAMMY-nominated band Tank and The Bangas have shared a brand new single, fittingly titled “For André.”
“We love André 3000. We love Outkast. André has culturally shaped Hip Hop in a very unique way from his clothing to his cadence. Tank fell in love with him along with the rest of the world a long time ago. For his birthday, we all thought an ode to him would be the perfect gift,” the band noted on Instagram.
Tank and The Bangas have been a touring band since 2017, selling out venues both in the US and overseas, including festival appearances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Newport Jazz Festival and more.
The group was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the “10 Artists You Need To Know,” while lead singer Tarriona "Tank" Ball was featured in the September 2019 issue of Vogue and the November 2019 issue of Essence. Last year, the band released their major label debut Green Balloon, and capped off a monumental year with a GRAMMY-nomination for “Best New Artist.”
