Canadian metal legends ANVIL will release their new album, “Anvil Is Anvil”, on February 26, 2016 worldwide (excluding Japan) via SPV/Steamhammer. The album will be available on digipak CD, LP, and as a digital download.
ANVIL‘s latest album, “Hope In Hell”, sold a little under 800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The disc followed up “Juggernaut Of Justice”, which opened with around 1,600 units back in May 2011. The 2009 re-release of the band’s 2007 CD, “This is Thirteen”, registered a first-week tally of 1,400 to enter the Top New Artist Albums chart at No. 19.
ANVIL last year parted ways with bassist Sal Italiano and replaced him with Chris Robertson. Lips told M.E.A.T.‘s Drew Masters that Chris has actually been part of the ANVIL camp for some time now, having been both their rehearsal bassist as well as a member of their road crew. Lips also stated that he’s glad the band is, once again, “all Canadian — that is the heart and soul of ANVIL.”
