Anvil Releasing New Album "Anvil Is Anvil"

Anvil will release the confidently titled "Anvil is Anvil" on February 26, 2015 via SPV/Steamhammer.

"We're sometimes criticized for never changing," guitarist and vocalist Lips explains. "But why should we change something we're renowned for? Isn't it much more important to stay faithful to yourself? To do what you do best? The idea behind our latest album is: we are what we are, and that's how it's going to stay!"

"Anvil is Anvil" presents Lips, drummer Robb Reiner and new bassist Chris Robertson in a thoroughly magic metal moment. Lips had this to say: "Time will tell whether this album is the absolute pinnacle of our career. But I would already refer to it as 'gaining the momentum.' The year 2013 was a perfect new start for Anvil. We were touring, went on to write the new material, toured again and returned to compose some more. During that time, the new line-up gelled into a real unit. The arrival of Chris was just as significant for us as the film back in 2008. He helped me enormously with my vocal lines, which is why my voice sounds better than ever on stage and also in the studio."

Regarding the cover, Robb Reiner ads: "This time around, it was suggested I paint the cover art for the release by brother Lips, after I had come up with the concept and showing him study sketches drawn out. The simple straight to the point composition was much fun to render on canvas in oil. I spent about 6 weeks to complete it."
