The veteran musicians, Anvil, are coming to London. The October 11 show is in support of their most recent album, Hope in Hell.
Anvil is a heavy metal band hailing from Toronto, Ontario. They’ve been in the music scene since 1978 and have an impressive list of albums, 15 to be exact.
Since the release of Hope in Hell, Anvil has played more than 40 shows in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan.
Lead member Steve Kudlow said the band has done “probably more touring for Hope in Hell than any album we’ve ever done.” He added, “I love to go out and play. And every chance and every moment I get to do it, it’s like a celebration. So is it going to be special? Damn right!”
Active as always, the band has nearly completed their next album, but Kudlow said, “we’re kind of holding the grenade and not pulling the pin yet. Lets face it, when you’ve got 15 studio albums, there’s no big rush”
Anvil has a lot of great songs lined up for their show, “the longevity of the band has given us the repertoire; we cherry pick our favourite songs. We pick what sounds the best and what has the most dramatic effect when you put a show together.”
You can catch the boys on stage at 10 p.m. at Eastside Bar and Grill (750 Hamilton Road). Anvil will be playing alongside guests Rebel Few and Soulheavy.
