As you know the mighty ANVIL will be here next week. Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow took the time out of this hectic schedule to have a killer chat with Casper about the life and times of a metal power house band and what to expect during this tour!
Part 2 below
With 16 albums under their belt and their 17th one on the way, ANVIL pride themselves as being one of the most hardworking bands on the plane. The 2009 rockumentary Anvil – The Story of Anvil detailed the story of band that somehow fell into obscurity. However this award winning feature gave them a second wave of popularity, and resulted in the band playing the infamous Download Festival plus supported our very own AC/DC on tour! This is a band that had everything, lost it all but never gave up. To quote Lips – “This is the Rocky Balboa of heavy metal”. They provide witness to the power of the human spirit, played to a heavy metal soundtrack.
“They can shred with the best of them, and on this night, proved that metal has no age.” – Zumic
Original members Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow on vocals/guitar and Robb ‘Robbo’ Reiner on drums once again bring the madness to Australia alongside Chris Robertson on bass. This is your chance to rock on to all your favourite ANVIL classics – Metal on Metal, March of the Crabs, Forged In Fire, Mothra plus more!
“the band cranked one great song after another” – Sleazeroxx
On the live front, an ANVIL show is an endless party. With headbanging and sing-a-longs from start to finish, there is a smile on everyone’s face. Combined with the witty banter and theatrics from Lips and the phenomenal pounding of drums by Robbo, an ANVIL show is everything you’d expect and then some. This is classic metal and pure entertainment.
“Lips was strutting through the crowd playing his guitar surrounded by headbangers” – Metal Obession (Melbourne Show Review)
The return of ANVIL is a celebration for the ages. Their humility, love for their fans and passion for music is second to none. Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll – long live ANVIL!
“they remain a glowing advertisement for old-school metal and its principal values of fun, friendship and getting hammered. The dream lives.” – The Guardian
