ANVIL announce new album 'Legal At Last'
AFM Records are hugely excited to announce 'Legal At Last' the insanely good new album from Canadian metal heroes ANVIL! 'Legal At Last' will be released 14th February 2020 via AFM-Records and the album will be available as digipak, digital, black vinyl and some limited colored vinyl. When it comes to virtues such as endurance, unconditional commitment and a thoroughly down-to-earth attitude, Anvil are the measure of all things. Like few other metal acts, the band surrounding founding members Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow (vocals, guitars) and Robb Reiner (drums), plus bassist Chris Robertson have earned their laurels of blood, sweat and tears. Since their 2009 documentary film The Story Of Anvil which revealed the unvarnished truth about the music industry, the world has been aware that the day-to-day life of most musicians doesn’t consist of MTV Awards, Grammy ceremonies, red carpets, champagne and caviar but mainly of energy-sapping tours with little sleep, junk food and meagre earnings. Yet these difficult conditions have made Anvil what they are today: a band that stands rock solid in the turbulent waters of a musical genre that produces music like no other, by fans for fans. This new album is very special to Anvil: “Legal At Last is mainly about two things,” Reiner explains, pointing to the cover artwork with a grin. “We celebrate the legalisation of the Anvil bong because Canada changed its marihuana laws last year, which means we no longer sail close to the wind all the time. That’s why the album title announces that Anvil are legal at last. Our fans have always known that, but the public at large treated us like criminals for a long time.” Kudlow adds: “Legal At Last is our way of telling the public: ‘It’s okay, Anvil are okay, you’re allowed to like us at last!’” Tracklist 01 - Legal At Last 02 - Nabbed In Nebraska 03 - Chemtrails 04 - Gasoline 05 - I'm Alive 06 - Talking To The Wall 07 -Glass House 08 - Plastic In Paradise 09 - Bottom Line 10 - Food For The Vulture 11 - When All's Been Said And Done 12 - No Time Tour Dates: 26.02.2020 - FR - Colmar 27.02.2020 - FR - Lyon 28.02.2020 - FR - Savigny Le Temple 29.02.2020 - FR - Vaureal 01.03.2020 - NL - Den Bosch 04.03.2020 - UK - Edinburgh 05.03.2020 - UK - Derby 06.03.2020 - UK - Buckley 07.03.2020 - UK - Bradford 08.03.2020 - UK - Milton Keynes 09.03.2020 - UK - Manchester 11.03.2020 - NIR - Belfast 12.03.2020 - IE - Dublin 13.03.2020 - UK - Nuneaton 14.03.2020 - UK - Halifax 15.03.2020 - UK - Bridgewater 17.03.2020 - UK - Swinden 18.03.2020 - UK - Bristol 19.03.2020 - UK - Brighton 20.03.2020 - UK - Southampton 21.03.2020 - UK - London 22.03.2020 - UK - Machynlleth 24.03.2020 - NL - Leiden 25.03.2020 - DE - Essen 26.03.2020 - DE - Siegburg 27.03.2020 - BE - Lens 28.03.2020 - BE - Bilzen 29.03.2020 - DE - Regensburg 30.03.2020 - CH - Frauenfeld 31.03.2020 - DE - Mannheim 01.04.2020 - DE - München 02.04.2020 - DE - Stuttgart 03.04.2020 - CH - Luzern 05.04.2020 - DE - Saarbrücken 06.04.2020 - DE - Hannover 07.04.2020 - DE - Aschaffenburg 08.04.2020 - DE - Berlin 10.04.2020 - NL - Corneel 11.04.2020 - NL - Roermond 12.04.2020 - DE - Osnabrück 14.04.2020 - DE - Hamburg
