AFM Records is proud to announce Canadian legends ANVIL's US tour to complement their crushing new album Impact Is Imminent out May 20th! Their nineteen studio album with fourteen songs feature plenty of highlights and special features: "Ghost Shadow", the first single/ video. The first single is at full pedal-to-the-metal mode, featuring extraordinary harmonies and a strange, dark ghost train atmosphere.

Lips states returning to the stage– “Hell and high water has come and gone now it's time to rock! It can't happen soon enough!”

The Canadian trio belongs to one of the most distinctive bands of their genre, often cited as having influenced notable metal acts such as SLAYER, MEGADETH, METALLICA or ANTHRAX. After 40 years in the music industry, touring the world in sold-out venues, and garnering critically acclaim for Anvil! The Story Of Anvil – the number #1 music documentary of every metalhead – the iconic band returns with their nineteenth album.

New album Impact Is Imminent fires off merciless riff attacks, relentlessly driving drums and impressive bass grooves, complemented by vocal melodies and lyrics that inevitably drill themselves into the listener’s aural tract. As always, Kudlow and founding member and drummer Robb Reiner, are at the epicentre of this heavy metal extravaganza. For the past eight years, they have been supported by bassist Chris Robertson, who not only complements the ANVIL fold on a personal level, but also enhances the tracks with his powerful low frequency bass parts and backing vocals.

Robb Reiner said – “FUCK COVID…After 2+yrs away here we come….Looking forward to seeing all you pounders…Let’s make sure to Rock That Shit!”
