Canadian cult metal act ANVIL has completed recording its new album, "Pounding The Pavement". Drummer Robb Reiner states: "The birth of the tracks has yielded much classic ANVIL gold!! Without doubt, all pounders will find songs emerge as their favorites. Mixes of tracks to flow soon for us. [We're] very excited to hear the polished rawness encased in smashing metal!! Big, big thanks to the pledge campaign pounders in supporting the project!"
ANVIL frontman Steve "Lips" Kudlow previously said that the band was planning to record "thirteen songs which are diverse in subject and tempo, as all ANVIL albums."
Regarding the new album title, Lips said: "It is a description of what ANVIL has been doing for forty years — endlessly working and making a living. We love what we do so it's not complaining; it's celebrating our long, amazing history."
"Pounding The Pavement" is slated for release in early 2018.
Pledgers can pre-order the album now on ANVIL's campaign page. The leaders in direct-to-fan platforms, PledgeMusic allows artists to get more personal with their fans, offering pledgers updates straight from the band and items not available anywhere else.
