ANVIL Frontman Releases Message Of Support To Fans In Japan

Guitarist/vocalist Steve "Lips" Kudlow of Canadian heavy metal legends ANVIL has released the following message to the band's fans in Japan following the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that shook the country on March 11 morning and left more than five thousand killed and many more missing:

"Just like to say I'm sending my regards to my dear friends and fans in Japan. I wish you all the very best and hope for your safety. Japan is a place of pure determination and is the most highly motivated society in the world. You shall prevail..."

Performance and question-and-answer footage from ANVIL's fall 2009 trip to Japan to promote the band's acclaimed documentary, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil", can be viewed below.

ANVIL will release its new album, "Juggernaut Of Justice", on May 10 via The End Records. The CD was recorded at Dave Grohl's (NIRVANA, FOO FIGHTERS) Studio 606 in Northridge, California with famed producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, AIRBOURNE, FILTER, ATREYU, ALICE COOPER). Prior to the arrival of the new album, The End will release the definitive ANVIL anthology. The collection will be comprised of classics old and new, with some surprises, and will showcase the band's entire career spanning back to 1978.

The "Juggernaut Of Justice" song is available for download as part of The End Records' spring 2011 sampler at this location.
