ANVIL have tentatively set "This Is Thirteen" (or "TIT" for short) for their upcoming thirteenth studio album. 13 songs are scheduled to appear on the CD, the cover for which will be a superstitious theme, as in a broken mirror, black cat and the anvil under a ladder.
As well as issuing ANVIL's new CD, "Back to Basics", Screaming Ferret Wreckords, LLC will also be re-releasing much of ANVIL's back catalogue in the U.S. They will be remastered and include bonus tracks.
