Guitarist/vocalist Steve "Lips" Kudlow of Canadian heavy metal legends ANVIL was recently interviewed by Downshifter of Full Metal Rock. You can now listen to the chat at this location.
ANVIL will perform live after the 10:00 p.m. screening of "Anvil! The Story Of Anvil" on June 3, 2009 at The Village East Cinema in New York City.
As a result of the initial success of "Anvil! The Story of Anvil", VH1 Films and Abramorama have extensively expanded the distribution of the film and will continue throughout the summer in additional markets across the country and Canada.
Since debuting in theaters in April, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" has already grossed $380,000 in only 37 theaters, including last week's sold-out "Anvil Experience" show at the NuArt theater in Los Angeles. "The Anvil Experience" tour will also continue throughout the summer in expanded markets. At each tour stop, the film will be played immediately followed by a short performance by the band. With recent features in Newsweek and Rolling Stone, this expansion of the film marks a stellar comeback for the 30 year-old band.
Praised as "the best documentary I've seen in years," by documentarian Michael Moore, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" contains appearances by an array of heavy metal icons, including METALLICA's Lars Ulrich, former member of GUNS N' ROSES, Slash, ANTHRAX's Scott Ian, and SLAYER's Tom Araya, among others.
ANVIL performed live after the screening of "Anvil! The Story Of Anvil", at the Nuart Theater in Los Angeles on May 13, 2009. Watch footage of the performance below.
